    The season finale on 10/3 may not record with a First Run pass, because it has a 9/26 date. The penultimate episode originally scheduled for 9/26 did not air because it got rescheduled for 10/3, and was then combined with the finale as a 2 hour episode titled "Emily Lake; Stand." But due to some flunky's error, it still has a 9/26 date. So adjust accordingly, and hope for better guide data next season.

    It got picked up by my FRO SP, as it should have. The TiVo "knows" that it hasn't recorded the episode with an OAD of 09/26/2011. Just like the 9/2 episode of "Haven" got picked up on 9/23 by those that missed it the first time.

    All you can state with accuracy is that your Premiere got it right, not all TiVos. In the Haven thread, it was shown your Premiere responded differently than other TiVo models, and other DVRs for that matter, so please don't continue to assume everyone will have your results. It's the reason why I wrote "may not record" since there seems to be mixed success with messed up guide data.

    It's still within the 30-day first-run window.

    That is a @%$!* lie.

    The only thing different on my Premiere is that it reported the reason for not recording it in the "Recording History". Other than that, my Premiere behaved exactly the same as every other TiVo. It wasn't my Premiere that picked up the 9/2 episode of "Haven" when it was repeated. I had forced it to record when it was originally shown.

    Please don't assume that I am telling people not to verify that it will be recorded. I was simply providing additional data.

    Yep. The air date shouldn't be a problem for a FRO season pass. Now a 2 hour length might trigger an unexpected conflict and that could block the recording. So it's still a good idea to double check that it's scheduled.

    My Guide data is correctly showing the 2-hour double episode on Monday to be recorded.

    Same here, on an original Series3.

    FWIW, Warehouse 13 repeats so much, I don't think the fact that this is a two-hour double episode should cause problems with folks' SPs. If it doesn't get it Monday, there are multiple repeat showings.

    My Series 2 with a FRO season pass picked it up and is set to record two hours Monday evening. It picked up Haven, mentioned in another thread, too.

    The guide data was updated with the correct air date yesterday. Crisis averted.

    Why do I hear Emily Litella saying "Oh. Never Mind."? (No, I am not implying that this thread was anything like opposition to the "deaf penalty". It's just a joke. My comment, not the thread.:D) Personally, I think we need more "sax and violins" on TV.

    I think it's 28 days... (even the recording history says the # of days..)
