    In central time zone, so Modern Family & Mixology were on between 8-9.

    Yes, there were five other channels recording between 8-9PM. Three people using the Roamio with very different interests in TV shows. Using all six tuners sometimes on Thursdays and Sundays too.

    I have had the Not Recorded and the reason Power Lost for the last 2 months since The Amazing Race came back. I always record the Amazing Race Sunday nights on CBS at 8pm and use the Max padding so + 3.5 hours because it has gone over that far in past years due to foot ball.

    I also record The Mentalist at 10:00 PM every Sunday on CBS and ever since the Amazing Race has been recording it has not recorded The Mentalist due to Power Lost. I didn't realize I was even missing The Mentalist until the end of March when I saw it in the history not recorded. So I ended up watching all of March on CBS.com website. Then the next week the same thing happened. I realized at that point that ooo its on my padding. So now I can just watch it on the Amazing Race padding.

    But this is some kind of bug or software glitch. I hope they figure it out.

    What I have been doing to record the good wife, mentalist, is set to record normal for good wife and add only padding to the last recording to take care of any network sports shows in the afternoon. Never missed an episode. Having the padding on the last show, there are no more recordings that I make late nite, so no interference.

    That's works until the day the Mentalist isn't on, then you're sol on Good Wife.

    Hey! I just got the commercials removed from a Doctor Who episode I recorded which overlapped another one (adjacent programs on BBC America). At last there were no audio glitches now that I'm running the new update on the TiVo, so at least this one glitch does seem to be fixed.

    Now if they could only fix the glitch I always get when I'm watching live TV and a recording on that same channel starts. Maybe they could use one of the other 5 tuners for the recording versus live TV...

    It wasn't "fixed". They removed the code whereby the TiVo was only using one tuner for overlapping recordings on the same channel. It is back to using separate tuners.

    The glitch doesn't happen. That means it is fixed. With 6 tuners, it was idiotic to even try to put in complicated code to share one tuner. There are thousands of things I'd put higher on the priority list - I don't have any idea why anyone was even working on that code in the first place.

    :rolleyes: I see. So TiVo should ask you what their priorities should be, based on your setup and requirements, rather than trying to implement a feature people have been asking for pretty much since the beginning. What I don't understand, is why you bothered to post since anyone who has been paying attention already knew that it had been "fixed". BTW, the video glitch was the least of the problems with this feature.

    As far as it being fixed, that is like my saying they could fix all of the problems with the Netflix app by removing it. After all, I don't use it.

    I disagree.

    I will agree that it is _LESS_ important than when there were only 1 or 2 tuners, but I still would greatly appreciate a working version of this feature.

    Yes, I could put different recordings on different Tivos, but I'm one who would prefer fewer Tivos (and SP lists), so I still do get apparently one clipping issue on late night recordings sometimes (I think some of the late night shows have been in reruns lately, so it wasn't happening last week)... Since I record the various late night shows, it's a lot of recordings.

    I realize this will likely be less of a problem end of this year and next year (Ferguson & Letterman go byebye).
