V6 better than 360 when it comes to recordings

I have found that the new 360 box seems to record repeats . With the v6 box you could just record new programs or if you want to old programs too . You also can’t create a wish list .

Re: V6 better than 360 when it comes to recordings

The 360 will record all new shows from the season that you start your recordings from.  Unfortunately, it will also record repeats of shows that you have watched then deleted.  This is a bug that has a fix coming in a future release.  

It doesn't have Wish Lists, but this was not a widely used feature of TiVo and V6. 

I used it though, so I was sad to see it go. My "Christmas Horror Movies" Wish List threw up some crackers!

Re: V6 better than 360 when it comes to recordings

I’m very pleased to hear that this ‘recording repeats’ bug will be fixed, hopefully soon.

This new operating system won’t be accepted by those who enjoyed the very comprehensive series link functions of TiVo.

The handling of clashes is very poor. Set a seventh recording at the same time and the only ‘control’ you have is to decide for yourself which one to cancel. No automatic re-scheduling of repeats or ability to set priorities for clashing series.

That’s only a problem if you’ve watched it and deleted it in that time

It would be great if in future updates they could cut out adverts in recording .

The broadcasters would never allow that

There was a box that did this in the US. The manufacturer ended up in a court battle with the broadcasters, lost & had to drop the feature. It will also become more difficult to avoid adverts on streamed & on demand services in future.

Just fast forward through them. Or on the 360 try saying "skip forward three minutes"

Saying "fast forward 3 minutes"  works better
