Yes, I mentioned this earlier in the thread.
What *appears* to work is if you note the data/time of the episode you want, then go to the Guide, find that episode, then select "Record this airing" from the guide, and *don't* go back into the timers page. If you don't, it'll record. But if you do, that page will "reschedule" and remove your selection.
Thank you for confirming that this is indeed a bug and that I was not dreaming.
I also use that workaround to be able to manually set those recordings.
This guide is anything but 'smart' either. Tonight I had to manually tweak the recordings to be able to fit 6 shows that conflicted between from 8pm and 10pm.
Two of the shows did not have repeats (PBS) and the other four had repeats later in the evening, but because they had higher priority they took the timeslots and the PBS shows had no room.
If it was really 'smart' it would realize that the shows are on again at a later time and would change the schedule so everything would fit.
So piece of advice for you folks always make sure that your shows are taping.
I think the best option is to not use the option "record new episodes only".
That way it will allow the guide to pick the show at a later time without the "NEW" flag on it. Of course there will be ocasions where it will tape more episodes that you expected but at least you will have it recorded.
