I can't record two series links for same event on different channels

Before the upgrade I could program my tivo to record F1 on both Ch 4 and sky F1 at the same time with 2 series links. Now I can't seem to do this.

I have tried setting record all, but this doesn't work. Is there a way to have 2 series links with different channels?

Re: I can't record two series links for same event on different channels

I am having a similar problem with recording Live NBA Basketball which is not always on the same BT Sport channel.  Previously, I could have series links for NBA on BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2 and ESPN but now the series link + only seems to allow me to have a series link for one channel only and not for multiple channels.  Is there a solution to this problem?

Re: I can't record same program on different channels

Hi WavyDavy,

 

Many thanks for your post, welcome back Smiley Happy

 

The new updated TiVo series link can pull all the showings from the single channel and also anything that would be On Demand. This is only available from the channel your selecting, however this may be possible with the manual recordings. 

 

Have you been able to try that?

 

Keep in touch.

Ben

Re: I can't record two series links for same event on different channels

Series Link+ should allow you to set the channel to "All" instead of a specific channel, so you don't have quite the same level of control of being able to choose multiple channels to record from, but it should fix issue of recording from multiple channels, you might just also get recordings from other channels that you didn't want to record from (i.e. I seem to remember that F1 on "All" channels would record stuff from Sky Sports News)

Hello WavyDavy,

 

I hope you were able to get this working but I have added a handy link here to explain a bit more about how the Series Link+ works.

 

I hope this helps.

 

Kind regards

It is not possible to get this to work. Paying customers are being forced into workarounds and hacks but people want to be able to choose which channels to record from and not be forced into using "All channels", for all the reasons previously given. This ability was taken away in the last update. To make things worse when you try to create the 2nd series link, the 1st one is removed without any warning/notification to the user which is very sloppy programming indeed! All of this has been explained in numerous threads now. Perhaps you can escalate this to people who can do something about it or if this forum is not the place to get things done, explain how else to go about it. Thanks.

Re: I can't record two series links for same event on different channels

I agree entirely. I was happy with the way recordings worked before the update, now I get all sorts of recordings I dont want and it is slow as well.

Bring back the old way of programming series links.
