I am wanting to set-up a series link to record "The Conners" on Sky Comedy. It's on twice. It shows at 8pm on Monday-Friday and then is repeated at 4pm the following day.
I have lots of stuff recording at or around 8pm (soaps and other prime time stuff) and so I went to the 4pm showing and set my series link there, yet it then sets the series link to record at the 8pm showing.
But because I have lots of things recording at 8pm it often means that some stuff won't record (clashes) or it "clips" some shows and then I have to juggle things around manually to record on +1 channels or just not record some shows.
I thought TiVo was supposed to be "clever"/intuitive so I don't understand why it won't record the 4pm showing instead of the 8pm showing when there is nothing else recording at 4pm on any day.
Is there a way I can "force" it to record the 4pm showing, over-riding it's own default recording the 8pm showing? I don't want to do a "manual" record as then I don't have series link for when the programme stops and starts again.
I have tried cancelling the 8pm series link and going to the 4pm showing and setting the series link from there but it always reverts to the 8pm recording which clashes with loads of other stuff.
Any advice? Please help me.
Thanks in advance.
