    Glee did not record tonight. My TiVo says "the episode wasn't recorded because it was a repeat or I set it to record first run only. Yes, I DID set it to record first run only, but this was a BRAND new episode! Why in the world didn't it record? Anyone else get caught by this?

    Same problem here, didn't even show in the recording history (To Do) list as to why it didn't record.

    Same here in Austin. Our Tivo did not show anything in recording history, which is odd since we had a season pass.

    Same issue.. No recording. Got the same message in Recording History.

    TiVo thought it was a repeat and the SP is set to FRO. So, it didn't record. WTF? Was it a repeat? The description doesn't make it sound like it was.

    From the sound of the TiVo remote being chucked across the room by my roommate, I'm pretty sure it was a new one. :eek:

    WTH? Same here in Houston. It doesn't show in the history at all. I checked for next week's and it said "will not record" too. They always record.

    Any ideas why this happened? Is there someway to get it on demand?

    This desribes our experience as well.

    In 11 years, I don't think I've seen an error I couldnt attribute to user error or bad guide data. Nothing at all in recording history, SP is set up correctly, and guide data seemed fine, so I'm flummoxed (wife is more along the lines of pissed :D)

    Edit...never mind, fox evidently had bad data, tagged as repeat

    Has it always been like below? I thought the To Do list specifically called out when it wasn't going to record because an episode was a repeat?

    Augh, first baseball deprives us of Glee for a month, and now bad guide data gets in on the action too?! :mad:

    It's interesting some of you didn't get it in recording history.

    What TiVo are you using? It sounds like my Series 1. That wouldn't tell me if it wasn't recorded because it was a re-run and the SP was set to FRO.. But my Premiere actually tells me that. PRetty handy in a situation like this.

    I Just chatted with TiVo support. Here's the reply:


    Andrew: Thank you for contacting TiVo! My name is Andrew. So that I may better assist you, are you an existing customer?
    Steve Rawley: My TiVo didn't record Glee tonight and it wasn't in the history at all
    Andrew: If you go into your Season Pass of Glee, is it setup for First Run Only?
    Steve Rawley: Yes. This was new
    Andrew: Thank you. One moment please.
    Steve Rawley: The TiVo community forum is lighting up all over the country with complaints!
    Andrew: That is unfortunate.
    Steve Rawley: Is it possible to get "on demand" via TiVo from Comcast?
    Andrew: Unfortunately not as the CableCARD installed is not a two-way communicating device.

    It looks like the guide data that is provided to our lineup team did not have the Glee episode marked as first run. This would mean your unit was not scheduled to record the program at all.

    I have a Premier and series 3. Neither got it

    My response from chat support...

    Andrew: I would be glad to assist. This is one of our highest trends of the evening. The reason is because the lineup information provided to us did not include a flag as First Run. This means the units set to 'First Run' missed the recording.

    I am going to have to check the todo list for Friday to make sure Fringe is on there. If I missed that, I would be quite a bit more upset than missing Glee.

    I may have been too quick... I have a feeling it recorded as a suggestion(I started watching it before It finished recording). I just did a recover of the episode, and it shows up on the top of my now showing, but so does a true suggestion that I deleted, and recovered.
