UPDATE:

Looks like they flipped again. The show name as been changed back to

"American Idol" with episode name of "The Road to Hollywood"


You should make the appropriate changes (if needed)

Mon 02/02 8:00p- 9:00p FOX American Idol "The Road to Hollywood"


UPDATE:

As mentioned below by SSFan, there is a special American Idol episode

just added for Mon 2/2. It won't show up in many Replay Guides until

Sunday, but Replay guide servers have the change already (verified with

clear channel guide and net connect)


The title is "American Idol: Road to Hollywood" instead of "American Idol"


You *will need to* create a new single record Replay Channel to get this

episode recorded as they changed the title of the show (as opposed to

leaving the title "American Idol" and adding an episode description)


If you created an "American Idol" theme using the channel guide entry,

it also will *not* record this episode, as those themes are exact title

matches. However if you manually created a theme titled "American Idol"

that will record as it uses partial match semantics.

Mon 02/02 8:00p- 9:00p FOX American Idol: Road to Hollywood


--


This is for Wed 2/4 (in *2 weeks*)


American Idol Wednesday edition is showing up 8:30-9:30 instead of

regular 8-9pm slot.

Wed 02/04 8:30p- 9:30p FOX American Idol


Possible conflicts include:

The Apprentice (R), West Wing, The Bachelorette, Star Trek Enterprise,

Jake 2.0 (R), Smallville, Angel


The Apprentice isn't really a conflict since they switched it to Thu nights,

but if you have the Wed Replay Channel sitting around without setting

to First Run, it might cause problems. Similar with Jake 2.0

In today's episode of the American Idol, they said there is going to be three episodes next week--Mon, Tue, and Wed. My channel guide is current and I can see the Tue and Wed shows but I do not see the Idol show scheduled for Monday (2/2/04). Anyone has the same problem?

Since it is showing up in zap2it.com there is a 99% chance it'll show up

in your guide by Sunday night's net connect.


Since the show name is the same, your current Replay Channel for

American Idol should pick it up (once the ch guide is updated), as

long as you have it set to record Mon-Wed 8-9pm.


If you are really worried, try 243-zones "clear channel guide" followed

by 243-zones "net connect" and you should get a full channel guide

download, but I wouldn't waste the time and effort because you'll get

a bunch of replay channel warning messages. Just wait it out and it

should show up. If it doesn't I'm sure someone will post a warning.

Title for American Idol special episode on 2/2 is different from standard

"American Idol". You will likely need to take action to record it. First post

updated with details.

I bail on 'idol after the auditions. Looks like they're dragging this one out longer.


Thanks for the update sfhub.

But with replay, who cares if they drag it out... I simply COULD NOT watch this program with(OUT) a Replay :) (edited).......


Is it me, or has anyone else noticed that whilst these audition were extremely FUNNY, there was also far more padding. i.e. we didn't get to see that many auditions or they were rolled over and over. It wasn't in my mind, that much last year...

I think you meant you could not watch it withOUT a replay?


I agree, way too much filler. I get through the whole show in about 30 minutes...I'd never hold up if I had to sit through all the commercials and filler.

FOX changed the show name back to "American Idol", suggest making

the appropriate changes (if needed)

Bump, this happens today.


See the last section of original post. American Idol has a special

8:30p-9:30p time slot tonight.


Lots of potential conflicts.
