Does Kyle XY appear in the Guide data of the target TiVo?
Hmm. No it does not appear in the guide data. I didn't think that was part of the criteria for grouping like shows together. I do see how it has some logic though.windracer said:Does Kyle XY appear in the Guide data of the target TiVo?
Thanks for the reply now my next logical question is... how can I make my mpg files into .tivo files and include/create proper header info? Is it possible?windracer said:Nope ... shows won't group unless a) they are .tivo files with the proper episode information in the header and b) the show appears in the Guide data on the TiVo.
So any transcoded video you are sending back to your TiVo won't group.
I politely disagree. I transferred a few older Nip/Tuck episodes that we hadn't seen to another Tivo (had a season pass on the receiving Tivo). They showed up ungrouped. At the time of the transfer, Nip/Tuck wasn't being shown.windracer said:Yeah, so that's why. The software uses the episode ID of each show to group, but if it's not in the Guide data you'll see exactly what you are seeing. As soon as the show appears in the Guide again the recordings will group.
