.. because those that you get an iPlayer link are not currently available to record.

Strange because it did on odd episodes in middle of series. Nothing else being recorded at same time.

Re: iplayer link / record

You have your series link set to include "recordings and streaming videos", a recording (when available) should always override a streaming bookmark though. If no broadcast examples of a particular episode are available to record, a streaming video link is created as you've found.

What's the specific programme/episode?

It was the latest series of inside the factory. Was just one episode it put the iPlayer link in instead of recording. Guess it was just a software bug.

No bug, just operating as designed. @Ernie_C  answer looks like the correct one to me.

If a particular episode matches the SL criteria and isn't available to record, then a VOD bookmark is the intended behaviour.

If you don't want this to happen, change your SL settings to include "Recordings only"

But it was available to record. It was actually on the night it put the link in. It recorded first epsode, linked second and recorded third. Series is ongoing at the moment.

... then you need to check in recording hiccups why that program didn’t record, if it was actually broadcast.
