    They don't roll out new software all at once, just be patient. I don't have it yet either.

    Zero Hour was a FIA recording and it worked, even with its announcement of encore performance.

    Both AMC FIA Freakshow & Immortalized failed to record.

    Did the Google form report for each.

    Did notice that with my successful FIAs, that the ID for the channel changes to whats in the Guide, but that the failures don't. So I figure that when the FIA gets into the Guide two week data, that the channel info should update to what's in the Guide in the Series Manager. If it doesn't, watch for a fail FIA recording.

    The Science channel may not have data that far out yet.

    FIA seems to work only with Premier Showings. 'Are We Alone' looks like a hiatus show when I looked it up at the Science web site.

    Nope, it works for shows coming off hiatus as well. It worked for me to setup a new SL for Psych about a month ago.

    Every since 0x67c was pushed out the "watch now" has not worked. I get the message saying my internet connection is not fast enough. I get around 12 Mbps down and 4 Mbps up. Before the download on 2/20 I was able to watch immediately after a very short preparing for playback message. Anyone else see this issue. I have found it on 5 other HR34's but they are all on the same provider for internet and I want to see if there are others with this problem.

    I record all series and season premieres. Unless all five tuners are in use, I get the first episode of all new shows and returning shows. I also pick up movies new to my movie stations:

    PREMIERE Show Type SERIES PREMIERE
    PREMIERE Show Type SEASON PREMIERE
    PREMIERE Show Type MOVIE

    I also have a Playoff catcher:
    PLAYOFF Series Type PLAYOFF

    They all work pretty great and I haven't missed a new show since I started doing this on my Tivo a decade ago…

    Well. I tried this a while back for Game of Thrones. Even though I have only HD channels on any list and have "hide SD duplicates" set, it recorded HBO standard def.

    Not yet ready for prime time.

    Thanks Drew. I'm going to see if King and Maxwell will record. As far as Hiatus shows go, if one hasn't changed the series record options, shouldn't they pick up right where they left off, automagically?

    I already have R & I, Perception, F & B, and Major Crimes in series links, just waiting for them to come back.

    Man, I bet that TiVo is ready to retire then. Is it pre-MPEG2?

    Many remove hiatus shows from their Series Manager because of the DirecTV limits of only 50 and 100.

    Hence my 12 HRs and 600 SLs. I never delete an SL unless I know a show is cancelled for sure. Makes it a lot easier, almost automatic... :lol:

    SInce I use boolean searches for most of my ARSL's, I never take any shows out either unless they are cancelled or I decide to quite watching them. I dont have an exact count, but I expect I record about 130 shows on my main HR2x model.

    Well, I don't. While I haven't had to the hiatus shuffle on my Genie, my two HR24 are another story.

    I successfully programmed series links for Nurse Jackie and Falling Skies even though they were "on hiatus" and no information was in the guide at the time. The Nurse Jackie SL currently has the first 2 episodes of the season in the TO DO list. Since Falling Skies won't be back until June (IIRC) it, of course, has no episodes to record.
