    We've had a season pass to AI since the beginning of the season, but tonight (May 3) we see that it's not getting recorded - there are no conflicts and nothing else has changed. Any hints why season pass shows don't get recorded? Or did Fox do a deal with Tivo to kill recordings?

    Yes, check the recording history (first item in the to do list), which the vast majority of the reason will tell you a good reason why it wasn't recorded.. ("no signal", a higher priority program was recorded, etc..)

    Once in a while it will give you a bogus reason (and I'd consider that a bug), but the recording history page is very valuable, IMHO.

    I guess it's possible someone could pay off Tribune to manipulate their guide data so that DVRs wouldn't automatically record a certain show.
    Of course, their efforts would be thwarted by OCD people who double check their to do list to make sure their favorite show is going to record.

    Obligatory "Your TiVo has good taste" joke...

    But seriously... maybe it was marked as a rerun by mistake in the guide for your area? The "to-done" list will say why it didn't record.

    Try looking at the quoted post while NOT logged in to the forum. On my system, at least, the words "favorite show" are turned into a link in red type and clicking on it pops up a Windows ad. Wow, making new progress in yet more annoying ads! And the ad content doesn't even relate to the idea of a "favorite show".
