Could anyone tell me why I am getting phantom recordings (all the time)???
I look at the box and the red light is on - wonder why as I have no recordings planned for now. Look at the TV Guide and there something is recording, eg The News or BBC3! What? I have not clicked to record these programmes.
Can someone shed any light, please. It is spooky and I don't like it. (NB no-one else has access to the box unless it's the cat trying to keep up with current affairs).
Recording of unplanned shows keeps happening to me too as well as changing the channel to the recording channel in the middle of a program we are watching.Like you they are obscure programmes that we do not watch like 10 episodes of Peppa Pig, youngest in house is 29 and no we are not secret Peppa Pig fans.
I have tried all suggestions from VM but it still continues. This needs to be sorted I am fed up getting told I'm running out of space to find hours of unplanned recordings.
Hmm, if they're taking up space then they're not suggestions, as Frank_GM says, maybe it's a refurbished box that wasn't cleared or it's somehow linked to somebody else's account and you're getting their remote recordings from TV Anywhere.
I'd check the "Series Link Manager" and "Wishlists" to see if the things that are being recorded exist in either of those, or if there are any Wishlists that could be recording them, i.e. a Wishlist for someone that does voices for Peppa Pig etc.
