    That should only come into play when setting up a new SP. It's also what allows an FRO SP to work on some imports as long as they air in the U.S. within 28 days of their OAD.

    I had "new SPs" in my original post, then removed it, because I wasn't 100% sure, and went with "under certain circumstances" and "sometimes".

    Thanks for the clarification (about as clear as it can get, since some things are still hit and miss).

    I've seen an influx of people who just set up their new TiVo and want to know why they are getting repeats. I really wish TCF would add a "search within TCF using Google" option. Even I can't find what I'm looking for here, without using Google to search within TCF, the manual way... A prime example of topic duplication on TCF is anything to do with MoCA/PoE filters. I get mad that people ask a question that has been answered 30+ times (sometimes by me), only to find I can't find those answers quickly and easily within the forum...

    Just to clarify, when you're talking about the "NEW" tag do you mean the guide data / upcoming episode data includes a "new" tag, or do you mean the "new" tag that TiVo (sometimes) puts next to recorded shows in the now playing list?

    It looks like everyone has been talking about the former (which isn't under TiVo's control; that, like all the guide data, is provided directly from Tribune). But based on your wording I thought you might be talking about the later.

    (Though I'm not sure what logic TiVo uses to flag recordings as "new" is Now Playing; so I still can't really answer your question)

    No, it isn't. It's based on data (the OAD) received from TMS. The "NEW" tag in the guide and upcoming episode list is generated by the TiVo when the OAD is the same as the showing date. If the rerun of an episode occurs before Midnight of the day of the initial showing, it will be flagged in the guide as "NEW".

    Oops. I was mentally getting it mixed up with the "R" (for repeat airing) text that Tribune includes in their guide data. :eek:

    Yeah, the "R" flag is for informational purposes only. The TiVo scheduler ignores it, which is a good thing.
