Why does 4400 show as first-run for my SP?

    The upcoming episodes on 6/4 are clearly reruns.

    When an episode only has generic guide data the TiVo treats it as first run because it can't be sure that it isn't a new episode. For whatever reason USA has a lot of episodes of The 4400 where they didn't provide any episode information; the description is just a generic description of the series.

    This is often referred to as "The Daily Show problem" due the the fact the Comedy Central consistently fails to provide reliable guide data for The Daily Show.

    My tivo did the opposite for me for my Degrassi SP. It did not record the last two new epis because the guide data wasn't updated and it picked it up as a repeat and didn't record.

    Note that the very last 4400 on 6/4 is some sort of recap show, not a repeat per se.

    Yesterday, my To Do List was showing all the 4400 episodes. USA must have put descriptions in because now it only shows the last recap episode in my To Do List.

    And it has the gall to tell me that I change my Season Pass settings. :)

    Exactly. According to the The 4400 website :

    The actual season premiere (two hours) is a week later at 9 eastern/8 central.

    That's what I thought happened. My To Do List looks the same as yours now.
