    Hi,
    Suppose I want to set a Season Pass for a show that is on in prime time and on in syndication. (For example, Friends on NBC is also on TBS and the WB.) Is there any way to set the season pass to only record the episodes on NBC and not record the syndicated ones?
    thanks

    Yes when you go into the season pass manager select the appropriate NBC channel you wish to record from and select first run only and that should record only the new season on NBC.

    As above. The season pass applies only to episodes on the channel for which it was set. So if you set it for NBC it wont record the TBS shows.

    As Luke said, SP's are confined to one station. If you create the SP from an NBC airing, you'll only get the NBC episodes. You can take it one step further by making the SP for "1st run only" eliminating any reruns.
