    Fringe was not on because of the World Series last Friday.

    Glee didn't record here either on Grande Comm Cable in Austin. Glad I'm not the only one. Seems like an odd Glitch to me for sure!!

    While I'm sorry it didn't record for everyone, I'm glad it wasn't just me! Wasn't in my recording history either.

    Amazon does have the eps for $1.99/$2.99 HD -- should be available tomorrow, and you can download to your TiVo box.

    Not really a screw up by the TiVo software, per se. It did what was right based on the SP settings. Of course, they rely on the guide data. Having a new episode be "coded" as a rerun jacks stuff up.


    Will buy on Amazon tomorrow and push it down to the TiVo

    Grrrr. Ditto. SP for FRO, Comcast Sunnyvale. Not in Recording History. The guide data is making me sad lately. Especially since the ad on TiVo Central is taunting me with "Glee returns tuesday at 8".

    You and me both!

    Right. And because it's been over two weeks since the last episode, we want to make DAMN sure this weeks episode records.

    BTW: My ToDo list shows that Fringe will be recorded. :up:

    I've been criticized before for my anal TiVio housekeeping chores but once a week, I review the upcoming week's ToDo list to see if anything jumps out at me. I noticed Glee wasn't set to record and I knew baseball was over so I checked out the episode guide, thought it looked new, so I manually set it to record.

    Two or three minutes a week is worth a pound of cure.

    I have Glee set for First Run only and it recorded last night as a regular episode. I may have caught it in some "housekeeping".

    I wish TiVo would dedicate a few minutes of an employee's time each week to check the major shows' guide data!

    This.

    Plus I have season passes set up to record First Run and Repeats. It's easier to delete a repeat, than to not have it in the first place. I guess perhaps some people don't want to give up the storage for repeats, and I do have to delete some shows from time to time because of that. Wonder what QA the guide data supplier has to check the metadata, or if somehow this was messed up in the info they got from Fox in the first place. I guess we'll never know that...

    IIRC, something similar happened with 60 Minutes a couple of weeks ago.

    I don't want to give up a tuner and have TiVo give higher priority to a repeat than a new episode of some other show.

    the only time I use First run and repeats is if I pick up a show mid-season or mid-series.

    Fortunately I have an 11 year old who noticed it wasn't in the to do list. I added it manually.

    No telling if they fixed the issue after East Coasters started complaining. Seems like some folks on the West Coast ended up getting it just fine, but it wasn't set to record on Monday.

    I would be surpised if they could have found out about it that quickly and gotten new guide data pushed out so fast. Don't TiVos generally look once a day for new guide data?

    Though I suppose the entry for the show could have been different for the west coast feed than it was for the east code feed to begin with.

    It wasn't fixed for me in Sacramento, CA. Neither of my TiVo boxes recorded it, and I didn't realize until I got home from dinner at 8:45 and the show was 75% over.

    Weird, mine recorded in Sunnyvale. I don't *think* I had told it to manually record, but maybe I had. (I know I do have a SP, FRO.. But also, esp on Tuesdays, I often have to do some manual tweaking due to some conflicts, esp when WSOP jumps around in different time slots.. and wanting to have padding on some of the other sitcoms..)
