    Wish I had seen it. Just got home to find TiVo didn't record it even though I verified it a few days ago. Tempted to just skip the whole season now.

    I was tempted to skip the whole season after last season's reunion show. But it actually was a pretty good start, IMO.

    This drives me crazy. o_O

    It doesn't help that I have that little green D button so I don't watch commercials at all. At least before the commercial skip I would see a promo commercial fast forward and know that I needed to set up or attempt to set up a One Pass. I guess it's a good thing that I am an idiot and pay for CBS All Access for Star Trek and TZ and barely use it. I can at least watch the first episode on that and then setup my Pass.

    New season pass picking up S39E2, old one picking up E3 for now.

    I guess I missed E1 already.

    Wishlists don't always work either. (either picks up too much or not all episodes.)

    I checked before last week's episode and had to create a new one pass to get the premiere, but the second episode was set to record with the existing one pass. So I thought I was ok with the two passes. Apparently they "fixed" it since then so neither pass worked for tonight's epidsode and I missed it. No working Comcast on demand Tivo app still, right? Guess I'll have to watch it on the computer.

    I currently have four one passes for Survivor. I have the original "default" one dating back to my old Series 3 that I moved over to my Roamio back in 2015 that always worked every season before the Rovi disaster. I also have one for Edge of Extinction(which is currently picking up next weeks episode), one for David vs Goliath and one for the current season, Island of Idols. These also change every so often so next week the David 1P might become Heroes or some other season. I figure I'll end up adding a few more by the time the season is done because it's Rovi doing Rovi things.

    Instead of futzing around with your SPs, why not create a manual repeating weekly recording for that time and channel? Then delete all your Survivor OPs.

    The problem with that is when they have special two hour episodes, or air off-schedule as they do sometimes, especially for finales.

    They do that maybe twice a season, and it's easier to adjust twice a season rather than check 4 OPs to make sure you're recording correctly every episode. JMO.

    I get so tired of having to babysit my To Do list because TiVo can't get their crap together from one season to the next. As soon as I cut the cord, TiVo will lose another customer. Services like YouTube TV seem capable of recording all episodes of a series from one season to the next without constant user intervention.

    It looks like my Survivor Island of the Idols one pass picked it up. But the Febuary 12th, 2 hour show, is labeled "Greatest of the Greats" and shows it as Season 40 Episode 2. Strange, but I'll keep an eye on it.

    Yep, same.

    Fully expect all that to change, like, 5 times before the episode eventually airs. TiVo/CBS has to achieve maximum annoyance factor, after all. No sense in making it smooth/easy for users.

    I noticed last night the guide changing to Episode 1.

    And just like last season, this may have been too good to be true. Checked on the guide data this morning and the second episode (Feb 19) is not being picked up by the "Idols" OnePass (episode 1 is still). So, more than likely, they'll swap whatever it is they swap, and a new OnePass will be required again.

    So everyone, get ready.

    My OnePass from S39 is picking up S40E1 and S40E2.

    FYI, my last connection was 3 hours ago.

    Yep. That's why I started this thread 3 years ago.

    Yeah, I checked again this morning, and my OP eventually picked up S40E02. I still don't trust that OnePass though. It's that TiVo/CBS Reality Show "PTSD". Will probably end up checking it on the hour until the show airs/is recorded.
