Only wishlist option for some shows?

I am noticing that only the wishlist option is available to record some shows, and
Not Season Pass? Why is that? and what if i just want to have a season pass for a show and NOT have Tivo record shows that "match?"

Thank you

More details? New show, new series, existing series, etc?

I have found that when a show first appears in the guide (about 10-12 days out), it often can be set to record, but not as an SP. Wait 24 hours, and the SP option appears. This happens on a consistent basis.

And of course the show has to actually be a series. And not a one-off.

This has been precisely my experience, and it's annoying! As there are some interesting summer series around, I've waited (im)patiently for them to appear in my guide data only to find that I wasn't allowed to create a new SP. I scheduled the first episodes of a couple and then kept waiting until eventually the "Get a Season Pass" option appeared. I have to learn to work on that patience thing!
