    How do I check why a show isn't appearing in the To Do List? I know I can check history to find out why a show didn't record, but as far as I can tell that doesn't tell you about future dates.

    Press the C button to show(all) while in the To Do List. Highlight the show and look at the right hand pane for an explanation.

    I thought I had toggled through all the options on the To Do List; apparently I missed that one.

    I'm still confused. The show is Midsomer Murders on PBS. I recently created the One Pass to record new and reruns and show streaming. I've never recorded an episode of the show, yet it says it won't record because it's a duplicate. :-/

    The 1P manager, when you select the program, will indicate upcoming episode count. I show nothing for the next two weeks.

    Try changing the 1P "Include" to "Recordings only" and see if that makes a difference. Also, "Explore" the show and see what the "Upcoming" list looks like.

    Tivo seems to record new shows on its 'final' rerun and previous airing is tagged as duplicate. To solve this, select in OnePass options to Record everything.

    Where on earth did you get an idea like that? In any case, it wouldn't apply in this situation as "Midsomer Murders" is not new.

    And it's not showing in the next two weeks. Check Screener. [I can't answer your question]

    Not applicable anyway. Note where it airs - ITV, which is the UK. Are some PBS stations really that current? I know they are close with "Father Brown" even here but I didn't think they were with "Midsomer Murders".

    One of my local PBS stations is showing two episodes next Monday ( actually one, split into 2 pieces). The episode ("They Seek Him Here") was originally broadcast in 2007 but the TiVo says 2015. John Nettles isn't listed in the cast even though he was still the lead at that time.

    I don't know the answer, but I do know that the reason given is sometimes bogus. In other words, "duplicate" is sometimes not really the reason.

    For the benefit of those who are unfamiliar with PBS scheduling... Not all PBS stations show the same shows at the same time. The Houston area PBS station airs shows two weeks after they start appearing on other PBS stations. Unless it's something *really* big such as Sherlock or Downton Abbey. So it is quite possible your guide is showing something completely different.

    My guide is showing "The House in the Woods" on April 22th. I've been watching Midsomer Murders on Netflix and waiting for season 19 to air in the US (it's already aired in the UK). I set the One Pass up to record new & reruns because I didn't know if the TiVo would consider it new or a rerun. I've run into that problem with other BBCA shows where it's the first run in the US, but TiVo thinks it's a rerun because it's already aired in the UK.

    As an experiment, I tried the above suggestions. If I change the OP to recordings and not streaming, new & reruns, the show still isn't selected to record. If I leave it as record and streaming, but change it to "everything" the show does get selected. So it appears the TiVo thinks I've recorded it in the last 28 days, but as I've stated I've never recorded an episode of the show.

    Yep I've had two of these in the last couple of weeks - Colony and The Expanse. Both of them WERE in the ToDo and then dropped off a few days before the air date (these are new-only 1Ps). Caught Colony missing and recorded manually but missed Expanse this week, reason given for not recording was 'Duplicate' even though everything looks right in the guide (OAD, season/ep were correct and not dupe etc.). I checked metadata in kmttg and it looks different to me, dunno why the Roamio doesn't think it's a new ep.

    So now all of a sudden my formerly reliable 1Ps are no longer so.
