Re: Celebrity Hunted Series Link+ Not Working?

....it could be because I tried multiple times to set the Series Link hence why the V6 thought it was a duplicate. 

However, the fact remains that even NEXT week’s episode is NOT showing in Planned Recordings unless I select it to record EVERYTHING. 

This all makes ZERO sense because all my other Series Links work fine - it’s just this show which isn’t working....

Re: Celebrity Hunted Series Link+ Not Working?

As an experiment I set up a Series Link+ with the ‘New Only’ option. Here is the planned recording.

You see, yours is also incorrect. The ‘New’ episode is on a Sunday night on Ch4 at 9pm and NOT at 01:34 on Ch 4Seven?!

Re: Celebrity Hunted Series Link+ Not Working?

I think the planned recording is correct as that's the time the programme is due to be broadcast. At 9pm on Saturday it's going to be 'Get Out' on C4.

Re: Celebrity Hunted Series Link+ Not Working?

My box is scheduling S3 E2 to record at 9pm Sunday, Channel 4 but also seeing several more repeats on 4-Seven during the week.. so the SL itself seems to be working fine here.

I've seen similar behaviour before, where a particular showing may have been manually recorded and cancelled, the box then flags that episode as "don't record" which is then picked up by the SL and it's duly ignored.

....the planned recording is NOT correct. Why can't you see that...???????!😠

Riight, lets start this again...........🙄

Celebrity Hunted is FIRST BROADCAST ON A SUNDAY NIGHT AT 9PM ON CHANNEL 4.

Your picture of your planned recording is INCORRECT because :

1. It is 100% NOT recording the FIRST NEW broadcast of this program - it is recording a repeat showing on Monday night at 01:35 on Ch4Seven (the correct NEW BROADCAST is on SUNDAY on CH4 at 9PM!!!!!)

and, 

2. It is INCORRECTLY displaying the program as NEW when it is 100% NOT new - the new program aired on the SUNDAY on Ch4 at 9pm........

I wonder if this is the case then - perhaps because I manually tried to record the program, and then cancelled the recording in order to set up the Series Link but then the box doesn't record the Series Link as per your post above. This is the only thing which would explain it even though this doesn't make alot of sense.....!! Perhaps a bug?

Re: Celebrity Hunted Series Link+ Not Working?

Yes, once an episode has been cancelled manually, AFAIK no series links will pick that episode up and you'll need to set it manually.
In TiVo scheduling logic, a manual recording takes priority over a series link. I suppose it therefore follows that a manual cancellation also overrules.

Given that your manual cancellation has obviously messed up the SL logic for E1, I'd be interested to see what happens if you were to play around with the SL options in time for E2. Try setting C4-only/4-Seven-only/all-channels, and see what gets picked up - if nothing else, it may just get the scheduler to run afresh each time.

...appreciate the response above - very helpful. 😊

 

Will have another play with this tonight and see if anything else gets picked up. Failing that, I'll just set up a manual recording to record anything that appears on Ch4 at the 9pm slot every Sunday night.
