What does "First Aired" mean? To me it either means something other than the obvious, or else there must be an ongoing glitch in the TiVo Listings?
I took all of the attached pictures yesterday evening, 1/25/12.
The "CriminalMindsRerun" picture I attached shows the "First aired" date of 10/11/11. That indicates that it is a rerun that maybe
first aired on 10/11/11.
The "CriminalMindsNew" picture shows a "First aired" date of 1/24/12. This show is not a rerun, it did not air on 1/24/12. Why does TiVo say it did?
The same 1/24/12 "First aired" date appears in all the listings for other shows that I can identify as being "new". I've attached pictures from American Idol, Touch, and also the screen from pressing the "Info" button during Inside Edition, the show that was on at the time I took the pictures. These shows have not aired previously.
Am I missing something here? Has TiVo been like this forever, or is this new with the new update? I guess it's not a big deal once you understand that the dates are always wrong, but why must they be wrong?
