Tivo HD - Keep at Most not working?

1245 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Hoosier_1701
I have a TivoHD that I just got setup with cablecards last week. I have several seasons passes setup for shows that I just want the two most recent episodes of, so I have the "Keep At Most" set to 2 episodes. That setting doesn't seem to be working however. All of those shows now have more episodes that I specified. "Keep Until" is set to space needed, incase that matters. My Tivo HD upgraded to 9.1 almost immediately after I got it, so I don't know if this is a new problem in that release or not.

Has anyone else seen this issue? Any suggestions?

Bump. Am I the only one experiencing this? I'm not a TiVo newbie here. I never had trouble with this feature on my standard def DirecTivo. Is this a Tivo HD bug, or a 9.1 bug?
Is there a chance you have the same season pass on two different channels?

For example if you make an SP for Frasier on channel 12 (keep 2) and another SP for Frasier on channel 49 (keep 2), then you will wind up with 1 folder and 4 shows in it.

Anyway, that's how it works on DirecTiVo. I haven't experimented enough with TiVo HD to know if it works the same way.
I had this happen once and it turned out that I had canceled a scheduled recording for the SP and rescheduled it manually. Manually scheduled recordings and recordings from Wish Lists don't count as part of the KAM.

A simple way to diagnose this is to change the KAM to 1. This should delete all but the latest recording. If there are any left over they are not part of the Season Pass.

And neither do Suggestions.
Thanks for the suggestions. I'll check them out after work.
After reading some of your suggestions, I think I know what the problem was. I had created some season passes of children's shows for my son prior to the cablecard installation. They had recorded some episodes. After the cablecard installation was done, I noticed that I no longer had the recording quality options on any channels. I took this to mean even the lower tier channels were in digital now. To make sure things recorded correctly, I canceled and recreated the season passes for those shows. The recordings from the original season passes must not be counted in the keep-at-most list for the current season passes. Once I deleted those old recordings, the number of episodes stayed where I wanted it. Thanks for the help.
