you are correct the old SA guide had that feature but the new software does not.
so are you saying your recording two shows and you need to record a third so you want to do it later in that day? If that is the case you should do new and duplicates. What will happen is if you have two series set that third will be cancelled then it will record it everytime its on. The downside is the more it airs the more it will record. Most prime time shows are only shown once per day though, so I don't know how your going to tape it after midnight, unless its a show on a cable network or something like that. Then what you would have to do is go to your scheduled recordings and see what its going to record and delete them before they start. Its a lot I know Ive been doing it for year. I have 2 dvr's which helps alleviate the problem.
I understand that there are several newer releases of the Guide now being used on the Motorola unit. My suggestion would be to find out if the new version has this feature of a simple "record this program on this channel each week at this time". If not, the question is how to get this feature added. It would be nice to know who actually develops the software.
Strange how something so simple, is simply overlooked by the developers of the Guide, when Scientific Atlanta has been doing this for many years.
You should also be able to manage your series priorities to catch your third series in its off-hours. |
If multiple series are scheduled at the same time, you can change the priority in which you want programs to be recorded. From the DVR Menu select Manage My DVR, and then Series Priority to modify. Page 9 on the link below has the steps for that.
