    Did anyone else have their HD-DVR miss recording Futurama tonight? This isn't the first time this has happened for me and I'm inclined to believe that Comedy Central messed something up in their guide data as they often do but I wanted to see if anyone else had this problem.

    I got it.

    Here's what happened:
    Lela gets arrested for being a mutant and banished to the sewer. The crew (except Bender) gets sent there for harboring a mutant. They realize it sucks there and Lela starts a fight for equal rights.

    They win and the mutants can now live on the surface.

    That's why I was reading the forums. Futurama was set to record first runs and noticed last night that the new show was not set to record then but three days later even though there was no conflict. Just received the latest update for HR20-700 this week. I don't know if this is new to this release or if things like this have happened before and I just didn't notice it.

    I'll have to check mine when I get home, but if it misses the same episode will come on next week right before the new ones.

    Ok, well, I'm glad it wasn't just me. I have a feeling Comedy Central messed up their guide data. If they get that "original air date" wrong, it won't record when setup for first run only.

    Sherman...
    Looked like a slight difference in the listing data for both showings: the Thursday showing didn't have the "HD" icon next to the title, whereas the Monday showing does. (My DVR also wanted to record Monday's -- I had to specifically tell it to record the Thursday showing.)

    Same here. The reason was that it was already scheduled to record. Very odd.
