Once again Myth says Blue Bloods, showing this evening, is already
recorded.  Something odd is going on. Is this a schedulesdirect problem?

Tonight's episode title is "Nightmares".

There are 2 earlier recordings with that same tile, Nightmares, and
nearly the same description.  However, those earlier recordings have
different content when played.  Recordings were on 10/26 and 11/2.
The 10/26 shows original airdate 10/26, type=series (EP01280105) Series,
program ID= EP012801050049, last recorded=11/2.  No episode number I

The one recorded on 11/2 has episode number 307; original airdate 11/2,
same series, same program id, last recorded 11/2.

Episode to be recorded has episode number 307; original airdate 11/9,
same seies and program id, Find ID 735181.
