    This is so frustrating - it did not happen before the Roamio merge. It used to be that my DVR connected every few days so I'd only have to say "don't record" every few days. Now it seems to connect every day & doesn't realize when I've previously said not to record a specific episode. Late last year I remember seeing a post from a Tivo employee saying it should be resolved in January of '17, but the post seems to have disappeared....

    I have this problem. It started just after Tivo changed their source for the program guide.

    It's common for new users to record repeats for the first 28 days. Check back next month. Start a new thread too.

    Is your one pass set for “new only”, or “new and repeats”, the default option? If the latter, Joe nailed it, above.

    Rovi is complete horse caca [which goes hand in hand with what Tivo has become], even when there are new shows like the new season of The Venture Bros. since it doesn't have a 'new' tag or airdate but a description it doesn't get recorded--- that issue isn't there with Gracenote listings

    Tivo has NEVER EVER EVER EVER used a "new" tag, from what everyone else has described.. (as in I haven't actually seen the code myself)

    WITHOUT an airdate, Tivos HAVE recorded those *just in case*.

    Can you give a SPECIFIC example with details of a 'generic' listing recording NOT recording with a OnePass?

    Again, I'm not disagreeing that the guide data is much worse (in general) with Rovi than the previous data.. (The one case which at first I thought was worse but now I actually think is better is that the keyword premiere/pilot is there much more often, so my auto record wishlist for (pilot|premiere) -SEASON actually hits more shows nowadays, and I like it..)
