Just had my Tivo modded and a 1TB drive added.
I cleared all the existing Season Passes.
If I go into the Guide, select an entry and choose 'Record this showing', then the recording appears in the 'Now Playing List' and has been recorded successfully.
However, if I go into the Guide, select an entry and choose 'Season Pass & other options', 'Get a Season Pass', go into 'Options', I think all the defaults are correct, in particular 'Show Type' is set to 'Repeats and first-run' (which I was told about when I picked up the TiVo). I then select 'Don't change recording options'.
The program is not recorded.
So far I have set-up several season passes.
Each one shows in the 'To Do List', however, each one shows 'None scheduled' and each of them says 'There are no upcoming episodes'.
Nothing is shown in 'View Recording History'.
