    Oddly...the 2:00PM (ET) "Haven" episode is the only one from that day that's appearing in the ToDo list.

    I'll just add in that my DirecTV DVR picked all the questionable Havens up just fine with no intervention.
    There wasn't much in the description, so I'm thinking the DTV DVR must err on the side of caution and record just in case.

    That no longer seems to be the case. The only episode still missing a "First Aired" date is the one new episode for 9/30/.

    Yes you are correct. The one new episode for 9/30 is the season finale, so even if it doesn't show there, we don't have to worry about it again for a while.

    I had this problem with "Friday Night Lights" when it ran on NBC. The guide data said it first ran last fall, but that was on Direct TV. The work around was to change the SP to record new and re-peats. That solved the problem. I've been watching the "To do List", te see if Haven shows up. When is doesn't, I go tell it to "record this show anyway".

    Yes iTunes absolutely does stream TV shows.

    Buy an AppleTV2 (for $99), and then you can buy and stream shows directly from your TV - no download needed, no iTunes client needed. And you can do it as many times as you want - they keep a record of what you purchased, and you can stream (or download if you really want) as many times as your want, on any device attached to your account, including iPads, iPhones, etc.

    I use Favorites on the AppleTV to replace my Season Pass list. It clearly displays, with pretty album, art, which shows have new episodes, and how many episodes are new. Then I just click in, and play the shows marked as not watched.

    If part of owning a Tivo is having to stay on top of forums like this, then Tivo has lost it's way, and it's no longer worth it. I bought a Tivo so I wouldn't have to manage my TV viewing.

    Streaming is now real, and far more practical than all of us having pointless hard disks in each of our houses to record the exact same thing millions of times. Stream it once from the source (see my previous post).

    I changed my pass to FRO, and all the future showings dropped off.

    Good to know. Thanks.

    At the risk of taking this thread even further off-topic...

    While I enjoy streaming Netflix to my iPad/TV, I'm not nearly as enamored with it as you are. Because, frankly, there's more available on TV -- on my hard drive, so to speak -- than there is in the cloud. Probably half of what I watch on a regular basis is not available on Amazon, iTunes, or Netflix. Sure, that may change in time. But for now, I'd rather have ownership of my viewing than rely on a third-party provider.

    And it's nice to have most of my TV watching (foreign shows notwithstanding) available without having to do anything. And let's face it, this kind of glitch is extremely rare, at least for me.

    As of this moment, the Zap2It listings for SyFy show all the Sept. 30th daytime reruns of HAVEN have First Date Aired. However, the new episode and season finale at 10PM, they do not. For this week's episode (Sept 23), the 10PM listing does NOT list FDA....however, the repeat of it at midnight does. Go figure.
    I sent an email to TiVO about the problem, but have yet to receive a reply.

    Well, MY TiVO is scheduled to record this and next week's, but only because I added it manually and I'm not about to mess around with it at this point. It shouldn't be this much work...lol.

    You continue to be deliberately obtuse. What I said was that in THIS PARTICULAR INSTANCE YOU WERE AWARE OF THE PROBLEM!

    And Streaming the same content millions of times is better?

    Just sell your TiVos and go away.

    If you look at the "Full Episode Details", it is there for the 9/23 10PM showing. I looked at other shows identified as "NEW" and they were all like that.

    It is listed in FED for the 23rd but not for the 30th. The Date First Aired is not, however, listed in the listings themselves for either episode, and I suspect that's what TiVO uses for its info.

    What I am saying is that I checked other shows that are marked new in zapit, like "Blue Bloods" and none of them had a "First Aired" date in the primary entry, only in the "Full Episode Details".

    The 9/23 10PM showing of "Haven" has appeared in my "To Do List" and it has an "Original Air Date".

    The Wishlist caught it!!!! Haven “Friend or Fuax” will be repeated on Friday 9/30 at 11:00am pt. If you live on the East cost that may be around 0800. SyFy may be doing a marathon.

    One TiVo now has the 9/23 just fine, and the 2PM episode on 9/30. But not the right show at 10PM on 9/30.
    Second TiVo misses 9/23 but has that 2PM 9/30.
    Third TiVo (where I allowed repeats) will get the whole season 2 by next Friday night.

    For those new to thread, this is not complaining, just sharing, and curious why #1 and #2 are not identical. Also curious what's special about that 2PM show on 9/30?

    The season is almost over for Haven, and this is the only show I've seen this glitch.
