Not Listed means you use "this showing" rules instead of "anytime" rules 
and the time changed.  (Or, perhaps you used "this channel" rules and 
the channel callsign changed?)  By re-saving the rule, you're updating 
it with the current channel/time info.

Generally, you want to always use "anytime" rules if at all possible, 
because a broadcaster's changing a start time by even a minute after you 
create a "this showing" rule will prevent a recording from occurring.  
Also, FWIW, I always use "any channel" rules so they always work 
regardless of what happens with my channels.
