I used the game finder app to record the Tigers/Indians ball game.
It recorded channel 152 MLB Baseball from 7-11 PM.
The guide description says New York Yankees vs. Tampa Bay Rays; or Detroit Tigers at Cleveland Indians.

The actual game turned out to be the Yankees and Rays.
Fortunately, I discovered this when I got home tonight so I am able to record the replay of the game on channel 412-21 from midnight to 4 AM.

This is another example where incorrect guide info caused a problem.
My Indians are on a winning streak.

Game finder uses the Search function which is not reliable. It appears to schedule the first channel it finds that is showing your team. In my case I ended up with an unwatchable SD recording from a Spanish language channel rather than the US HD version I was expecting.
