TV Schedule and Recording

Why do re-run shows show as New and why do 1 hr episodes show as 3 hrs in the guide?

This causes records set to New Only to record reruns and a real mess with the "extended" episodes.

Example: History Channel, Counting Cars 1/14/18 9:00AM - 12:00PM

I would think that a company the size of Comcast would have he resources to do a better job than this.

Re: TV Schedule and Recording

It's because the providers of that information are not controlled by Comcast.  It's like if you look at TVGuide on the web, they get their information from a third source; they have no control over what that third party is providing them.
