My Simpsons Season pass is about to record shows from 1989 even though it is set First Run Only. Am I missing something here? Obviously these aren't anywhere near first run.

The rest of my SP's seem to be accurate.. including other shows on the same network channel. Do these older simpsons simply lack the proper flags for the TiVo to acknowledge it's not a new episode?

yes. It may be due to malformed or missing flags that it doesn't know if it's new or not, thus it decides to get it anyway just incase.
