I just set up a daily, repeating manual record for one hour to catch both the daily show and Colbert seven days a week. Every now and then I delete either the weekend upcoming recordings (which are really going to be some other show) or the weekend past recordings (which were really some other show).

Sorry, I don't watch BB. I do not know what the generic description is.

It looks like this will solve my problem with TDS Season Pass. Thanks!

Checking in for an update. Have not attempted the Tupper Method, but I wanted to know if still works or if there are still problems. This is the only Season Pass I really have problems with.

The "Tupper Method" of recording the Daily Show and Colbert Report still works for me.

The generic description for Late Night is: "Interviews and comedy sketches"

I haven't had to use a generic description for Survivor. However, I have blocked some shows that have randomly popped up in my Survivor WL. Right now the only blocked title in my WL is "I SHOULDN*T BE ALIVE".

Thanks.

So, for Survivor you just have it in the Title Keyword portion on the WL?

I think I use SURVIVOR* with an asterisk as the Title Keyword, and use INTERESTS:REALITY as the category. I had been using HD:INTERESTS:REALITY, but was missing episodes due to faulty guide data. I removed the SD CBS channel from Channels I Receive so the the WL only picks up the HD version.

This setup still is recording reruns on the Travel Channel for me?


Any way to prevent that?

You do have it set to record "First Run Only", right?

Do the reruns on the Travel Channel have programming descriptions and OAD's?

Edit your wishlist. Click on a title keyword, keyword, or actor that you added and you'll get a screen like that below:



Note you only get this with the latest TiVo software on the Series2 and TivoHD/Series3. If you just bought your TiVo, you won't see these options until your TiVo downloads a software update. That will usually take a few days.

Has anyone had success utilizing this method creating a WishList for the following two SPEED Channel shows:
- Speed Report
- Wind Tunnel with Dave Despain

They tend to repeat them about two or three times after they first air on Sunday night, and sometimes (or most times), I time shift-them. I have already wish listed "Wind Tunnel" but I always have to delete the extra show from the TO DO LIST.

Any suggestions appreciated, especially if someone has done it already.

Thanks.

I don't think it will work. It looks like all of the episodes have the generic descriptions:
Code:
Recap of the week's motorsports action.
Code:
The latest on the world of motorsports
If you excluded episodes with those generic descriptions, the WishLists would excluded all episodes. They wouldn't record anything.

I would either use a manual recording or set the recording options to Keep at Most = 1

I thought so --

I tried it, but could not get the "generic descriptions" right in any iteration.

I appreciate the advice.

It's not a solution, but you could create a repeating manual recording in the expected time slot.. then maybe also create a season pass, keep at most 1..

In the To Do list, if the show changes time slots, the repeating manual recording will show up with the 'wrong' name (it will show up with the name of the new show in that slot, not the name you expected)... so you could skim through the To Do list every once in a while and cull out the wrong one and notice if it has changed time slots permanently.

I have only one repeating manual recording (for about an hour and a half of World News Now), but it's partially preempted on Mondays, so I see it show up wrongly on Mondays.. (Sometimes I end up manually then getting the whole normal show to record -- but usually it's around 2 1/2 hours long but only 90 minutes of original content..)

Thanks mattack!

I have a Series2 DTiVo but I don't get the screen you posted. Does it not work on DTiVos?

DirecTiVos still run an older version of the software. It sounds like they never got that functionality.

Has anyone been able to use the original Daily Show fix on a Series 1 TiVo using an "Advanced Wishlist"?

I tried setting it up last night and it still picks up the Monday extras.

Does the S1 run the 9.x (or later) software?

LOL.... Nope, 3.5c.

But the back door Advanced Wishlist feature in that release was the precursor to today's standard feature. It allowed multiple keyword entries along with thumbs up or thumbs down.
