Virgin keeps recording over existing shows?

Joining in

So this one is kind of specific - I have noticed on certain channels where a program has a particular lack of 'episode' name that if you save more than one, it's the newer version that wipes out the first recording?


Instead of keeping both, the original is just wiped out and it's the new one which replaces it.


This has been going on a long time, and Sky never did this, it kept both. This can be hugely annoying especially when they're a different show, just sharing the same name.


Is this a known issue? A known limitation of Virgin?

Hi Natalie,


This is just a copy paste of recording management, it's not answering my question, which is clearly a bug. Can it be fixed?

Hi Danny_G13

Can you give us an example of this please?
