Re: V6 recording

This can only happen under certain circumstances and if you have padding on all recordings.

You are sure you have the new V6 and not the old TiVo?

Press the Info button on your remote then press the down button four times - you should see five or six tuners there.

Re: V6 recording

Hi Sazwazzi, 

 

Thanks for your post and apologies to hear that you're having an issue setting up recordings via the app. 

 

Are you using the Android or the iOS version of the app? 

 

When trying to set up the recordings on the V6 box, do they work or do you get the same clash errors? 

 

Let me know.

 

Thanks,

Re: V6 recording

As already suggested, this is almost certainly a case of padding causing a reduced number of recordings occurring concurrently.

Say your default settings for series links are set to pad 1 minute before and 4 after (the default default if I remember correctly) and you have three recordings set for 8pm, lasting an hour. You will then only be able to set three recordings for 9pm because the post-padding of the 8pm shows is still being used from 9pm for four minutes and, hence, all six tuners are in use.

I choose the simpler way to resolve this - remove all padding from all recordings.

I guess there are other methods by playing around with overlap protection settings.
