    Long time Tivo'er just received my HR20-100 Friday. Quick question.

    I added most of our "Season passes" to the new DVR, and I noticed that even though the recordings were reruns they recorded anyway. Is this a guide data problem, or if you setup a series with a rerun, does it automatically record that rerun that you found when searching?

    I hope that makes sense.


    Example: I want to record Mythbusters every week. So, Menu, Search for programs, Title. M Y T H B U S -> select Mythbusters, chose record series and set the defaults to First runs, keep 5 blah blah...

    Now, if that Mythbusters that i found in the guide is a rerun will it be recorded regardless of the series settings because i used THAT episode to start the series, or is it crappy guide data thats having my new series record reruns?

    TIA

    The part in bold is correct.

    It will always record the episode you set it up with... after that is will follow rules to the best of the guide data..
    By the way that's how I have mythbusters set to record and when they have new episodes they just show up in my list..

    Ahhh... this explains why reruns are recording for me. I just set up about 20 series passes and have been seeing some reruns being recorded. Since, only reruns existed last week for most shows, I had to set up most series passes using reruns.
