TIVO doesn't record BBC HD - shows a recording but just launches iPlayer for a sub VHS playback

New TIVO box. BBC HD programmes appear to record as requested, but when I select one to play from my shows list I am connected, slowly, to iPlayer. Is there a way to stop this and make the TIVO actually record the programme? If I wanted to watch iPlayer I would do that - it's an HD recording I want.

Suggestions welcome!

You need to set your series link to recordings only and not recordings and streaming.

Thanks for your help - not surprised I missed it! When the default setting of record or stream is opened in series link and recording options it also shows 'Get in HD' - 'If Possible'. I took that to mean a selected HD programme would record in HD if it could. Ah well, wiser now!

 

Many thanks - looking forward to sharp pictures again.
