    First_Run = "Y"

    ok so I have this setup and works great for some things.

    I have tv shows like APB and 24 Legacy and they work without issue.

    This one is weird...
    I have the hallmark channel setup to record anything new. Funny thing is it does record new tv shows as you will see in screenshots but it doesn't show new movies. I checked Comcast cable and it lists this show as NEW.... so I thought it would record it but it didn't. so I setup a manual record of it for the wife..

    You need to check if the NextPVR EPG data also showed that movie (or any other movie) as "New". The Comcat EPG and the your NextPVR EPG could be using different sources for the Guide data.

    I think the SD "new" meta data is only for episodic show but I am not certain. The SD JSON does have a premiere flag for made-for-TV movies and mini series not sure if sub uses it.

    so im still learning about this and can you point me in the direction of what to look for? im guessing the source of my tv guide (zap2it) which is what im bringing in. Not sure what you mean by the 2 of them use different source for guide data...

    appreciate it!

    Ok you aren't using SD JSON but how to you know your zap2it movies are marked New. Perhaps make you guide data available.

    ok so did some digging...
    here is an example...
    that hallmark channel like shown above gets some of the shows... and here is the blurb out of the xml (attached)
    I do not see any "New" for these but yet they are set to record...

    I setup soccer to record and it did 3 of them but then no more...

    shooter, the walking dead all work...

    For testing if you have "show new in guide" configured New will show up in the guide . You also need to upload your NextPVR logs to show how the scheduler is using this info.
