Embed a series code Why don’t they just embed a series code with each listing? For example: The Simpson’s mon-fri on fox at 5:00 p.m. let’s give it code number 00001 The Simpson’s every Sunday at 5:30 p.m. lets give this code number 00002 The Simpson’s every Sunday at 7:00 p.m. lets give this code number 00003 This way if you just want to record the Simpson’s on the Sunday 7:00p.m. time slot on Sunday that’s all you will get. This would also help when fox decides to randomly changes the scheduling. Like say they move it to 7:30 one week. It will still get the recording. Because 00003 would still be the series code. I think this would be the most simplistic error free way to do it. And when you add a series it could tell you the regular air dates. You could still make everything look the same on the surface but it would perform much more efficiently. So why not do it?
