To add to the above just found another issue.
I've added "Shuttleworth Showtime" to the schedule using the Humax (as a series record) but it's not showing in the schedule.
If I search for the show again it has the icon showing next to it for series record and if I click OK I am asked if I want to cancel the recording.
IF I cancel then click OK again and add it as a one-off recording it does show in the schedule.
No idea what's going on here.
Earlier today and continuing now there are 2 episodes for this 'series' in the next 7 days. The first from 1993 is at 23:00 24/12. The second from 1994 is at 22:30 25/12.Double checked the time and there is only 1 broadcast of this on Christmas day (so far)
It's a one-off so I don't understand why the Hummy gave the option of series or one-off recording.
I don't have CRID display turned on but will look into it.
That's 2 different series;Earlier today and continuing now there are 2 episodes for this 'series' in the next 7 days. The first from 1993 is at 23:00 24/12. The second from 1994 is at 22:30 25/12.
The BBC have made them into a 'series'. They do this every now and again grouping programmes together which were not originally made as a series and broadcast them as a freeview 'series'.That's 2 different series;
Same main character but definitely different series.
I've had a closer look and the BBC have grouped a number of programmes together to form theire 'series' and not just the two Shuttleworths. The first is an episode of 'Over the Garden Wall' and therefore the timer will appear in the schedule as 'Over the Garden Wall'.I've added "Shuttleworth Showtime" to the schedule using the Humax (as a series record) but it's not showing in the schedule.
This is what I was saying in post #6. When I said "Check the when" I meant check the actual time and date of the recording the box lists in the schedule - not the epg entry of the programme you were expecting to get.Just checked and they both have the same Series CRID so I bet that's the issue, by me setting the series record on the show on the 25th it actually set it for the one on the 24th 1st.
But these shouldn't be a series, just the BBC marking them as a series which caused the problem, I was looking for a different program title.
A bit like the BBC and programmes within a series.
CorrectMany series have different title variations within the series - the recent "World's Most Extreme - ####" on C5 had a different #### each week - so there is obviously no reason to believe that a title will be consistent.
So, when you pick a programme in the epg and schedule a series record, but then find that programme isn't tagged in the epg to record: go to the schedule, select the reservation and check what day, time and channel it says. If you then go to that location in the epg (probably earlier than the one you picked originally) you will likely find that programme tagged to record.
