I set WImbledon Tennis series links on BBC 1 & BBC2 but the V6 box added all the red button channels

I set WImbledon Tennis series links on BBC 1 & BBC2 but the V6 box added all the red button channels. Is there a way to stop the V6 doing this as half of the red button recordings did not work and caused the box to lock up slightly.

go into the page where the recordings are listed Mu Sjhowa-Wimbledon. then scroll down to modify series link. then scroll down to channel and set this to BBC1 only.

I set a series link on this and it records 6 of the channels including BBC1, BBC2 and BBC Red Button HD.

If you want BBC1 only then you have to select BBC1 only.

If you only want the HD stuff then a Wishlist may be a better option.

I've found that if i set a BBC2 HD series link, when I check it is the only channel selected.

If i then set a separate BBC1 HD series link, when I check it has all the channels selected and if I change it to BBC1 HD, then the series link I previously set for BBC2 HD disappears.

This all sounds very strange.

That is unfortunately how it works, you are unable to have a series link for the same program on more than one channel, other than by using the "All channels" option, which as you're seeing can record extra stuff. As someone mentioned, might be that selecting the "Get only in HD" option will help, depending on whether the red button channels are flagged as HD or not.

Thanks for that, even if the same content is not shown at the same time on the two channels
