Default 121: Tesla's Death Ray - faulty SBR setup

Saw this in today's newsletter;

Tesla's Death Ray.jpg

The first episode from 21:00 to 22:00 is a SBR, which option I selected.
The presumed second episode (titled as belonging to the series but not labelled as E2) from 22:00 to 23:00 is being ignored by the SBR.
The online guide reveals that a third episode is on on the next Tuesday from 21:00 to 22:00, but is labelled as S1E2.
There's no 4th episode at 22:00 on Tues. the 13th.

The aggregator again?

EDIT: I see the 2nd slot discussed is labelled as "Special" instead of as an episode. So if not directly related to the series structure itself, shouldn't it rather be the last one shown? And made part of the SBR anyway?

'Tesla's Death Ray: A Murder Declassified (Special)' is a standalone special that is not part of the series, called 'Tesla's Death Ray: A Murder Declassified'. That is why the former is being ignored. Unfortunately, as the two are different types of programme (special and series), the Explora does not automatically record the other. This is how the channel has supplied the schedule, we cannot change that.

S1E2 is not the third episode because of the fact noted above.

The fourth episode does air.

Here is a breakdown of the series:

Season 1
1 Mad Scientist On Long Island Tues 06/2 9pm
2 Search For The Lost Lab Tues 13/2 9pm
3 A Suspect In Serbia Tues 20/2 9pm
4 In Hitler's Crosshairs Tues 27/2 9pm
5 Episode 5 Tues 06/3 9pm

Please remember that dates and times are subject to change.

I should have mentioned that the query (the later understood edit) was directed more at the channel.

(I've set a MR for the related non-series program, so that if things do still change I can see what's happening.)
