Re: Stop re recording previously recored programs

Hi Bigfatman,

 

Thanks for coming by Smiley Happy

 

I just wanted to pop by and see how I can help with your query to stop re-recording the same programme over and over.

 

You say you're unable to select the setting NEW Only.  Can you advise what happens when you try to select this option?  Is there a fault stopping this from happening or is it due to the option you prefer to have re-run selected?

 

Let me know and I can help further.

Re: Stop re recording previously recored programs

I guess the OP is wanting to watch old series, so cannot choose New Only.

This means that, after two weeks, I believe, a program can get re-recorded.

Re: Stop re recording previously recored programs

I cannot select NEW as the programmes are not described as NEW although they are new to the channel they are reruns. Im trying to record malcome in the middle on comedy central. I have to select new and reruns or it will not record anything ,im assuming there not categorised as NEW as there an old series ,so when i watch an episode and delete it it records it again so i have to keep every episode ,if i dont they record radomly and you have to search through lots of episodes to get the next in series assuming you can remember what episode you have watched. As theres no option to sort your recordings in episode order. 😞

Re: Stop re recording previously recored programs

Is there an option or setting anywhere thats stops the box from recording previously watched programs. As its also a problem in wishlists etc you watch it delete it then it records it again.

Re: Stop re recording previously recored programs

Unfortunately not, the TiVo wont record the same episode within 28 days of it being deleted but after that it may record them again.

Would be good if you could extend the 28 day rule to be indefinite for specific series links as I have the same problem with Come Dine with Me on Channel 4.

Re: Stop re recording previously recored programs

The best way of doing this would be to manual record using TV guide 

Tivo has a 14 day TV guide and just record the ones you need.
