Strange missed recording?

#1

I just sat down to watch tonight's Seahawks game which should have recorded as part of a Thursday Night Football series I have set. Instead, it recorded a different channel, started at the wrong time and the duration was too short as well. The series setting is for "any channel" and the recording history shows that it thinks it did record Thursday Night Football. I wish there was a way to go back in the guide and figure out how this happened.

It happened because of bad guide data provided by Rovi.

If you really want to see old guide data you can use Remote Potato, it allows you to go back and see past days guide data, but I think only if the garbage collection that normally occurs every 5 days has not happened yet.
