    Thanks, I never check these so I could have missed the new season guide. I do find them useful (only for this purpose.)

    I miss the old TV guide "Fall Preview" issues.

    The ones they have now are not the same.

    will have to check out the guru.

    Right, it doesn't say Guru Guide but if you go under Browse TV and then Collections there are Fall TV collections you can record. When you look at them in the Season Pass manager they say "Guide" so I think they are the same thing.

    You can also access them online through your tivo account.

    ETA: I swear I was able to manage them online last year, anad not just view them. Is that now only on the Premiere? Am I just losing it? Both? ;)

    I find it odd that the new fall Guru Guide on my Eiger has only 8 shows listed, and they're all reality-based. (Despite my 900 channels on Comcast Digital Gold HD yada yada, I still don't get two of these shows.) Does everyone see this few programs?

    I think you are correct. I seem to recall being able to do that last year, also (I have a TivoHD). Looks like that's only supported for Premiere now.

    To access the guides (From Tivo's guru guide page) http://www.tivo.com/findtvshows/guides/index.html:

    "Go to TiVo Central > Find Programs & Downloads > KidZone Recommendations & Guru Guides."

    "Guru Guides generally deliver 3-10 hours of programming every week and are updated regularly, as new shows air, so you're always sure to be watching the freshest, hottest, most interesting programs on TV!"

    The Guru Guide for the Fall Season is not really ready for prime time yet. And remember a lot of shows actually premier after the World Series in October.

    Entertainment Weekly puts out a Fall TV Preview issue that is on par with the old TV Guide Fall Preview issues.

    Actually shows on CW are already premiering like "Ringer" (tonight, 9/13).

    I have a question though. In the past, the GURU guides would show-up on the Season Pass List. Is there a reason why this has changed? I can't see them in the Season Pass. Will the shows still record?

    Yes, I only have two lonely Series 2 DTs. They've served me well.

    I added mine to my Season pass list by going to "Get this guide." I got the new Fall shows and the Drama list.

    Funny thing about it though is that some of the shows in the Drama list don't show up in the new fall shows list. I wonder if there is a limit to how many shows it will display at a time in the list. Also, it seems to want to select the SD version by default, not the HD version.

    I noticed that. I suspect it is because not all cable systems get the HD version. For example, my HD Tivo with cable cards is happy to receive Fox network in HD, my Tivo Series II connected to a cable box can only get the SD version.

    I can't speak about the HD TiVos (which I'll hopefully have one soon -- with a cable card)....

    But, after an hour or so, the Guru Guide shows DID SHOW UP on the Season Pass List. :up: Phew! And I was worried. Now, if there is something that I end-up keeping from the new shows, there it is.

    As for the HD shows, I like what one of the Cable systems in NYC area is doing. Everything in what you consider the normal range (where all the channels you expect used to be) are in HD, if you have an HD converter, or Cable Card, etc. That way, you don't have to flip to the 400, or 700 or whatever series of channels to find your HD channels. They are where they're supposed to be.

    Why isn't everyone doing that? -- I suspect that's a question for a different thread!
