    The latest Ricky Gervais-Stephen Merchant creation 'Life's Too Short' premieres in the US on HBO on Sunday, February 19. Unfortunately, a Season Pass with the 'First Run Only' option selected fails, as the series is listed as starting last November (when it ran in the United Kingdom). Resetting the option to 'Repeats & first run' will allow it to be recorded.

    Thank you for that info! I thought there was a bug in TiVo when I set up that SP and the first episode didn't get set to record. There was no obvious "R" designating it as a repeat.

    won't allowing reruns make it record everything though? It airs a lot.

    No, it will just record one instance of each episode (until 28 days have passed, then it will record it again).

    "Record All Including Duplicates" (or something like that) is what you're thinking of.

    After I create a new SP, I always View Upcoming Episodes to ensure it's going to record as expected. Cases like this are the reason why.
