Not recording HD channel

I have series link set up to record Handmaid's Tale on ch141 4HD

Why does it instead record the SD version on ch104?

It's frustrating as hell. I'm not a tech novice and have tried all the settings and it's beyond ridiculous that the box won't record what channel I tell it to. 

It's not even available in HD on catch up.

Hi have you tried going to the modify recordings link and selecting record in HD only. Regards Micky

That is not an available option. "if possible" is selected. 

Incidentally, it shouldn't even be a settings problem at all. If the box is told to record ch141 it should not ignore that and record 104 instead.

Re: Not recording HD channel

Can you either post a screenshot/photo of your series link settings for this one? Or list them out. I'm with other posters - if it's set to record from an SD or HD variant, then record in HD should be greyed out and duly ignored.

That option should only be available if you have record from set to "any channels"

Re: Not recording HD channel

It is greyed out. It says “if possible”.

I’ll post a screenshot tomorrow since I’m not being believed. 

As i’ve said several times already, if I select Handmaids Tale on CH4 HD and series link that then it should record that channel and not a completely different channel.
