I'm frequently getting shows showing in my recording history as "This program will not be recorded because it is no longer in the program guide."

now, I may expect only 1-2 of these a month, but i'm getting several a week - Including repeat shows.

The only possible explanation, is that the people that schedule the shows are consistently / regularly telling Tivo that a programme is to be scheduled, & then a day or so later, changing the guide (after we update our EPG)

MAYBE an odd occurence ? with a person accidently typing in the incorrect show ?,

 but a named show that is not scheduled, & hasn't been on TV in 6 months, appearing on TIVo every week, or multiple times a week on a  regular basis - as a show thats not going to be recorded.

i don't believe any staff would tell Tivo of an incorrect show - on a regular basis. Must be a bug in Tivo.

(I hope this is clear)..

You're not alone, I've seen this too but not very often. I'm sure it's a bug but as bugs go doesn't disrupt the function of the unit so haven't given it any further consideration.
