I have had unscheduled "marathon" recordings of Mythbusters, American Guns, American Chopper, Dirty Jobs, Dual Survival & Sons of Guns... often with the incorrect title for the show (multiple recordings of Sons of Guns that are listed as Deadliest Catch episodes, and multiple episodes of Dual Survival and American Gun listed as American Chopper). Deadliest Catch and American Chopper are in my series schedule as "new only", but several old episodes have been recorded. Dirty Jobs recorded several episodes just yesterday (listed as Dirty Jobs) but this has never been a scheduled series for me.
I have also had a few (but significantly less) issues with NBC programming... recording the The Voice in error at least twice (one listed as The Voice... the other listed as The Firm, which is a scheduled series for me) and there was at least one other NBC error that occurred in both systems as well - I think it was a repeat episode of Harry's Law that recorded when it also is set for New Only.
The majority of these recordings have occurred in the past two weeks, but they have been happening in BOTH Navigator/8640 and WMC7/HDHR. WMC does not rely on anything from TWC as far as guide and recording schedule is concerned. Either they both get their guide data from the same third party service that has bad data, or Discovery has put out bad information to multiple service. Specifically what is wrong I cannot say... but it cannot be a Navigator or TWC specific issue. There has to be a common error further up the guide data stream.
