I didn't see anyone notice, but the description for League of Extraordinary Gentleman is definitely wrong. Maybe something funking is going on with your receiver? Or could be just screwy guide data.

I agree that if you block something it shouldn't show up in the guide, regardless if a channel is added to that blocked range. Although if this is the biggest worry you've had this week. Id say your still having a pretty good week compared to most :grin:

*edit* just noticed curts explaination.

Go back and read the title of the show again...the description is correct. It's the documentary called "A League of Ordinary Gentlemen". It's about the pro bowlers tour which went from big money and big TV ratings in the 60s and 70s to almost nothing.

Is that really called for? Not everyone has the same interests. The great thing about this board is that people are free to express opinions and report issues without fear of being ridiculed for their programming tastes. Grow up.


Well thank god this got resolved. I'd hate to think that there were any kids with permanent emotional scars over a few words on a channel quide.
