American Idol DVR warning from Scientific-Atlanta - Shown as re-run in IPG

Dear DVR Subscriber,

It has just been brought to our attention that the providers of the program information in your interactive program guide have labeled tonight's and tomorrow's episodes of "American Idol" as re-runs when, in fact, they are first run episodes. So, if you've set up your DVR to record first-run only episodes of American Idol, it will not be recorded tonight or tomorrow night.

To ensure that these episodes are recorded, you will need to manually schedule each of them again by time or by program name for tonight and tomorrow night.

If you have any friends or neighbors who are not members of the Explorer eClub, you might want to let them know about this.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Sincerely,

Scientific-Atlanta

I was so glad i got that email from SA because i would have missed Monday and Tuesday's episodes and i was able to set both nights to record. However, the Wednesday show was also must have been labeled as a re-run because it didn't record, and since they only mentioned Monday and Tuesday i didn't think to also check the Wednesday show. Luckily the DVR was still on the correct channel and was buffering the show when i got home halfway through it so i was able to initiate a recording and got it all.

Leave it to SA to still screw things up :D
