Recording a series

My preset recording of a series is now diverting me to BBC iPlayer for the episode that it should have recorded on Tivo, I have watched the previous shows without the need to wait for the pregnant pause while i Player kicks in....................so why now ?

You probably have Recording and streaming videos set. I have noticed that, with this setting on, some shows are available through iPlayer before being broadcast so can be watched that way.

If you only want recordings then change the setting to Recordings only. You can also change the global default so that all future series links are set to Recordings only but you will have to manually change any current links.

Nice to be able to post again, after their mistake (removed by the Censorship team).

I would think that for some reason the recording failed (you can check in "Recording Hiccups" to see why) and that the Series Link is set to "Recordings and On Demand" so the box is falling back to getting the show from iPlayer.

Re: Recording a series

I have reset to recording only thanks, now I have lost the show I had wanted to watch. I will have to go to i Player now anyway.....no worries.

Strange alternatives, why would you want or need to record......or watch on i Player ?... when you can watch on i Player anyway ?

It is a question of preferences. My default is set to Recordings only and this is the primary method I use for any programmes I want to watch. I use iPlayer only occasionally and I doubt if I access any other channels on demand.
