    I recently pulled the plug on my beloved and faithful Series 2, and replaced with with a Premiere which I'm generally pleased with.

    The ONE feature I REALLY LIKED on the Series 2 was a Guru Guide I setup years ago for AFI Top 100 Movies. It was like a Season Pass and any time one of those great films came on it was automatically recorded.

    I cannot find anything like that on the Premiere. If I go into collections I get to the "AFI 100" but it doesn't offer a Season Pass option, just shows which films are currently "available."

    Is my Guru Gone for Good?

    They're not called Guru Guides any more, they're called collections, but they're still there. Check the Browse section.

    Thanks for the quick response.

    I am feeling *really* lame.

    I did: "Browse TV & Movies"
    Then: "Collections"
    Then "AFI's Top 100"

    which opens a screen showing 11 AFI categories (Top 100, Top 10 Animation, etc.)

    If I select "Top 100"
    that opens a screen showing 15 individual (and great) films.

    What I'm missing is how to get the AFI Top 100 to always record automatically, week after week, like a Season Pass.

    That was the beauty of the Guru Guide. Each week the new AFI 100 would be automatically recorded, in a single folder.

    So close to the solution ... but I am obviously missing the magic decoder button on my peanut remote.

    He said he found it under "collections" but there is no "get this collection" option.
    Several other "collections" also lack that option.

    Bingo!

    Thanks ... I had not seen the "Record this Collection" elsewhere, so didn't know it existed.

    And ... apparently ... it doesn't exist for the AFI collections.

    A shame, but now I know it's not there and to stop looking.

    Thanks again for the clue.

    I thought the "record this collection" was available for all of them. I didn't realize it was hit and miss like that.
