    Most of my local network shows are not showing "new". it's stating that the original air date is 1/10/12, but today is 1/11 and these shows are indeed new (they were not on yesterday).

    Any ideas what is going on?

    Thanks.

    Weird. After my update, all my shows, even the ones that I already watched were labeled as "NEW".

    Yeah.. odd.

    I looked at tomorrow's shows that all say new, but the original air date is today. So my bet is that tomorrow all those new shows will not show new.

    My husband said it recorded an old "Wheelers and Dealers", but failed to record the new one.

    grrrr.

    All my shows are recording as scheduled. I don't think it messes with the To-Do List.

    They are not appearing with New tags in the guide, but are tagged as new in My Shows.

    Still very odd. I'll call them when I get a chance to see why it shows the previous dates air date as well as removing the "new" label on the current date.

    none of the new ABC shows were marked as new in our program guide last night. (Housewives, PanAM).

    The NEW tags are very buggy. Sometimes just scrolling down and back up to the top of My Shows makes the tags re-appear. And in the Guide, some shows lose their new tags when its close to air time, while others do not.

    Cool feature idea, but needs to be debugged a lot to make it reliable.

    Fortunately it appears to be the visble tags, not the first-run functionality that is buggy.

    I'm curious if you folks are just seeing (or not seeing) the "new" tag after 20.2 but the "to do list" is OK? meaning that the content will in fact record?

    I ask this because I have not gotten 20.2 yet and over the past couple days I've noticed that episodes of a number of different programs for which I have a season pass (first run) are not properly setting them to record. I'm having to go in and check every particular program and manually tell it to "record this episode also".

    So the question is really more of is the guide metadata wrong, or is it something else? One example was "Lost Girl" (new show). This weeks episode would not record even though it should. There are a number of others. If this isn 't the same issue, I'll start another thread.

    You need to set new & repeats for some shows that air elsewhere before airing in America.

    Maybe its a time-zone thing. Is everyone seeing this problem, or just folks on the West Coast?

    I noticed that in the guide, shows that appear without NEW tags say that the "original air date" was a day EARLIER than the current date. Not sure how that would be a time-zone thing, but just grasping at straws.

    Either way, a fix would be nice.

    What? Are you kidding me? The guide shows they are first run. Zap2it shows they are first run. The series is brand new - never been seen before.

    Beyond that, are we Tivo users supposed to somehow research where in the world a specific episode may possibly have been run before in order to decide how to configure season passes? What exactly then is the use of the "first run" setting? What about the fact that even futoncritic, which has no concept of where in the country I am but it shows an episode of first run?

    This issue is still going on. For some reason, the new series "Lost Girl" seems to be uncommonly vulnerable more than others. I've never seen this consistent failure in this manner before, but at this point it's happened frequently enough that I no longer trust my season passes and have to manually check every single days recordings in advance because the Tivo is not properly recording content.

    I'm in the east. No, it's not a time zone thing.

    What does your Guide say after "First Aired" for the next episode of "Lost Girl"?

    Check the "First Aired' on Zap2it

    Sorry, I totally disagree with you. What my Tivo guide says is that it is not a repeat. There is no "R" for repeat for the first airing of each episode. There IS an "R" for subsequent viewings of those episodes. It is a new series, never before having been seen in this country - and if you did not research the actual show, you would assume that it has never been seen anywhere. Furthermore, on Futoncritic, it shows as new episodes - and NOT as previously aired.

    The value of the Tivo service is that you DON'T have to heavily research to determine this stuff. If you're creating a season pass and don't want repeats, then select "First Run". It's that easy. It has previously always worked that way. For several new shows, it has not worked that way.

    If viewers need to go and research "First Aired" dates on Zap2it rather than looking for new episodes, the value of Tivo has been significantly reduced. For the record, the Verizon Fios Motorola HD DVR did NOT have a problem recording the same content. As crazy as it sounds, it seems as though the Tivo logic is at least in this case inferior to the Verizon/Moto logic.

    What are you disagreeing with? I didn't say it was right, just explaining why.

    Tivos do not, and never have, use[d] the HUMAN READABLE text in the program descriptions.
