    I have to wait till monday to record the new top gear. Im so mad i can hit something. the bbc top gear

    I guess i will have make have to make sure it records nexts time. this the second time my tivo missed it

    I made a manual recording and moved it all the way to the top of the list so theres no way tivo can miss it for a 3rd time

    Did you check the "Recording History" in the "To Do" list.

    It tells you why a show did not record. It also tells you ahead of time why a show will not record.

    Check the recording history as dwit indicated and report back what it says. Mine recorded it OK on Comcast and my season pass is set up to record only new episodes.

    Because BBCA screwed up the listings and set the first run date for these shows to be earlier in the summer, even though they're not repeats. Click info on a show and you'll see what I mean - all the new Top Gears have to be set to record manually because of this.

    This year BBCA has gone back to using the original airdates from the UK for Top Gear, which fall outside the 28 day rule for first-run.
