Jaxson:bazzer: I've told you how to resolve it, have you tried that?
At 7.30pm on Monday I tried taking the series off series link in the EPG. This then took away the S next to the item in the EPG. I then re booked it and it got the S back next to it.
That's 2 hours our from starting so surely that's close enough to work.
It only seems to be an issue on the shows with encore episodes. I went to watch some TV last night and found Hawaii 50 had recorded, just a week later. Some of the encore shows had even, get this, recorded an week later but on the TV3+1 channel so no HD or 5.1, AND obviously they didn't record the first/main instance of the show either. Awesome.
Actually I believe the magicTV box does do the signal sharing to record the buffer to both files. Could be wrong on that one, but hopefully someone with a magic box can share a little light on that?
You can always tell if it's going to work, because the recording shifts from the encore to the first screening. I don't know the exact timeframe (I would assume 7.30pm would have been ok) but at some stage the actual listing in the record list will move. After that is when you need to do it. Always check the recording list. What a hassle though!
I've had TV3+1 record once, and that sucked. I might guess the reason is because there were too many programs scheduled at the time of the encore (which would not have been picked up at booking time because the original time is different).
