Duplicate Recordings in 'My Shows' for same episode, time, channel on Tivo box

Similar to the other posts, I am getting duplicate recordings each week for a program set with a series link! It shows them both in 'My Shows', one on it's own in the list and then the same recording below it in a folder! I checked the details on both recordings and they are identical! They are for the same episode, on the same channel at the same time, for the same duration!

I did have this series in 'My Wishlist' - it is no longer there now! 

It is occasionally causing clashes with other programs I want to record at the same time!

I have tried unlinking the recordings and setting the series link up again, but the same thing happens!

The first time I deleted the first occurrence in 'My Shows', it deleted both copies! The second time it only deleted one!

This is causing me hassle, particularly when it clashes, but also because I have to delete two items after viewing!

Can you advise / resolve?

Hi rodbrown1949,

 

Thanks for coming by Smiley Happy

 

I'm sorry to hear that you're yet to find a solution to your duplicate recordings.  I'll be happy to help check this out with you.

 

Firstly, have your 'Suggestions' been turned of also as well as the WishList?  To check follow:

 

HOME > HELP & SETTINGS > SETTINGS > RECORDINGS > SUGGESTIONS > ON/OFF

 

It is also worth trying to do a Clear & Delete of  'Prog info and planned recordings'.  To do this follow these steps:

 

HOME > HELP & SETTINGS > CLEAR OR RESET TIVO® BOX > CLEAR PROGRAMME INFO & PLANNED RECORDINGS > OK

 

This process will take up to a few minutes normally but can take up to an hour or so.  It will hopefully clear any unwanted data that may be causing the duplication.  Let me know how you get on, I'm here to help if you need anything.

 

Keep me posted Smiley Happy

 

Collette.

I think you are seing one recording listed twice.

If you record a programme it will not only list on its own or a part of a series link - but will have an entry under each of the wishlists it also matches.

So when you delete one - it disappears from everywhere.

You only need to worry about tuner clashes if it is showing up twice in 'My Planned Recordings'

Thanks for your response Collette, I have switched off my 'Suggestions' and have re-booted the Tivo box! I will try that first to see if it resolves the problem! If not, I will then take the next step to clear 'Planned Recordings' and my 'Wishlist' as it seems a bit drastic at this stage! I will let you know how I get on!
