    It still wouldn't have recorded the game. The problem was if your TiVo did update before the game it wouldn't show it because previously it was listed as game 5.

    I apparently had a reboot or lost power. I only got the first hour of the World Series recorded. In the history for why it DID NOT record, was "This program was not recorded bacause the power was lost or the recorder was unplugged"

    OK, so it rebooted in a few minutes (logs confirm) why not restart the recording? Guess it can't.... :( :(

    Learned something new....

    There is no upgrade from the Series 1 DirecTV combo, it's the greatest TiVo ever made.

    Sorry BubbaDude, but I owned 2 S1 D-TiVOs, DSR-6000 and GXCEBOT, and since going to the S2 DVR-80 I don't miss either of the S1s. S2 D-TiVos are much faster, unlike most their standalone counterparts since 7.1.x, and folders make NP screen much less cluttered.

    I have never seen or heard of this happening to me or anyone else. The only way TiVo would not record something on the To-Do list is if another program was added that created a conflict.

    Actually, its because the guide data updated the same day so if your TiVo downloaded guide data before the WS game (or during), then it realized it already had that episode (game 4) in the Now Playing list so it canceled the recording.

    Nope, you're wrong.

    A program was deleted from the program guide - Game 5 - and replaced with a new program, Game 4. Either should have been recorded, because both match the Wish List for "Series" plus Baseball. But TiVo decided not to record Game 4 because it believed, incorrectly, that it had already recorded Game 4 on Wednesday.

    There was a conflict of sorts, between Game 4 on Wednesday and Game 4 on Thursday, but if that was a conflict it should have been resolved on the basis of that the newer guide data was better than the old guide data.

    Silly TiVo, you see, doesn't trust the guide data and screws up.

    Whats cache card?

    Yup, yup, yup, USB 2.0

    Too bad I cant order Game 4 from Tivo. The HD feed that is. THere is a money source that the networks havent tapped. Hmm, MLB would own it I guess.

    Sporting events and other last minute changes (for example Presidential Addresses to the Nation) always mess things up for me too. Do I blame the TIVO...NO!!! Because it's a machine and I'm the one that programmed in what I wanted.

    Best suggestion I have for something like world series baseball is to Schedule by time and channel. I would suggest going as long as possible since sometimes the games go over the network scheduled time. Remember last year's playoffs? How many innings did it go in the Post Season to tie the record, or was it a new one. Anyway, point is that it's BASEBALL it could be a no hitter and be a short game or a game that goes until 3am. I'm sure we would here from you if it recorded the first 9 innings of a 13 inning game.

    If that still doesn't work hire the neighbor kid that mows your lawn to babysit your TIVO. At least with him you can call his parents and get him grounded if he doesn't do it right.

    My recommendation?

    DON'T WATCH BASEBALL!!!

    God-awful boring "sport", with a bunch of drugged up millionaires. Fine role models all.

    MLB deserves the tiny tiny ratings they've been getting.

    BubbaDude programmed the TiVo to record Game 4, but Game 4 didn't get recorded. I'd blame the TiVo, too.

    Nice try, Bubbles.
    Your Tivo was set to record game 5 and you knew that game 5 wasn't going to be played yet you did nothing about it and you're still blaming the Tivo. Now that's just brilliant.

    Care to play again?

    If I lived in Baltimore, I'd probably feel the same way you do, but as I don't, I don't.

    Actually, no, I told the TiVo to record the entire MLB playoff series, and it didn't do the job.
