Check your recordings.

Went to start watching CSI 45 minutes into the recording and it's still
Survivor. Rather than screw around, I just extended my Without a Trace
recording to make sure it contains both Without a Trace and CSI.

I changed mine from DC local to CBS West. I hope that's enough.

Wel, it was, but it didn't matter. According to the Futon Critic, CBS
ran the new CSI, but subbed a rerun of "Without a Trace" out west and
pre-empted it in the east. I guess that, when the episode "The Bogie
Man" does finally run a week or two from now, the TiVo won't pick it up
because it will think it's a rerun. A WishList ought to backstop it.

Yet another example of the networks truly showing how little their care
about the viewers.

Jesus, dude, it was a Presidential address, not a network conspiracy.

If the networks didn't care about the viewers, the scheduled episode
would have aired on the West coast.

A simple fix for the problem... change the Season pass option to record ALL
with duplicates until the rescheduled Without A Trace episode airs.

Well, he's probably overreacting some about this incident, but I have to
agree with him on some scheduling choices. The whole
not-starting-on-the-half-hour-so-we-overlap-with-other-station's-shows
thing is incredibly rude and annoying, and really gains them little.

The new Without a Trace is supposed to show Wednesday at 9 pm, but Tivo
still hasn't updated the schedule - I put in a manual recording just to
make sure, since there's only one more update scheduled between now and
then.

The DirecTV DVR program guide now has the correct episode info
for tomorrow's delayed broadcast of Without A Trace.

It was a "trickle" update since it didn't appear there earlier today.
