Copy serieslink to new v6 box

Hi

I've followed the instructions on how to copy but the process has only copied over 7 (and I have many series links).

I've even tried it a second time but no joy.

Any suggestions.

 

Thanks

Re: Copy serieslink to new v6 box

I've been using it for years and have never got everything copied over.

It always seems to miss out some Series LInks and Wishlists.

I know the Wishlists have to be set to recording - and it does not seem to copy some Series Links if they are inactive - but I've always found active stuff also not copying as well.

It also doesn't copy over NEW links - they seem to have had to be there for a day-or-two.

Ah, that's two little hints I'm glad I picked up. At last count I had 303 series links, fortunately I have them all in an Excel file so can recreate manually if it came to it. And I often wondered how often the backup system ran copies or synched with your box...

Re: Copy serieslink to new v6 box

I was in a similar boat and still finding issues as time goes by.
I had 300+ Series Links/Wishlists and it definitely only copies over a certain amount. About 180 jumps to mind.
I have missed at least 2 new series restarting due to this.
The point of having this is that they lay dormant until the new series arrives so therefore I see no need to manually start housekeeping my Series Links.

The last time I did it it took two attempts (the 1st seemed to do nothing), but on the second go it copied all of mine and that was 250+ Series Links, plus some Wish Lists - as best as I could check they all copied, certainly the total number of series links was the same as on the old box and those I spot-checked were all there.

It can be flaky, and clearly doesn't always work for everyone, but it does (sometimes) work for all series links - there isn't a hard-coded limit as far as I'm aware.
