Asked for password when watching BBC 2 on Tivo

When I go to watch a programme I've recorded from BBC 2, I'm now being asked to provide a password.

Any idea why?

Re: Asked for password when watching BBC 2 on Tivo

I think I saw another thread about this.

It’s because the recording was made before BBC2 HD moved and the ‘old’ channel is no longer there.

It’s not clear from the other thread whether this is as designed or a bug.

Hi there JohnPeters, 

 

Cheers for your post - we are of the understanding that this is what our SuperUser Ernie_C advised in his reply. 

 

We have however gone out to the team who dealt with this to get some confirmation on if this is a bug or indeed designed. 

 

We shall update as and when we can. 

 

Cheers

Hello JohnPeters,

 

This may now be fixed, are you able to check for me?

I have a recording from BBC2HD which says channel 162 from 7th May 2017 - and it plays fine with no PIN required.

I have now played a BBC2 Wales recording and I wasn't asked for the PIN. Thanks.
