Tivo recording hiccip - not authorised

Have our box set to auto record new episodes of silent witness.  On Tuesday it recorded the first episode but last night it didn't,  just says 'not recorded, not authorised' & then didn't record any other ones as they're apparently 'duplicates'.

Anyone have any ideas why this happened?

Re: Tivo recording hiccip - not authorised

The "Not authorised", just sounds like a box gremlin that happens very occasionally/rarely and is a PITA when there's no repeats.

On the duplicates question, what episodes is the box flagging as duplicates but would otherwise record? Specific examples might be helpful here.

There were several episodes all on at the same time (typical BBC multi channel thing), so I guess because it was expecting to record the normal one, it classed the others as duplicates. 

And yes, very frustrating because BBC user iPlayer rather than repeats that I could then record...

Ah, I see what you mean. BBC1-SD, BBC1-HD, BBC1-Wales, BBC1-Scotland, etc etc

On the plus side, iPlayer has 720p HD and holds programmes for a year these days.
