    I've been unable to determine what Tivo uses for the 'new' logo. I see new on things all the time now, but the air date is not current.

    This new tivo has become so bad, the wife is begging me to switch back to MCE. Just ordered my HDHomerun.

    I'll have a Premeire and an HD box for sale soon. :-(

    Well, the "NEW" flags in the guide seems to be based on an OAD within 28 days of the date of the showing.

    As for the NPL - It appears to be set if the Recording date is within 28 days of the OAD. Or a missing OAD.

    As to the "Recently Deleted" group, I am unable to determine the criteria for that at all.

    I do not believe that your decision to sell your TiVos and order an HDHomerun is based on this minor annoyance, especially since it only manifests itself on the Premiere, and then only when using the HD menus.

    LOL, you're right- it's based on the WAF (wife acceptance factor). My wife now knows more about Tivo troubleshooting than I do. She dealt with the tuning adapter issues when they occured, the spontaneous reboots, etc. This is pretty much the last straw.

    You don't find it ridiculous that it labels a show as new because its less than a month old? I can also confirm that is not the only case - I've had numerous shows from 2011 (yeah, we're over 6 months from that year) that were listed as new.

    Also, how would that cause it to record ALL of the old episodes marked as new, but NOT the brand new with the current OAD?

    As for the HD guide - are you saying that this problem only occurs when using them? I haven't tried reverting to the standard guide to see if it corrects it, but I will. My statement was that the update that brought the hd guide is when these new bugs started.

    Don't get me wrong - I've been a loyal Tivo fan for years. With the capabilities it has and gains, along with forum developed apps like Pytivo - I've been a huge Tivo cheerleader. I prefer to have one box do everything, and Tivo has been able to do that for me.

    I can make excuses for spontaneous reboots (could be heat related), and even the tuning adapter (its time warners fault), but all the latest issues are soley on Tivo.

    Not recording first run episodes is a BUG, as is having all the old episodes tagged as new. I still laugh when my wife kept getting mad that the tivo was trying to record hard core porn, lol. She didn't find it funny, but I did. I found some thing on here that said that checking a TV-MA show could cause that - seriously? How does a broadcast show relate at all to hardcore porn? I still love the names when looking through the list, but I digress.

    Understood. One of the benefits of being on Comcast is no TA. Also minimal use of the no copy flag.

    If the episodes from 2011 are flagged as "NEW" in the guide and have an OAD and specific episode data, then I don't understand why. If they're flagged as "NEW" in the NPL(My Shows) and have specific episode data and an OAD that is not within 28 days of the recording date, again I don't understand.

    As far as it being set at all: In the guide, it is setting it based on the same criteria that an FRO SP uses. In the NPL, it is being set if the episode met this criteria when it was recorded.

    It shouldn't. Have you looked at the recording history to find out why that episode was not recorded?

    The original release of the HDUI guide had a different problem with the "NEW" flag. I suspect "fixing" that caused this new issue.

    Don't get me wrong. I am not happy with the TiVo s/w team. IMNSHO, for the last couple of years there have been too many instances of poor design, sloppy implementation, and insufficient testing.

    I agree it would be a BUG but I suspect there was some other reason for it's failure to record. Do you possibly have the SP set with KUID and a "Keep at most" limit that was reached recording the "old" episodes? Remember, an FRO SP will schedule any episode it thinks of as new that hasn't been previously scheduled. It will also schedule any episode which is missing the episode identifier.

    Probably not a bug. Design flaw maybe, since it is probably WAD.

    Turning off suggestions is the second thing I do when personalizing a new TiVo. The first thing I do is mute the sound effects.
