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!

I had hopes when I first saw this "What's New" collection but it isn't kept updated at all. Very disappointed. If this is meant to be a "curated" list then the curators aren't paying attention. (I've seen lots of other collections pop up over the summer but the "What's New" section unfortunately appears to be dormant.

They should come out with a new one soon that includes the new shows coming out over the next few months.

Just use pilot/premiere record 'new only'.. then you'll only get a few wrong, for shows without guide data.

"pilot" worked pretty well for me.

"premier", not so great .. lots of "new" "premier league" soccer games.

Thanks for the suggestion.

With a few additions/changes to wishlist programming we wouldn't need the collections for new fall and spring shows. (Also some additions like being able to include ratings for movies would be great.)

premiere, not premier.

I use both words, in an 'or' type wishlist.

duh on the spelling. Thank you.

I had to look up the OR thing, use thumbs down to make both title keywords optional, I think that did it.

Thanks again.

"pilot" worked for Legends last night on TBS.

Finally got my roamio pro set up with the correct cable card firmware with comcast and then saw this topic about using collections to auto record all the new fall tv shows instead of setting up season passes for them wright away. Went to collections but nothing is there about new fall sho ws so am i too early? ALSO set up wishlist with keyword pilot and premiere and nothing coming up that way either. I know some new shows afe available to record so am i too early. Thanks for any advice on this matter.

there's a lot of entries in "upcoming" but most are pilot reruns, so not going to be recorded. There's a few pilot/premieres in my list that will be recorded, but it's not much, Utopia and Ellen Degeneres. It's recorded a few Pilot/Premieres already, from cable channels.

If you're not seeing anything in upcoming yet for that wishlist, then you might need to give it a day or so to get all the guide data.

Do not see many replies to my inquiry about using collections and or wishlist with the year 2014-15 in it to see if that would work.I would just like to know if any one thinks they will have it this season for recording shows . I have been checking both collections and wishlist for the past ten days ,so far nothing and i know that there are already some new fall shows in the guide to be recorded. please let me know what anybody here thinks is a solution to this.

I called tivo about an hour ago and talked to a rep and asked him about collections and why no new shows coming up on my wishlist for new fall shows with pilot and premiere in it and he said maybe not put in the new os . He then said maybe was not put in the new os.I also asked him why my wishlist for new fall shows with pilot and premiere new shows only did not show anythig yet and he said he would put in request for that also.

I've been checking Collections the past few days as this seems like the best approach for us to use. A little disappointing that nothing has appeared yet.

"Pilot" Wishlists aren't showing new shows yet because there aren't any in the guide yet. Give it a few days.

"Fall Television" collection is there and it seems to be doing the right thing so far.

I checked again after the TiVo email blast about Fall TV shows, which I think was towards the end of last week.

It did get some errors when trying to schedule it, so I deleted it and tried again.
