    I just switched my SP to First-Run And Reruns (or whatever they call it), and that works just fine.

    At least until they go into reruns!

    I did that for the 09/02 episode but I would like zapit and/or SYFY to address the problem so it doesn't continue to be a problem and perhaps spread to other shows.

    Indeed. This is exactly why we have TiVo in the first place...so we don't have to worry about knowing whether there's a new episode this week!

    I'm new to TiVo within the last 30 days, and have had several New, First Run episodes not record or not scheduled to record. Very disappointed in the reliability of the guide data so far. I still have my Cox DVR running Rovi Guide Data and it has been correct with the exception that it also listed 09/03/11 "Doctor Who" as a Repeat.

    08/17/11 - "The Hour" BBC America - Not Scheduled to record - New episode.
    08/24/11 - "The Hour" BBC America - Not Scheduled to record - New episode.
    08/31/11 - "The Hour" BBC America - Not Scheduled to record - New episode.
    09/07/11 - "The Hour" BBC America - Not Scheduled to record - New episode.

    09/02/11 - "Haven" SyFy - Not Scheduled to record - New episode.
    09/09/11 - "Haven" SyFy - Not Scheduled to record - New episode.

    09/03/11 - "Doctor Who" BBC America - Not Scheduled to record - New episode, Listed as Repeat in Guide.

    Doctor Who had the correct "First Aired" date in the TiVo Guide Data, so why did it list it as a Repeat? Zap2It does not show the 09/03/11 episode as "New". Does Tivo also look at the "New" tag to determine whether to record?

    I set it to record the episode (and next week's too) manually, but it failed to record anyway because of tuning adapter failure to provide the signal. And of course it didn't try to get the repeat airings the same night since it was just a single event recording in Now Playing. Maybe if the data had been corrected it could have gotten one of the repeats that night, but in my experience it won't attempt to get another showing for 12 hours, too late for Syfy's repeat schedule.

    Syfy doesn't appear to have this full episode available for streaming (yet?).

    Looks like it's been fixed...both the upcoming episodes are now set to record under FRO.

    On mine, the 9/9 episode is fixed and is set to record. The 9/16 episode has no Original Air Date and is not set to record. Hopefully, it will be addressed by next week. If not, I guess the next step is e-mail to SYFY.

    Interesting...on mine, the 9/16 episode was scheduled to record yesterday, but isn't today!

    This is your TiVo. This is your TiVo on drugs.

    I've got an S2DT and it didn't record the 9/2 episode either. There was no mention of Haven at all in the recording history. The SP is set to First Run and I just looked and the 9/9 episode is in the to do list.

    Luckily I have Cox cable and the Syfy On Demand channel had the missed episode.

    I actually have an HD, an S3 and Premiere.
    Until yesterday 9/6, Haven 9/9 did not show up on any TiVo. I set the premiere to manually record. Yesterday the other two TiVos both show the 9/9 will record. The Premiere won't record at 10PM as I set the manual for midnight, just as an experiment. Yes, I find it odd that it took until 3 days prior to set as a future recording.

    I notice that the 9/16 episode of Haven is also missing from my premiere and I have it set to record new episodes. Though I notice that the 9/9 episode now is listed to record.

    9/16 Haven is not on any of my machines yet. I'm around, and will make a note to peek at it on Friday, curious if and when it will.
    I'm starting to see other shows less than 10 days out that dont appear yet. In one case, it can't record due to a conflict, and I wonder if I'll get some kind of notification, prior to the not recording. It's a season pass that was there from last year.
    Next few week, I'll need to jungle the machines for a few conflicts due to new season.

    You'll never get a notification if a SP doesn't record because of a conflict. The only time you'd see something like that is when you're actually setting up the SP.

    Rob, given that shows on Bravo and SyFy will often repeat at say, midnight and 1am, I wonder if I delete the 10pm season pass, letting the old show take the slot, and then request the midnight show on SyFy, if that will get me a midnight based season pass. maybe I need to allow first run and repeats to get that working?
    Make sense?

    Season passes are not time based. Just use the season pass manager to move season passes for non-repeating shows above those of shows that do repeat.

    No, the SP is for a specific channel, not for a specific time. If you have an SP, it will record the first available showing on that channel, unless there's a conflict with a higher SP; then it will go to the next showing; etc.

    If you set Haven to first run and repeats, it will work just fine...until the show goes into repeats. But for now, that's the only way to be sure. One hopes they will get this sorted out eventually, and not just on a week-to-week basis.
    This is how I do it. First, all the one-time-only shows; then all the repeating show. I also do finer gradations within the repeating shows, but that's something you can work out to your own tastes and anal-compulsiveness.

    If I got it right, assuming there are three shows same time, with the one that repeats. By deleting the repeat SP, and then adding to lower priority, it should work, recording all three. Does the repeater need to be set for "all shows" or is first run still going to find the first instance it can record?
