For those using the collection, remember that there are new shows premiering all the way into November for the fall season so it may be necessary to keep it around for a while.

Definitely well above and beyond the apps. I may need to give kmttg a try, the season premiere feature sounds especially useful.

How do you cancel a collection? I have tried all the menus and for the life of me can't figure it out. I went into the collections menus and I can't find a way to cancel the new fall shows collection.

They're at the bottom of the Season Pass Manager.

The "New Shows" collection doesn't have anything upcoming. Why did they stop updating that one? It recorded anything that was "new". (ie, not a rerun).

There's something called Midseason Premiers. Would that do it?

I'm subscribed to that one too. by the name, it seems like it will only get you the first new show not all of them, like the old "New Shows" did. but I don't see any way of telling.

"New Shows" was great. Wish they would keep updating it.

Despite the name, it does seem to be recording "new" episodes, not just the first one. That's good.

I was hoping there would be one for the new summer shows, and I've also been checking the "What's New" collection, but nothing yet. Last night I noticed the pilots for 2 new shows I've been anticipating didn't show up in What's New (Crossbones and The Night Shift).

I have a Wish List for keyword: Pilot that does not auto-record and I'm still relying on that and then manually add SP for shows. I tried adding a keyword "2014" but it didn't work for some reason because then nothing showed in the list at all for some reason.

In the Browse section there are these things called Collections. These are lists of programs based on various criteria, some of which are actually maintained by real humans. These collections can be setup to auto-record just like a Season pass.

This time of year there is a collection for New Fall Shows. By setting it to auto-record you'll get all the new shows without having to manually keep track of when they start, what night they're on, what channel they're on, etc... If you decide you like a show it's easy to add a real SP for it from the My Shows list. (you can even do this from a remote TiVo or Mini)

Typically what I do is I set up the collection to record. By November I decide which shows I like and set SPs for them, then I cancel the collection. It works great for discovering new shows without having to wade through the guide or keep track on a website like Futoncritic.
Didn't know about this. THANKS!
