    FIA for Orphan Black has failed to find future programing on both my HR34-700 & HR24-500 and it airs next Saturday evening.

    That's a normal search.

    Far In Advance is supposed to setup a working Series Manager for shows farther then 15 days away. So far it is failing on the working part as the shows when they get within the 14 days window of the ToDo List are NOT in the list.

    I've had the SL for Orphan Black for weeks, but the 3/30/13 episode does not appear in my HR34 TDL.

    Is there a way to get FIA to work for shows that run on multiple networks? I was trying to transfer some SL's from one DVR to another this evening to balance things out but some aren't in season and reruns are on another channel than the new episodes but Smart Search obviously pulls only the VOD and reruns. This was also issue for another show that didn't have reruns on another network but still had VOD content so couldn't FIA the new content.

    It either works, (coming soon) at the top, or it doesn't. Nothing you can do about it.

    Is there something we can do for shows that don't show up at all? For example, the other night I looked for Parts Unknown, which will be on CBS starting April 14, no FIA results.

    Easy, go to search, type "parts unknown", red button,all ,it may return no results, choose autorecord, and set it up that way until it shows in todo list, then convert to regular SL. Or even better, search, but type "parts unknown cchans xxx", for your local cbs, then red button, etc....that way it will only match on a channel you get it on. You can do this for any show literally months out if you know the title and the channel it will be on.

    Ok, I think I worded it wrong. I know how I can do it with a boolean. My question is specifically for FIA. I think for a "regular user", they may get frustrated when some things show up, but others don't, especially when a network is running promos for an upcoming series, but more than two weeks out.

    I just checked my Series Links for "Doctor Who", "Orphan Black" and "The Nerdist" since they start tomorrow and I used Far In Advance to set them up. None had any episodes set to record even though there are 2 new episodes each set to air over the next 2 weeks. Yes, their original air dates are listed as 3/30/13 and setting up a new Series Link for each worked just fine and picked up the new airings that are coming up.

    I used one submission for all 3 since they are all on BBCA the same night. Stuart, please let me know if you need 3 separate ones.

    Game of Thrones - HBO-E - FAIL!

    For whatever reason the thing has been stuck on HBO2-W since first setting it up weeks ago.
    Manually set a separate Series Link yesterday for HBO-E, and gave it higher priority, and it hasn't picked up squat yet. (0)

    Had to delete BOTH, just now, and set it up a THIRD time, to make things right.

    After GoT got recorded as SD, I noted that my other FiA shows (Borgias, Homeland, Mad Men and True Blood) were also set for the SD channel. Deleted all from SL.

    Report submitted for GoT. Others redundant.

    Yeah I saw that my GoT was going to try to record yesterday so I deleted that and set up an HD series link.
    A work in progress!

    None of these were caught:
    Orphan Black
    The Nerdist

    Hannibal - NBC - FAIL!

    As it did with "Red Widow" above, it is set to record on the DirecTV provided NBC affiliate(WPMI 15) in the same adjacent market, NOT my actual in market DirecTV provided NBC affiliate. (WXXV NBC 26)
