ESPN just updated the guide to show Sportscenter with Scott Van Pelt (it used to just be Sportscenter and you needed to know it came on at 9 PM Pacific).
I tried to set up a series recording, but it won't accept the series. Have tried doing it through the guide, through search, etc. Is it possible that ESPN won't allow a series recording, or is this a database issue. It seems I had a similar issue on Comedy Central some time ago with The Nightly Show.
A manual timer is an option, of course, but the SVP version of Sportscenter moves around every once in a while (plus, the whole point of the DVR is to automate!).
