    Ever since the Fall update my DT series 2 has had problems recording 2 basic cable shows at the same time.

    As an example from 8pm-9pm I record Ugly Betty and Earl/30 Rock. I noticed that all of a sudden the Earl/30 rock was missing. I have this all on a season pass and it has worked for a year. When I go to add the Earl/Rock shows it tells me that they overlap with Betty.

    I tried to add Big Shots at 10pm and it tells me about overlapping with shows at 8 and 9 pm none of which run beyond 10pm.

    Anyone else having this kind of problem. Tivo support had me re-setup my cable line-up but that didn't fix anything. This all worked before the update this week.

    I am having the same problem on all 3 of my Tivo's but its only with some shows. It seems right now that Earl, Bones, NCIS and the Office are linked so it won't let me tape all of them. When I go to tape the Office it states that there is a conflict with Bones or NCIS which is interesting because those shows are on Tuesday and not Thursday. This is extremely frustrating as I have rebooted machines, removed and redid the season pass and it still causes a issue. This is only since they did the fall update today.

    I wish I saw this before I started another thread..your not alone!

    In the Season Pass Manager, I noticed some programs have a yellow circle with one check while others have a purple circle with two checks...the ones with purple have the same show listed twice.

    Also, when I was trying to check the scheduled recordings, the TiVo now seems to prompt conflicting shows that don't really conflict. For example:

    I have Family Guy scheduled to tape on Sunday at 9pm. However, TiVo tells me it now conflicts with two shows I have scheduled on Thursday.....CSI at 9 pm and Supernatural at 9 pm. Under normal circumstances these two shows on Thursday tape at the same time because of the dual tuner.

    Now I do have a TiVo Series 2 Dual Tuner and all of the main basic cable channels are clicked to record on both analog inputs if there is a conflict. I have never had these issues until the recent software upgrade.

    Very strange and frustrating. Anyone have any insight or answers? Has TiVo metnioned anything about it? Thanks
