    I have my Season Pass Manager choices set to record only NEW episodes...yet, TiVo is recording all episodes, even repeated episodes. I only wAnt to record the shows with the yellow NEW badge in the guide.

    Is there a remedy for that?

    This is the result of a new TiVo. If you look, all the "old" episodes that are recording will have an original air date within the last 28 days. If you search the forum for "28 day rule," you can read more on it. After a month, this will stop and you will only get truly new to you recordings.
