Wishlist & series links

Hi. 

I've got a mixture of wishlists & series links setup on my Samsung tivo. I understand this particular model of tivo is now over 10 years old. It's actually the one my grandparents use. I've noticed it's planning to record programs with no series or episode numbers next to them. Which would appear to be not new. As when I've looked at the particular program they haven't done any new episodes for a while. This happens with series links as well. I've got the box setup to record new episodes only. Record new only. Im thinking the receiver can't tell whether its a new or rerun. So records it anyway 🙁. This annoys my grandad. Can this be fixed? My V6 has same issue 🙁

The box records what the tivo software tells it to, its just the service you get, it's not a hardware fault

OK. I guess so. 

Perhaps one of the forum team on here will look into it eventually 🙂

They might be able to fix it.

Re: Wishlist & series links

If I'm understanding your query, this is by design. TiVo uses the episode data in the EPG to decide if a program is new or a duplicate, and schedule recordings accordingly.

If a program doesn't have this "broadcast date" data, TiVo defaults to recording the episode "incase".

The underlying issue is the guide data, which in TiVo land is absolutely central.

Re: Wishlist & series links

Your probably right. 

Let's hope the forum team can get this issue sorted 🙂

Seems like it could be a fault in either the tivo system or the epg guide itself 🤔
