Is there a way to change the default recording setting to New episodes only instead of having to a) delete loads of repeats from different showings in the middle of the night or b) change the recording options every time I add a new series link? If not that sucks
Also on my old Tivo box, if you clicked info it showed details of when a programme was first shown so you could tell if it was brand new or a repeat of something shown previously. 360 doesn't seem to have that feature - is it available somewhere on the box?
You can fine tune the recordings when setting them from the EPG
Press the red record button, scroll down and click on Advanced options.
On the screen that opens are various options such as Record, Extra time before and after, Keep at most
Select the top option "Record"
You will then be presented with another screen such as the one in the screenshot at the bottom of this message where you can select New Only.
If you press the contextual key (3 dots) and then info (or use voice control and say 'info') then it brings up a synopsis screen with the year it was first broadcast
It sounds like the OP knows about the advanced recording settings, they were asking if they can set defaults so they don't have to go in and change them every time they set up a recording, like you can on the V6\TiVo, to which the answer is no, it's one of the many features missing from the 360 compared to the V6\TiVo.
Thanks but neither of those provide the functionality I had available in Tivo (where you could set default series link options and see the initial date of broadcast). If its not there then never mind but a shame Virgin pushed me onto an inferior product.

Migrations from TiVo/V6 > TV360 are, contrary to what some VM sales people suggest, completely voluntary. No one is forced onto TV360 unless they move to a bundle which includes services not available on TiVo/V6 - Disney+ being an example.
