New Feature Request: Cancellation Notifications
Posted 07 November 2007 - 08:20 AM
I've had this happen a couple of times, and I know others have too. When Directv changes guide data causing a Series Link show to not record, why not have it send a message/alert as soon as it cancels the show so maybe the person can go in and fix it. Even better would be, if it's networked and connected to the net, also sending out an message to a pre-defined email address.

No I do not think it has been on the Wish List but I would second that emotion.
I'll even take it a step further.
How about if once a day, it looked for upcoming conflicts and popped you a message about all conflicts coming up in the next 48 hours?
That way I could see that because show A is on another day this week, I will miss show B.
Ideally, Conflict Notification Messages could be set to OFF, 1 Day, 2 Days, or 3 days in advance.
If I could just remember to check the ToDo list once a day I could do this manually but I forget to check the 2 HR20's and 1 HR21.

I have found a bit of a work around for this though. Because most shows repeat on cable channels (Do we have to keep calling them that? lol) through the week, set your Series Links for shows on local channels at a higher priority than the ones on the cable channels.
Still doesn't solve the "Program Data got changed, your show didn't record, too bad" problem though.
