"Hybrid" season pass option?

Anyone know if this is possible, or if it's on the feature road map?

I'd like a "Hybrid" season pass for shows that get ran back to back to back to back, etc... Like Pawn Stars.

For example, I'd like the Roamio to keep 10 episodes of Pawn Stars. The New/First Run episodes would be kept until I delete and then the DVR could fill up the balance of 10 episodes with reruns.

In the Pawn Stars example, the new episodes come on Thursday night. Then the show frequently runs for a good part of the day on Friday and sometimes on Saturday. My current setting of "Record new and repeat" episodes knocks the new episodes out in favor of repeats by the time I decide to watch them on Sunday or Monday.

To fix this I have to choose to only record new episodes only, and then can't get my glut of repeats in should I decide to watch those as well. I haven't tried setting up two season passes with different delete rules (I don't even know if this is possible - two season passes for the same show.)

In and of itself, season pass settings can't be mixed.

I'm not sure if this would work, but I wonder if making a KUID season pass for new episodes, and a separate Wishlist that keeps 10 would get you close to what you want. Not sure if it would purge the new episode or not. I'd be curious to find out.

You could turn off the 'Keep 10' feature, and let it record all. It might fill up your entire DVR though, but I doubt it.

You could create a New episodes season pass AND a new/rerun autorecording wishlist.
That won't do exactly what you want, but will let you have new episodes be higher priority than the reruns.

Don't additional season passes for the same show have to be on different channels?

That's why the suggestion was to make a wishlist (all channels) and a SP. Those two can mix, and you'll only get one copy of the SP show since the 28 days rule about recording duplicates applies to shows at the same time.
