    I have had the movie "Glory" in my wish list for a long long time, well before SE4. It failed to record or show any reason for not recording last evening on TCM. It was a simple wish list nothing complicated.

    I don't know if it has anything to do with my TiVo now being of SE4.

    Anybody have any insights?

    Did you check your recording options for the WishList? You may have it set only for "New" or not have it set to record at all.

    Wishlists can be complicated creatures, because of all the options. If you want a detailed reply, take pics of the settings/options for that WL, and post them here. I've created some intricate WL, and use quite a few myself, and am happy to help.

    Did you know Glory was playing before it aired, or did you find out after the fact?

    No, set to new and marked to record.

    I was looking at the guide and ran across it within a couple minutes of it being over.

    And it may not come back unless they run the Denzel Washington Lifetime Achievement program again. It was obviously two programs associated with each other.

    Can watch it on Prime for $3.99.;)

    As previously stated, wishlist can be finicky.

    My wishlist for Michigan college football has gotten spotty this season as well. It was rock steady for the last few years but now it is not catching the first run live version. It will record a middle of the night version on a different station later in the weekend but that doesn't help with commercial skip and live sports. I am not sure what the culprit is. It is a simple wishlist and I checked the items, they were all included in the first run live version but it did not record.

    You must set WishLists to "New & Reruns" to catch movies. The "New" is mainly for first time "airing" of TV Shows.

    Also, for a title word like "Glory" you should see many matches for this in your "To Do" list.
    You can limit this by placing the last name of the main actor in the actor field.

    Bingo. For recording events that are not first-run (IOW, movies), don't use NEW.

    Great advice. "Glory" (without the quote marks) under either KEYWORD or TITLE KEYWORD, and Denzel under ACTOR.
