R showing on TV listing

Why does R keep show up on some of the programmes on the TV listing when I haven't pressed the RECORD button?

Re: R showing on TV listing

This means the programme is scheduled to record.

If it's an "R" with 3 circles, that's a series link. One circle is a manual recording. In both cases, the recording will show under "my planned recordings"

Can you post up a photo of an example where you're seeing this? And also the corresponding section of your "my planned recordings" view for the same date/time

Re: R showing on TV listing

Odd. A few thoughts spring immediately to mind...

1: The programme on the EPG has as "thumbs up" next to it - this suggests that at some point it has been recorded, that's how the thumb normally gets triggered.

2: Can you go to "my shows" and see if that episode/programme shows as a live recording at the top of the list?

3: Can you tune to channel 100 and press the "play" button - does the progress bar just show the time elapsed since you've tuned to that channel? Or the whole duration of that "programme" as a recording?

Check your suggestions folder within My Shows.

That would potentially fit with the thumbs-up and apparent lack of recordings.

It can be disabled via the recordings menu if this is the reason.

Re: R showing on TV listing

Thanks I have never seen the THUMBS UP icon.???? and although the R has been showing up on spurious programmes it has never recorded that particular programme.  I noticed that I did have a lot of programmes in the RECORDING HICCUPS folder Is there a way to delete these? I
