Re: f1 ch 4 not recorded from an existing series link

How many episodes showed as duplicate? There should have been (depending where in the country you are) C4, C4+1, C4-HD, C4-AD?

Re: f1 ch 4 not recorded from an existing series link

Logically, one showing should have recorded and the others binned as duplicates. The first-aired dates and other EPG data looks good to me here (Bristol area) so that all got missed is odd.

If you set your SL to be channel-specific, then yes that would force the box into one particular showing. But remove the option of getting an alternative slot if your chosen channel isn't available by virtue of unavailable tuners.

Re: f1 ch 4 not recorded from an existing series link

my thoughts entirely, which is why i had all selected on the basis that if one doesn't record the next will ! maybe they all cancelled each other out, who knows. i ended up watching the sky highlights but its never as good as ch 4. perhaps i will never know now. I think il set it back to all channels as before and take a chance... its always been ok up until last week.

 

cheers anyway
