This seems to be a bit of a recent development for me.
To set the scene ...
When I first got the tivo I quickly discovered that if I told it I liked 3News it would record every single edition - morning, lunch, and the 6pm one ... and if I was really unlucky, also the TV3+1 versions too. And with Campbell Live it would record the morning repeat as well as the evening edition.
Not what I wanted, and I understand partly due to 3's program naming / no repeat indicator / whatever.
Hence I set it up to manually record 3 News from 6pm - 7pm, and Campbell Live from 7pm - 7:30, every week night.
Now we know that Tivo knows whats recording because it'll say, for example - Manual Recording, 3News.
A couple of weeks ago I discover that it's now decided that even though 3News is already recording as a manual recording, it'll also record it as a Suggestion ... annoying. So I thumbs down 3News, sorted.
Tonight, the manual recording is picking up Modern Family instead. Which is fine. Except it's also recording it because of the Season Pass. Yes, it's recording it twice for me at the same time. No, not on 3 and then on 3+1, but both tuners are recording the same channel at the same time for the same program.
Now obviously there's ways around this, although to my mind I shouldn't really have to find a way around it ... so my question is, is Tivo not smart enough to figure out it's already recording the program once, there's no need to record it again? Do others find this happening too?
