    It could be either...

    - Is Amazon's meta data feed 100% accurate and updated at the same time as new shows?
    - Does TiVo access the meta data in real time or through some batch mechanism. How often does that batch update run?

    The longer this takes the more it is likely Amazon's data, but I still lean toward TiVo not running a timely update.

    Interesting... I added Bosch and when I choose to view "all episodes" you do see the new season has been updated, but shows grey to indicate it is not yet unavailable. So they have all the metadata, they just don't have the availability indicator turned on.

    I did check Amazon and it is available.

    This is a weird one...

    Yeah, that's the way it's been at least since Friday. Not sure if the episode list was there prior to that.....don't remember checking.

    Margret followed up a couple hours later. Sounds like they've identified a data issue. Expects it to be fixed by tomorrow.

    There is an issue with Downton Abbey on OnePass as well. The Christmas episodes appear on Amazon, but do not show up on OnePass.

    PBS has a bad habit of naming things in a DVR-unfriendly way. In January they aired "Edison: American Experience" which I recorded only because I caught a glimpse of a promo while watching another show. It should have been titled "American Experience" with "Edison" as the episode title so that my season pass would have automatically recorded it. And yes, I know about wish lists. I may have to use them more now that Classic TiVo is being replaced by New TiVo.

    You are correct, it shows in the supplemental season as unavailable - similar to Bocsh. Hopefully the data change they are making will address this problem globally.

    I'm glad to see this was already encountered and apparently fixed, even if not quite pushed out so we see the fix yet. I ran into this over the weekend while watching the first 4 or so episodes. The second time I utilized a OnePass for streaming and it was a fail. Of course the first time was also a fail (the episode I needed was a few episodes too old to be on Xfinity's OnDemand anymore and it wasn't available anywhere else supported by TiVo). :(

    There is also an issue with Survivor on OnePass. If you take out a season pass for "Survivor", only one episode (season finale from one of the seasons) appears. The other seasons are there, but under the specific name of the season (i.e., Survivor One World). I realize this is how season passes for Survivor used to be titled, but there ought to be a way for them all to be grouped under the name "Survivor."

    Similar to Downton Abby vs Masterpiece Theater - TiVo doesn't seem to do any post processing of this metada.

    You would think that Survivor would be linked by a single SeriesID, assuming each season uses a common ID. With independant names, it may have independant IDs.

    Each Survivor season does have a unique SeriesId: The EP0xxxxxxx in the URL of each season is the TiVo SeriesId:

    Not totally fixed. Episode descriptions aren't being passed through to Tivo's 1P folder.

    I don't like that it doesn't indicate if you have watched all or part of an episode, like it does with recordings. I can't just delete the episode, because my wife may want to watch this show after me. The progress indicator has been helpful for us to figure out if the other has watched a show already.

    I agree - I hope this is a future update. I read that Netflix is very stingy with the API information they will share - so that may be one reason it doesn't exist today...

    In any case, consolidating and presenting information from multiple streaming providers into a single view must have its challenges. If you can get the watched indicator from Netflix, but not Amazon - do you still implement it?

    If it has been watched on Amazon for 10% and Netflix 75% do you take the number of greatest value?

    And all this as a real time call to the streaming provider(s) each time you enter the folder?

    I still would like it though! :cool:
