FYI EIT and DataDirect do in fact change the title back and forth
if the EIT's title and DataDirect's title disagree. This is one of
the things we're working on fixing in the EIT branch. This is not
a new problem however, it has been like this since EIT was first

This can cause lost recordings if you schedule a program using either
the EIT or DataDirect title, and then it gets changed by the other
listings source before the program is to be recorded.

The workaround is to use only one listings data source per channel.
