Full Date on Recordings

Is there a setting that would allow me to see what year I recorded some shows? I've had some shows since I first got my Premiere and was just curious what actual year I recorded them. I can only see the month and day from the info screens.

Press INFO while on the program screen.

Did that change with the premiere of the Premiere?

'Cause on S2s and S3s, that only gets you original air date, when you might have recorded a later re-run.

Some of the PC software will show the full date / year recorded, so this is limited by the Tivo display.

The whole "first aired" thing is subjective to the show itself, which is annoying.

Some recordings show the "first aired" like "Today" as the first episode ever 1/14/52 while other shows like "Glee" show on the day it aired 4/1/14

Very annoying. Continuum tonight is a "new" season and the date shown is for Canada.

The first-aired date is supposed to be the date on which this particular episode first aired, but as you say it's often misinterpreted and ends up being the date on which the first episode of the series aired. That may be harmless for most news shows since everybody knows they don't repeat, but it causes confusion in other cases.
