    Just a heads up. I noticed that the new shows on SyFy, Lost Girl and Continuum have old dates on them and they don't show up as a new show.

    they both are made outside the US and shown delayed in the US, so the guide data is not set to the first US air date, just change your recording to record both new & reruns

    Thanks for the heads up. I knew they aired in Canada a week before but it never occurred to me that the guide would have the original Canadian showing.

    Updated my series manager.

    Thanks for the heads up but I am going to move this to the TV Shows forum where subs from all providers can benefit from it.

    Not sure about Lost Girls but Continuum airs in Canada far more than a week before SyFy.

    This past season of Lost Girl was basically aired at the same time as in Canada, but the first season was at least 6 months behind.

    Yep, I changed my Continuum series link to Both. Now I just need to avoid reading about any of the next 9 episodes online until they air, since they aired in Canada last summer.

    Both shows recorded fine for me. They aired on Monday.

    I was set up to record first run only and this Monday's episode wasnt in the to-do list. After I changed it to record both, it is in there now.

    In past years it has been all over the place for Lost Girl. This season so far in Canada eps 1 and 2 have already aired.

    It recorded Monday as new, I see that you are a Direct TV subscriber so that might be the issue. With Dish is is recording as new.

    These SyFy shows aren't the only ones that can get you in trouble if you set your DVR for "first run only".

    I noticed a blurb advertising new episodes of "Holmes Inspection" on DIY. Much to my surprise, the episodes were dated 2009 in the guide! But they are indeed new and DIY is running each episode multiple times which they only do with first-run programs.
