New Program listed as Repeat?

Just happened to see a promo for the new Tom Selleck Jesse Stone TV movie, "Jesse Stone: Benefit of the Doubt" and wondering why my auto-record wishlist feature didn't pick it up. Apparently, it is listed as a "Repeat" (it is new) and my auto-record feature was set for "First Run Only."

Sure enough there is no "New" label next to the show in the guide.

Programming data glitch?

Looks like a problem with info supplied by CBS. There's no original air date listed and Zap2it also doesn't show it as new. It possibly could be updated before Sunday and your Wishlist maybe would have picked it up.

Not sure why, but it doesn't come up in a TiVo search, which is why I asked when it's on.

I was wondering about that. I tried searching for it last week but it didn't come up. I had to go to the future air date in the guide to setup a recording for it.

This has happened to me with a whole season of "How it's Made..." NONE of this season's episodes are marked as "New..." so my TiVo never recorded them...

There is no such thing as "marked as New". There is an "original air date" field. According to what others have said, Tivos use the original air date info to determine if a show is new (so for instance, a show that aired in England a year ago will PROPERLY have an OAD of a year ago, and thus a first run only SP won't get it). If there is generic info, it will record, in case it happens to be a new show (which IMHO would be a good thing to have as a pref, "treat generic info as old".. though that would PO some people)

I am NOT sure what happened in this particular case. Did you check the Recording History for this Sunday before manually scheduling it to record?

I disagree. Many "New" shows have the yellow "new" label next to them...in the guide data and in the My Shows list.

Jesse Stone still has no "new" flag, nor does it have an original air date listed.

Recording history stated it as a repeat.

What he's saying is that TiVo doesn't record according to the New label, but by the Original Air Date. Not sure why history shows it as a repeat, because without an OAD TiVo shouldn't think it's a repeat. I still say the fault is with the info being given by CBS.

Just curious, how is your Wishlist set up, a specific title or actor?

Wishlist was set up as "Jesse Stone" on auto-record new programs only, but I changed it to include new and repeats due to the glitch. The movies don't air too often so, having a few show up on my To Do list every now and then was no big deal.

Who knows, maybe I'm wrong, maybe Premieres do act differently. The way I described it is how everyone has said it has worked for all previous Tivos (and does seem to match user noticeable behavior).

That does stilll seem to be the case for recordings. The question is, what is the visible "New" tag keying on that causes it to tag the program as "New" when the recording mechanism does not?
