Hi all

I had a frustrating situation last night and wondered if anyone else has come across it.

- We have The Block All Stars on series link, which starts at 7.30pm.
- We have 'extend recording' on so 10mins is added to every recording (the 10mins is not configurable, its either 10 or 0).

Last night 2 suggestions started recording at 7.00pm.  Because extend recording was enabled they both recorded until 7.40pm.  Because this is now after 7.30, the series-linked scheduled recording didn't start, and the show we wanted to record wasn't in favor of 2 shows I didn't want. 

After looking through the menus I see there is an overlap protection where you can set (from memory) whether a recording cuts off or doesn't start, but its only for recordings that overlap by a maximum of 5 minutes.

Has anyone had this happen before, and/or know of a solution other than turning off suggestions?
Thanks

I don't know about TiVo, but when recording two one-after-the-other the Sky recorder cuts off the first show and then starts recording the second. I haven't tried on different channels, but if the shows are on the same channel, then the end of the first show is recorded on the start of the next.

In theory scheduled recordings should always win out over suggestions, but I have found Tivo does unexpected things every now and again.

You could try giving the thumbs-up to programs you have scheduled to record and if things don't go to plan then you have a chance of finding it in the suggestions - a pretty good chance actually with all the +1 channels.




A time-poor geek is hardly a geek at all
