I moved this summer, thus switching cable providers and line-ups. With the fall season around the corner, I noticed that all of my cable channels updated properly for my season passes (e.g. AMC, FX, etc.) but the networks did not (NBC, ABC, etc.). I am assuming this is because the local channels use the call letter identifiers, so the TiVo is confused.
This is not the main problem. I simply deleted the old season passes and recreated them.
The problem I'm having is this: in trying to recreate the season passes, I'm being given a conflict that doesn't seem to exist. I like watching the NBC comedies. My wife likes watching Glee. They are now in conflict on Thursday nights.
I figured the problem was simple. Record the NBC shows without any extensions (e.g. one minute earlier or longer) and then create a season pass for Glee that does the same. So even though The Office and Parks & Rec overlap with Glee, that should work, right? I think it works like this:
Tuner 1: The Office at 8, Parks & Rec at 8:31
Tuner 2: Glee 8-9
Instead, the TiVo tells me that Glee won't record because it overlaps with The Office. I can't for the life of me figure out why this is. Parks & Rec is the higher priority. The Office is above Glee (since Glee hasn't yet been created). But there's no conflict, right? I even checked the To Do List to make sure there aren't any other shows airing to cause this problem.
So what's happening here? Is this a fault on my end, or Tivo's?
Thanks for any help you can all share.
