With these +1 channels I’m finding Season pass is recoding loads of the same episode of episodes I don’t want recoded.




For example. First run Grand Designs (I think it is) ends up on TV1, TV1 + 1 and since Choice is also running them I end up with these as well.




Any ideas if I can set up Season Pass to record only on one particular channel.?

There seems to be some issues with the way they're coding the EPG and and the +1 broadcast isn't admitting that it's a rerun. It's not picked up as a duplicate. Can be quite time consuming cleaning up the to do list across three TiVos! Would be nice to find a better way. I haven't so far.

I record heaps of stuff from TV1, all set to "First Run Only" and don't have this issue.

I hate Choice epg as it's not set up (I assume) to indicate reruns and I always get all their reruns.

Gets up my nose enough that I hardly bother with that channel anymore.

Prime also has this problem some times and occasionally TV3 with Third Degree for example.

I've been find stuff on Prime set as First Run record only getting recorded now when they are repeats. Choice has always had this problem so I had to resort to manual recording with them..
