    How do I get one pass to just record an episode ONE TIME? Isn't Tivo created to record only what u want without having to manually ask it to record each individual episode?

    It depends on what you are recording. For example, I used to have a One Pass for 11 PM local news and it would always record the replay at 2 am or whenever it gets replayed. Have seen it happen on other shows too. Best way to manage it is to go into the To Do List and delete the scheduled recordings you don’t want.

    What are your OnePass settings and what are you seeing and with what show?

    If your 1P is set to record "everything", then it will ALWAYS record the same program every time it is on, even if you already have it recorded. If your 1P is set for "new and reruns" it will USUALLY just record any specific episode only one time (but there are a lot of bugs in this, especially with TE4).

    Some of this will depend upon the guide data and whether or not the episodes are clearly indicated. If the guide data isn't unique enough you may find the same episodes being recorded because there is nothing uniquely identifying the content so it could be noted as already being recorded.
