    Turned on the TV last night to watch DR. Who to find Tivo hadn't recorded it despite having a season pass. Checked the guide data to find no update since 11/4. Discovered that the wife had accidently pulled out the telephone connector while cleaning the windows! Anyway, forced an update and checked the season pass. It showed 4 upcoming episodes on BBC3 - nothing on BBC1. So, I deleted the season pass and went to the Doctor Who listing on BBC1 on Saturday and set up a new season pass. Same thing happened. Only BBC3 recordings. I went back to the Saturday episode to set it manually where it said record this episode as well. In other words it recognized that there was a season pass ofr the programme. I selceted record and went back to the season pass, but it still had only the BBC3 listings. The BBC1 episode is in the to-do list and shows as part of a season pass. If you cancel/edit it goes to the season pass but that episode isn't shown.

    Any ideas anyone?
    :) Phil

    How soon after downloading did you check the SP? It might not have finished indexing :) Try it again now and see what happens.

    I'm having no problems at all with my SP but then I haven't been missing any calls ;)

    I do have one 'odd' problem though.

    Although showing as (correctly) double-ticked when viewed ON the Tivo, when viewed via TivoWeb I see this:


    It looks like a 'clash' rather than a SP'd ep. No biggy, just wondered why :)

    It takes around one hour to index after it says "sucessful"

    Just checked again. Still showing only the BBC3 episodes. Incidentally, last night the season pass listed no episodes.
