PVR Recordings-Titles Changing?? This is weird...I go to my recordings and the list of things I’ve PVR’d are there...and I will notice that sometimes the titles will change. At first I just caught this out of the corner of my eye and I thought it was me...but I’ve noticed it a few times now. For example...I PVR’d Trading Spaces...when I went to my recordings a few minutes ago the title of the Trading Spaces episode said ‘An MRI for Larry’ but within seconds it changed to ‘The Carpenters Strike Back’...does this happen to anyone else? (An MRI for Larry was a Long Island Medium episode title...from awhile ago (which I do not have in my PVR list) but the Trading Spaces episode recorded today .

Hi Lauralee,
That is a very odd issue, but I've actually had the same thing happen myself. In my case it happened most with the program Forged in Fire.  I'm not sure if it's only certain programs, channels or what causes it but I can assure you it doesn't affect the functionality of the PVR itself.  What I did was perform a system reboot through the menu on the PVR itself.  After that completed I haven't noticed it.  Not to say it isn't happening at all anymore, but infrequent enough that i don't notice it anymore.  Rest assured this little glitch is on our radar and we are looking into it to see if we can determine the cause but no luck as of yet.
It happens to me, frequently (actually, every day!!).  It doesn't matter the channel, or the show.  But often/usually, the title is from whatever show was on just before the show that I recorded.  For example, if I tape the news, it shows up with the title of whatever episode of whatever show was on just before the news.  Or, if I tape the show right after the news, then it comes up with a title reflecting the day/date of the newscast.

I don't consider it a big deal, just strange, so I didn't bother reporting it. But it has been going on for months - since the changeover of the guide to allow for restarting shows that have been on before.  (the new rewind feature, or whatever it was/is called)

That's a good point Anne.  I never really considered the timeline but I think your right, it did start around the time Rewind was introduced.  Knowing how the system works I can't really imagine how that feature could have caused this type of glitch.. but stranger things have happened.
