Series Link+ Problem - this may be one for the boffins

Jusrt encountered a problem with Series Link+. When I Series Link a sports programme that appears on more than one channel its knocking out the link on another channel. This has happened on Sky Sports and on ITV and BBC with the Six Nations Rugby broadcasts.

Is this a software problem or is it my Tivo box?

Re: Series Link+ Problem - this may be one for the boffins

Might be worth checking the "Upcoming Recordings" section rather than the EPG to see if all the shows are set to be recorded, and also check other series link settings (i.e. If the series link is set to "New Only" and one of the channels is showing repeats then it will only record from one channel), if the TiVo thinks it's the same show (which it seems to if it's clearing the old series link) then it should be recording on all channels, unless you've uncovered some weird bug!

Hi Rose,

You've cracked it! I must have pressed the blue button without noticing, although I think that option can be selected from one of the screens within the series link set-up. Whatever, problem solved. Many thanks for your help. Keep up the good work.

Series Link+ does not allow multiple series links for the same program.

You should set it to Channels= All to catch this situation.

No. I've spotted that before. But this is for separate/different programmes on different channels

Thanks. I've tried setting it to Channels=All but it still removes the previous setting, just retaining the last one I set up. More info please.

There will just be the one series link, but with channel set to all it should record the program on all the channels that it's shown on.

Are you sure - only the second programme shows the Series Link sign in the EPG and when I return to the first programme it's inviting me to "Get a Series Link+" again.

Hi Tavis75,

I think that's cracked it. One or two slight exceptions but on checking the upcoming progs there was only one that wasn't linked although others on the same channel were linked OK.

Thaks for the help

Re: Series Link+ Problem - this may be one for the boffins

Hi again Tavis75,

The other problem I have is shown in the attached pics.

1. Setup

2. Result

I think I must still have something wrong because of the old and future games showing in the Result pic. I only expected

to see the actual recorded games and nothing else. Any advice please.

JimboX

1. Setup1. Setup2. Result2. Result

Re: Series Link+ Problem - this may be one for the boffins

Hello JimboX,

 

Thanks for taking the time to post!

 

Were you able to get this resolved? If so then we would love to hear how.

 

If you set it up to show recordings only then there shouldn't be streams in the folder so please let us know what's happening.

 

Speak soon.
