    OK, at first I thought I was imagining it, but I just found out what I was remembering. Basically, it looks like it requires membership to your local PBS station..

    e.g. I found:
    KQED Passport is an added benefit for valued donors of public television.

    With KQED Passport, you can enjoy past episodes of many of your favorite PBS and KQED shows on demand using your computer, smartphone or tablet. More platforms and devices are coming soon!

    The requirement is $5/month or $60/year (yeah I realize that's the same thing cost wise).

    I see 155 total episodes of JUST Masterpiece available, with KQED Passport.

    so it'd probably be worth it if I were going to watch a ton of it... (I doubt it removes the ads though.)

    If we create a "Masterpiece" Wishlist, should we kill the OnePasses we have for various Masterpiece shows?

    I told my wife to check Indian Summer to see if she had everything and sure enough, the one from last week did not record. Oddly the history shows a duplicate didn't record at 2am, but the actual episode she wanted is no where to be found. We have had some other issues since the Rovi apocalypse too.

    It doesn't really matter if you have duplicate wishlists/OnePasses.. unless for example they have different HD/SD-settings.

    Slightly off topic, but long ago I made a "Pilot" OR "Premiere" wishlist to catch new shows.. It was fairly successful, and only had a FEW shows it would try to record that didn't match what _I_ was intending to record.. but of course they did properly match the actual criteria of the wishlist.

    Anyway, over the weekend I added "and NOT 'Season'" to the wishlist, which seems to have fixed the vast vast vast majority of the new "problem". (One enhancement of the Rovi guide data is that shows talk about the "season 2 premiere" and such in the guide data..)

    So anyway, this wishlist for me has been set to record in SD, only because I have it at a fairly high priority, and wanted to make sure I didn't fill up my drive/lose other recordings I wanted more if I wasn't paying too much attention to false positives..

    but since it was high in the OP list, it would take precedence over other OPs..

    So that's about the only concern I can think of.. Otherwise, having the Masterpiece WL fairly high AND keeping the other OPs around in case they switch back or something, would be useful..
