    Is there any way to keep shows like 'The Daily Show' or 'The O'Reily Factor' that are filmed live every day from recording 3 times a day? It's pretty annoying to delete 28 episodes out of my upcoming showings list. I bought a Tivo HD so I wouldn't have to do things like this, so hopefully some one knows how to fix it. Nothing I've read so far can tell me how to fix it.

    "The Daily Show" now tends to have ok guide data nowadays. If you're deleting programs two weeks out, don't bother. The guide data is typically updated a few days in advance.

    "O'Reilly Factor" appears to not have good guide data at all. You can... (1) Set up a manual repeating recording for time and date, or (2) select "Keep At Most = 1" in the season pass so that you always have the most recent episode.

    OK, well, I guess I just thought the Tivo would be smarter than that. Oh, well. If I set up a manual recording, will the Tivo still know what program is playing and label it, or will it just be confused? :confused:

    The reason I ask is because those two shows are not the only ones that it seems to happen to, it also happens to hannity and colmes and if none of them are labeled in the tivo it would be pretty annoying to have to search through them all to find which one I want to watch at the time.

    A Tivo can only do what it's told to do. You tell it to record new episodes only, it will do that. The problem is with guide data. Tivo uses the guide data (not voodoo or witchcraft or some other supernatural power) to determine what's new and what isn't. You can't blame tivo for a cable networks inability or lack of caring to provide accurate guide data.
