TiVo - what's the point

"Live at the Apollo" is set up on a series link. BBC2HD

Checking the series link at 21:50 last night, it confirmed the next episode to record was "22:00 7th December 2015".

Did dishes. Sat down at 22:15. No sign of "Live at the Apollo" in "my shows". Not a squeak. "Fargo" is recording on one tuner (as set).

This isn't the first time the TiVo appears to ignore it's settings.

Might as well stick with iPlayer at this rate.

Re: TiVo - what's the point

It seems to be getting repeated tonight at 23:45 on BBC1 in case that's helpful.

Have you looked at your Recording Hiccups to understand why it failed to record?

Re: TiVo - what's the point

Ah ! Moronic little box thought it was a "duplicate".

No, I don't know either.

Thanks for the heads up, but once the moment has passed (I was looking forward to watching it delayed by 10-15 minutes) then the TiVo is just a paperweight. I have 4 other ways to get iPlayer, none of which involves a TiVo.

It's usefulness is declining daily.

The annoying thing is I checked before that it was definitely set to record (you can tell I'm an experienced TiVo user) and it said it was. So when was the earth-shattering (and incorrect) decision that it was a duplicate was made ?
