    I wish that Tivo didn't record the same episode of "The Daily Show" 8 times a day! I have that problem with many of the shows I record on cable. In the case of "The Daily Show" even though I've got it set to record "first run only" and to keep only 1 episode, it still records the same episode over and over and over again!

    Bad guide data, it happens. When the guide data is lacking the TiVo can't tell if something is first run or a rerun, so it errs on the side of caution.

    This is a very, very common complaint with a few shows - notably TDS and The Colbert Report. Most of the time the data is OK, but sometimes - especially when the show is on break and showing repeats - the data goes generic and the TiVo can't tell what it should record. (BTW, it only airs 4 times a day, not 8). Most people cope with this by either manually pruning their To Do List from time to time (what I do) or using a manually recording (which I think has too many problems).
