recording repeats

Why with the record settings on "New Only" do repeat programs of the same show keep being set to record. which I have to then cancel the planned recordings by hand.

Re: recording repeats

I have both these series links also and have seen the same but I ignore it as the broadcasters update there info a week or so before broadcast and these extra ones disappear.

Re: recording repeats

... because the broadcaster does not supply enough information for TiVo to decide if the program is old or new or a repeat, so TiVo takes the sensible approach and assumes it is new.

What program are you experiencing this with?

I have seen this on the Forces TV channel 'Military Tech Show', but have not noticed the duplicates disappearing by themselves yet.
