recording NBC Saturday news

We program to record NBC evening news on KGW  but cannot get Saturday, Saturday news is at 6pm, weekday it is at 5:30.

I have attempted to record it while running with checking all episodes but it fails.

What is the fix for this failure?

Is it called something different on Saturdays compared to weekdays?

Does the guide say that the Saturday episodes are going to be recorded? (You can also check the "Scheduled" list to see what will be recorded.)

If not, I suggest that you find a Saturday news broadcast in the guide and set up a separate repeated recording for that, and see what happens.

To expand: The scheduler does not use an actual title to set a recording. It uses an internal ID code. A program can change their title, but it can still record. In your case, there could be the same title in the guide, but it is actually a different ID code. Go to record options and see if it just says record or 'record options'. If it just says record, then it's not a recognized ID code and you need to create a separate series recording.
