TiVo not recording only showing catch-up instead

I recently created a couple of Series Link+ and used the default settings. Neither show clashed with anything else I was recording and yet neither recorded. Instead of a recording I got a link to the catch-up version of that show. I found that in order to actually force the TiVo to record, I had to manually change the Series Link to use the specific channel that it was being broadcasted on.

I don't understand, as I have historical series links that I have converted to Series Link+ and they behave as expected (i.e. recording from the broadcast channel)

Any ideas?

take streaming off the the default settings it's not very useful unless you're using it for Netflix or for previously broadcast shows

I'll give that a shot tonight.

I'm guessing that it's a bug, yes? Surely that behaviour isn't correct?

Re: TiVo not recording only showing catch-up instead

I know this is a old post but is there a way to force it to record instead of using catch up without completely disabling streaming? Catch up isn't working right now so of course some of the shows I can't watch due to this stupid decision of showing catch-up on shows i choose to record.

This is very inconvenient.
