Series/Episode missing

Post by GGRussell » Tue Jul 09, 2019 5:38 pm

Trying to record an old TV series 'Alien Nation'. The guide doesn't have Series or Episode numbers. How does HDHomeRun know if it is a different episode?

It probably doesn't. What channel are you seeing that on? I'm not seeing that series airing on any channel on your devices. I only see the movie of the same name on one of the Starz channels.

Starz Encore -- I thought it was the series. According to Wikipedia , there were several movies , too. How can tell what is actually airing?

It's the movie... other movies would be titled "alien nation:subtitle" the series would be a series with the same title (would have different graphic if it was actually on anywhere, and also have a different Original date, though I think the only thing you would see in app is the graphic and episode information).

By the way, unless such has already passed and I somehow missed it, when I checked not long after jasonl's post, I only saw it listed as airing on the Starz Encore Espanol channel when searching on the Starz site.
