I have a SP for the Simpson's, First Run Only. Tonight, Fox aired two
new episodes, one after the other, but my series 2 recorded only the
first of the two,
Any idea why it didn't record both of them?

Do you pad the season pass?

Oops!.. Just discovered it and came back here to admit my mistake.
1 minute late padding. Caught again by this stupid same-channel
padding bug.
