    I have a season pass for Halt and Catch Fire, set up for new shows only. Last nights episode recorded three times, at 10 PM, 11 PM and 2 AM this morning. WTF! I thought Tivo wouldn't record a second showing if you have it on your DVR, or recorded it within the last 28 days. Any ideas why this happened.

    Sounds like it had generic show data, so it wasn't able to tell from the schedule that it was the same show. TiVo goes with the worst possibility if it doesn't have good guide info, figuring users will be much less upset if a show gets recorded twice (or three times) than if it gets missed.

    Proper operation depends on the guide data being correct. What you are seeing has been known to happen on some shows.

    Mine only recorded the "Giant" episode once. Either your guide data or SP settings were somehow different. My recording History shows the others as duplicate / not recorded.

    It wasn't generic data. All three shows had same show episode "Giant", same description, same actors, and original air date of 7/13/14.

    First thing that came to mind was my Tivo rebooted during the recording twice, but all three times were recorded in its entirety. This is the first time this has happened to me.

    I've had a number of cases where my Roamio has repeatedly recorded the same episode - with full guide data each time, not generics.
