    Shows not in search does not matter, still groups fine with the new seriesId

    Shows currently airing do not group with old (does not group at all) or new (groups with themselves) seriesId.

    Thanks. I was hoping it might give us some insight in what they did, but it doesn't look like it.

    I wonder what would happen if you pushed a show with a series ID for something set to record but it doesn't have any current recordings. I wonder if the recording would then group with what you already pushed.

    Pushes always generate unique seriesIds. You can't match existing seriesIds if you try. This is different from pulls, where what you specify as "seriesId" is what actually ends up on the TiVo. In a push, when you give pyTivo a seriesId, it just passes that on as the source ID (an arbitrary unique string) to mind.tivo.com, which does with it what it will. You should get back the same seriesId for the same source ID each time, but that's the extent of our control of the process.

    I noted in the other thread (and I think earlier in this one) that someone mentioned needing to delete the shows in the recently deleted folder as well. I wonder if the 28 days time (or whatever the purge time is for seriesId) starts after the shows roll-out of the trash? i.e. are shows in the recently deleted treated as being in the NPL for tracking seriesId.

    I am contemplating possibly waiting on doing too much with regards to redoing seriesId until the full roll-out. It seems like minor changes are many times made between the priority roll-out and regular. Perhaps this one will be fixed?

    In regards to the lack of control with seriesId/grouping with recorded programs, it's too bad that more information isn't released by Tivo. Amazon can group their programs in its own folder as well as the standard folder for a program. It is obviously possible.
