I can't seem to find a way to tape continuous (marathon) shows. That
is, if a channel will air all Lawrence Welk :(  shows in order beginning
this Friday 6AM and run continuously for 30 hours, how do I get Tivo to
tape all 30 hours?
Wish list doesn't do it.
I supose I could go in and individually tag each show but I'm hoping for
something easier.

Well, if you really want to *tape* the marathon, you're going to have to
get your old VCR out. Now, if you just want to record it, well... A
manual recording as previously suggested is the way to go.

I set up manual recordings in clips of 4 hours each, making transfer
to DVD easier for me.

Manual recording by time and channel?

Why doesn't a wishlist do it? Is the criteria correct? Do you change the
default setting of Keep at most from 5 to All? Is it high enough in
priority to not be bumped by other shows?

from 5 to All? Hmm, I'll have to look for that.

Manual recording, assuming you have enough space for it.

30 hours of Lawrence Welk would make my head explode!
