    Sometimes I want to set a season pass for a program that just finished playing a few hours ago. TIVO will not let me record that as a season pass. I always think I'll remember next time I see that program but I always forget until it's too late again.

    So, can you change the tivo record program options so that if a program is in the past, I'm still able to set a season pass to it?

    When looking at the show, use the view upcoming epsiodes and create a season pass from one of the upcoming episodes.

    You can't do it from the guide. You can do it from "Browse by Time" or "Browse by Channel", even for a show that is over. At least on the Premiere.

    You could make a wishlist for it. You can even do that for future shows that don't even exist yet. i.e., you see a preview for a show starting in Sept but you can't make a season pass, just make a wishlist for the show's title and set it to record automatically. Then when the show finally airs, create the season pass.

    Some show ads also have the TiVo Thumbs-up feature enabled. These ads display a little TiVo thumbs-up logo in the corner. When playing one of those ads, pressing the Thumbs-up will automatically record the show. Once recorded, one can then set a season pass from the recording.
