    1. Double check the generic description. (I think it might be "An ensemble cast performs sketch comedy")
    2. Make sure you set it to "First Run Only"

    I also just do a manual recording M-F 10pm - 11pm.

    I just delete the reruns and whatever it tapes on friday. Not a big deal.

    The OP here mentioned he has a wish for the Amazing Race. Does someone have this set up. If so, can you share the settings to only record new episodes of the new series...

    Also, if someone has a similar wish list for Big Brother... one that also excludes the morning show where the interview the previously kicked out person.

    Thanks,
    BOb

    OK, I am still getting duplicate Daily Show and Colbert Report. It appears that the have changed the guide so the repeats don't have the generic description any more. Has anyone come up with a wishlist setup that gets me 1 new daily show/cobert report a day since the guide change?

    Thanks in advance.

    See the earlier posts as to why...IIRC it has to do with the "post dating" of the shows; a Comedy Central issue. Mr. Tupper is working on it, but until they fix the date problem, it looks like we'll be using the delete button for a bit. :(

    Mr. Tupper is deleting extra shows like the rest of you. TiVo's apparently cannot handle future OADs. I'm just crossing my fingers that this is an isolated incident.

    Here's what I use:

    KEYWORD: - ELEVEN TEAMS OF TWO TRAVEL THE GLOBE
    KEYWORD: - REALITY REMIX
    TITLE KEYWORD: AMAZING RACE*
    CATEGORY: INTERESTS:REALITY

    I haven't tried it, but would picking 3 or 4 common words and adding them as optional entries filter out a blank description?

    Title Keyword: THE DAILY SHOW
    Keyword: -HUMOROUS SLANT
    Keyword: (a)
    Keyword: (the)
    Keyword: (in)
    Keyword: (and)

    Actually the best optional keyword would be a space, but I don't know if TiVo will allow that.

    Obviously it's tricky to pick a set of optional keywords that is guarenteed to show up in any description, but that's what you'd need to do.
    If none of them showed up then the description would be (assumed to be) blank and you'd want to skip recording it.

    Many of the new episodes have no words in the description at all.

    This problem should go away on its own after Monday.

    I just set up a daily, repeating manual record for one hour to catch both the daily show and Colbert seven days a week. Every now and then I delete either the weekend upcoming recordings (which are really going to be some other show) or the weekend past recordings (which were really some other show).

    Sorry, I don't watch BB. I do not know what the generic description is.

    It looks like this will solve my problem with TDS Season Pass. Thanks!

    Checking in for an update. Have not attempted the Tupper Method, but I wanted to know if still works or if there are still problems. This is the only Season Pass I really have problems with.

    The "Tupper Method" of recording the Daily Show and Colbert Report still works for me.

    The generic description for Late Night is: "Interviews and comedy sketches"

    I haven't had to use a generic description for Survivor. However, I have blocked some shows that have randomly popped up in my Survivor WL. Right now the only blocked title in my WL is "I SHOULDN*T BE ALIVE".

    Thanks.

    So, for Survivor you just have it in the Title Keyword portion on the WL?

    I think I use SURVIVOR* with an asterisk as the Title Keyword, and use INTERESTS:REALITY as the category. I had been using HD:INTERESTS:REALITY, but was missing episodes due to faulty guide data. I removed the SD CBS channel from Channels I Receive so the the WL only picks up the HD version.
