How do I set a future recording?

I am going abroad on hols for a couple of weeks and will miss the Europa Cup final, for my sins I am a Gooner.

I have a Tivo V6 and want to record so that I have the option of viewing when I return.

It will be on one of the 4 BT Sport channels which are included in my package.

Problem is that the listings for all channels only go up to the 24th May at present and the match is on the 29th. This will not be updated as I leave in 2 days time.

Is there a way to manually set date and time for recording rather than just clicking on the schedules?

Re: How do I set a future recording?

Thanks for that suggestion. I did try that last year when I was abroad but it didn't want to play.

This year is potentially worse as we are going on a Baltic Cruise and I will only be able to use my IPAD under maritime signal which will not be strong and very slow.

I was hoping to try  and sort it before I leave.

My first recorder was Betamax (shows his age!) and you tapped in a string code that was alien but it did the job!

I would imagine the ship would have WiFi?

Re: How do I set a future recording?

Remote login and wishlists, as suggested by others, are excellent ideas. If I remember rightly, BT Sport is one of the channels that tends to blockfill their second week of listings around Friday.

Manual recordings across all 4 BT Sport channels for the time slot (plus padding) should do but it might be a bit overboard (sorry, all that typing for a terrible pun) Smiley Happy

That is brilliant, I hadn't come across this function before!

Of course I had already set up a wish list for Arsenal but they didn't win the premiership Smiley Wink
