    Same here, WishList failed to pick up the new season. I found the first show in the guide and created a new Season Pass from there.

    yeah, nowadays to look at prime time, I just hit guide and look through the grid for a couple of channels. It seems like in some situations, you're even returned to the proper place when you exit back out after making a recording nowadays.

    It's now three days away from the air date, and my "Amazing Race" wishlist still isn't picking it up. I'm really disturbed by that, because I don't understand how it could go wrong. Either wishlists don't work the way we always assumed they did, or something is seriously broken and we can no longer trust them. We haven't been able to trust OnePasses since Rovi took over, so if we don't even have wishlists as a backup anymore, that's a major problem.

    Does anyone know how this could happen?

    EDIT: I tried temporarily changing the wishlist to something else and then changing it back again. Now it picks up the new episode. Something must have been corrupted somehow. This still really worries me, because it could happen again in the future.

    Anyone else not get any SkipMode data for episode 1?

    I transfer these to PC with kmttg, cut the commercials and compress... and it really sucks when the skip file doesn't come through from the mothership. Especially when having to manually edit the video can spoil the episode.

    Just curious about what your wishlist was -- was it literally just the keywords AMAZING and RACE, separately?

    plus, this definitely isn't defending them, but Tivos have not been quite as reliable in the past few years (post Rovi) as they were before.. but they've always been SLIGHTLY quirky.... just far LESS BAD than the others..

    Premiere canceled. Bummer.

    Due to the 'Rona, CBS is holding off on premiering TAR32 (May 20th). Speculation is that it's either due to not wanting to show people running though crowded airports (during this time), or that CBS is holding onto it in case they don't get something to fill the fall Survivor slot (since filming a new season of that is up-in-the-air).

    Sucks even worse for the people that were on the show (which was shot in 2018!), since they're under NDAs which keep them from talking about the show, and they don't get paid until it airs in its entirety.

    That would be impossible to keep secret for that long, at least for me.
