On my HDTiVo, it didn't want to record the final 2 epidodes because they were supposedly in the 28 day list. But I still had an SP for it on my DirecTiVo and those episodes were still in the To-Do list. Thankfully I didn't miss last week's episode because I was in Vegas....

Unfortunately, I DID miss last weeks episode. When I didn't see an episode from last week, I assumed that the previous week was the season Finale. Thankfully, on the radio this morning I heard an ad for tonights season finale. After chatting at work, I determined I had missed an episode!

Like others, I'm frustrated that a) the SP changed, and b) (most especially) there was no alert on the TiVo about it! We get mail about shifting Friends a few minutes, but nothing about this. Grrr...

If you can't trust TiVo, who can you trust?

Maybe a BitTorrent site has last weeks episode.

Luckily FX does Reruns. Why must they do this in the middle or near the end of a season, They did this with Enterprise too and no one caught it.

Different story than the Enterprise issue. In this case, it wasn't the show that changed title, it was the network itself...

That's true, If I remember right they added Star Trek to the title or something like that and it was done at the very beginning or before the season actually began. In this case, it's much worse because it was done with two episodes remaining and they should have known better.

But it had nothing to do with The Shield. It was the network itself that changed names.

And I suspect that for the tiny percentage of their audience that was affected (i.e., TiVo owners), the timing wasn't really a consideration. The vast majority of people would never have noticed that anything happened.

Remember--we're only important HERE!

Yeah, like use the otherwise utterly useless "message" feature.

Angry

%^*^$%&$&*%&*$!.

I knew I should have checked this particular forum more often. The Shield is one of those shows that we save up for the summer, so we are many weeks behind. Looking at the episode titles, it appears that like everyone else on this thread, our original season pass only caught through "Fire in the Hole". At this point, the only future episode left is the initial series pilot, so I think I'm screwed. I'll add the episode names into a wishlist in case FX runs them at some point in the future, but it is a shame that directv/tivo haven't figured out how to deal with this particular type of guide glitch yet.

Well, they could send an alert/message, but evidently it wasn't important enough as it only affected a small percentage of users...
