I’m not good at searching the database, but I did look at the recording rules and they all look good, but a number of programs are off season now.  However, there is a program that I was recording last winter that is starting up 12/30/2018 and it still shows correctly in the Upcoming list.

So I don’t think I have a problem, it’s just looks a little weird.
