Conflicts -- am I doing it wrong?

    Hey gang --

    I have to confess I really don't understand whether this:


    ...is something I'm doing wrong, or just something TiVo does.

    The thing is that in the case of all three shows, TiVo is still recording all new episodes, so there actually are no conflicts.

    For the HBO shows, the very first time it airs is being recorded. For Diva, there is a conflict the first time it airs, but a later airing of the same episode (1 am the next morning) is recording. The TiVo also does the same pretty much every day on a M-F news show -- the original airing at 6 pm PDT records, but if the tuners are all busy for the 9 pm rerun, it shows as a "conflict" even though it wouldn't record the rerun anyway.

    All of my season passes (except for a few SyFy/BBCA Canadian/UK shows) are set to New Only, Keep 10, Keep Until Space Needed. Is there something I am doing that is causing the SP list to show there are conflicts, or is this just something the TiVo does? I would love a separate list showing "episodes that will really, truly never ever record" because this way showing of "conflicts" doesn't help me that much.

    (In happier news -- GoT is finally back on my todo list! Yay!)

    The reason it shows a conflict for the HBO show is because there is a conflict for a later airing. The problem is caused by the TiVo checking all conflicts before it checks the 28 day rule.

    I would not worry unless it's missing some episodes. It just says that because SOME of the airings conflict with other SPs that are higher up in the order. But it doesn't mean that you will be missing any.

    The only ones I am concerned about are network shows. Network shows don't have multiple airings like cable shows so I always put my network shows at the top of the SP pecking order. So, if you are seeing conflicts on THOSE you need to move them up. The cable shows should take care of themselves because there are multiple airings from which to choose.

    Yeah, I have my SP's arranged network, then basic cable, then pay cable last. It's just weird to see "conflicts" when everything is indeed recording.
