Thank you, innocent freak for responding so fast.
I see you do know I have two Tivos. I recently finished setting up the new Roamio with cable card and tuner. This is the Tivo on which I am having problems with the Search function finding current shows.
My second Tivo, BTW, is not a Premiere, but a *Series II*. It was the box previously hooked to my digital cable box but is no longer. I deleted the Premium channel Season Passes on the Tivo II and revised the channel setup to remove the premiums from that Tivo.
I hope Tivo is not confusing the channels my two Tivo units are able to receive?
I had to create all my Season Passes on the Roamio manually. Roamio does find Premium listings of Showtime and HBO in searches, just not easily or consistently.
On Roamio search, I've had trouble with searches for network, cable and Premium shows the past week or so since I hooked it up. I did not keep records so my memory of the details for each problem is not perfect.
Before reading your post, I didn't know about the default to lowest broadcasting channel you mentioned in your original post. If so, I don't know how I ended up with Passes on much higher HD channels as I did for some non-Premium shows.
The most recent search problem was with "Homeland" which is a Showtime broadcast. All I can say is that it did not record last week's new episode and I had to do a new search which found the show again and create another season pass for it.
This time I checked the list of future episodes for the current season to make sure the checkmarks were there.
As I indicated in my first post, the problem is that search results for shows that have reruns on cable TV are very confusing for finding the currently broadcasting season.
I admit that I went from Series II menus to the Roamio changes and that I am still getting used to all the changes and additions. However, I am fairly sure the problems with search results is due to the confusing (or inconsistent) way they are listed in the results.
In one search for a show under "Episodes", the current season number was not listed but episodes were there under "Upcoming".
I've also had instances where recently recorded (or recording) shows have not shown up on "My Shows" in a consistent manner. Again, could this be a problem at Tivo Inc confusing my different Tivo hardware?
Thanks again for taking the time to read my admittedly long posts.
