How can I record a program(s) when there is a conflict?

  • The TiVo DVR gives each repeating recording a priority. You can resolve some conflicts using the Season Pass Manager to change priorities (repeating recordings are Season Pass shows and auto-recording WishList shows). To open the Season Pass Manager, go to TiVo Central, then choose Manage Recordings & Downloads, thenSeason Pass Manager. Select the show you know you want to record and move it higher in the list to make sure it has a higher priority.
  • You can sometimes resolve recording conflicts by changing the Stop Time or Start Time Recording Options. (To open Recording Options, select the show from your My Shows List, then choose ‘Modify recording’ then Recording options.)
  • If a single episode of a repeating recording conflicts with another show, you can select that episode in the To Do List and change it independently of the rest of the repeating recording. (To open the To Do List, go to TiVo Central, then choose Manage Recordings & Downloads, then To Do List.)
  • Set up Season Pass recordings with the Recording Option First-run only to record only new episodes.
