I've also noticed an increase in the amount of time Tivo's guide is showing R when it's actually new
. As others have pointed out the OAD(original air date) shows the program as todays date so I guess if I were recording these shows as a Season Pass
event, things would be fine. The problem is with shows like Fallon, Kimmel, Craig, and Leno I don't use a Season Pass or even a Wishlist search but rather manually look at the guide page to decide if I want to record them. I immediately look over the ones listed as R but what caught my attention was programs this year were showing up as R but had a year date of 2013(the year shows up in the guide screen but not OAD). Since we are only a few days into the new year I knew it couldn't already be a R with a date of 2013. This got me into looking at the OAD which indeed showed todays date even though the previous screen showed a R
So I guess until this gets straightened out I can't just rely on the R but must do the hassle of going into the info screen to see the OAD. The way I look at the guide this is NOT very convenient. Currently while watching something like the news I bring up the guide and manually move through the guide for each night, to see the OAD I need to push REC followed by INFO which takes me out of the news I might be watching in the background of my guide! To make matters worse, if I'm time delay watching the news when I get back from the INFO screen it automatically takes me back to the current time or live TV.
