As example, a SP of SyFy's Continuum would be hard since none are new. I does usually handle The Daily Show properly, but not always.
On your TiVo, are your QAM channels listed in the program guide or channel lineup? None of mine are. Just my cable company's analog channels (all I am allowed w/o a cablecard). And if the channel is not in the program guide, the TiVo just doesn't let me do either a Season Pass or, as I mentioned, a manual record.
With my DHG, even though the initial channel line up were the analog channels too, I could manually edit them to their HD QAM channel equivalents, and record the shows in HD.
