    That's CNN for you. You really gotta stay on top of things if you want to get your show. Even more so when there are major braking news stories that get full, wall to wall coverage.

    Thread bump!

    I had an SP on my TiVoHD and recorded the episode on the 12th for Buenos Aires (S7 E8). When I checked the recording, the start of it was coverage of the Pulse massacre so I just deleted the recording without looking through it. :(

    I had been able to pick up some other recordings from Season 7 that got deleted before I could watch them by streaming them on the Roamio with Comcast's VOD.

    But there's no sign of a repeat of the Buenos Aires episode -- either for recording, or on VOD. (I searched both on the Roamio directly, and with kmttg.) I don't see any upcoming episodes in the next two weeks -- the only S7 episodes available are from VOD.

    CNN's new site is a hot mess, so I have no idea where to find info about changes in their schedule. I see some clips for the Buenos Aires episode on the show page, but nothing seems to be marked as the full episode.

    I suspect it was the last episode of the season, and CNN is just going to move on to their newer shows.

    Not important in the grand scheme of things -- it's only TV. Just wanted to drop in a note here in case someone else spots a repeat.

    You could "just" have your Tivo record all, including repeats.. Then after the ~28 day no re-recording thing, it'll record the episode again.. (I'm presuming you don't actually pick Everything and get duplicates.)

    and/or you could View Upcoming every once in a while to catch the missed episode..

    If on a newer Tivo, you could even change your OnePass to start with this season, to get fewer unwanted told shows.

    I should do this "record all episodes" thing, but like Jan, I think they are moving onto their new set of shows. Maybe eventually it will come back. Probably just before the next season of "Parts Unknown" airs later on in the Fall

    I'm pretty sure I've seen CNN repeat shows like this endlessly.. I think I caught one or a few eps of the Morgan Spurlock CNN show many months later. There's also some CNN documentary series I record then sometimes nuke for space reasons, then they come back.

    and on other channels, the various Naked & Afraids and Cutthroat Kitchen episodes rerun all the time. So I changed those to New & Reruns too, and go nuke a bunch sometimes..

    I'm not quite going back on my no-rerun stance in general, but reruns of a show from the same cable network haven't been noticeably cut down (as opposed to e.g. broadcast network shows having MANY minutes cut out for syndication).
