    I've searched here for an answer, but I get too many responses with the search terms I've tried. The threads I've found so far don't have the answer to my question.

    We're trying to set up a series pass for 'Patriots All Access' (WBZ Channel 4 in Boston the market), but the option to do so is not there. My guess is it's because of the way the program is described in the guide.

    We're trying to do it on our new HR34. We love this new Genie and client setup by the way! The new 34 is light years faster than what it replaced!! :righton:

    The program is on at different times during the week as well as sometimes appearing on our Local Channel 38 instead of our Local Channel 4. So, my thinking is a manual record is not an option.

    When we do a search for upcoming shows it's there, but clicking the record button twice only activates and then de-activates the recording.

    Setup up a series link with the following keywords...

    "PATRIOTS ALL ACCESS TTITLE" then choose keyword search.

    Wait for results, then choose autorecord, then what parameters you choose, new-both-repeats, keep settings, etc.....if all 3 words dont appear in that order in the titles of the show it wont record...should get you what you want...

    Correct. That station/network has not properly flagged this as a "series" in the guide information they provide to Tribune News Services.

    Thank you!

    At first it didn't pick any of the 3 upcoming programs, but about 5 minutes after I set it up this way it picked one of them. Because I chose 'Both' in the options I'm guessing it should flag all 3 eventually.

    Thanks again.........
