Auto-recording baseball games that are on both regional Fox Sports and MLB channel
Posted 23 July 2010 - 08:41 PM
The "Record Series" function works for normal tv shows on Fox Sports Net and SportSouth, but for Braves games it's not available as an option. In the guide, when I select a game playing/scheduled on FSN or SS and click the "R" button, the first button press puts an orange R next to the game, but the second press removes the R. When I select the game and view the "Info" screen, the option "Record Series" isn't there. The only options there are Record, View Upcoming, and Done. (Record Series is there for the games on MLB, but...not only are those "Braves game or Another game", they also don't show all the games like the combo of FSN/SS )
This is why I've resorted to the auto-recording Keyword Search, but it has the problem I mentioned above. To use the auto-recording Keyword Search, is there a way to make the system totally ignore games on the MLB channel?
Or how can get the Record Series to work? Or what should I do?
Thanks for your help.

I've looked around but can't find full instructions to do boolean searches. Where can I find them?

Is there a way to automatically record the St. Louis home broadcasters for the Cardinals games in the Extra Innings programming without getting the broadcasts for the opposition teams?

Don't worry...even though 671 is FSNMW, these channels open during games since you have EI.

Actually, my problem is how to record the home broadcast team vs the opponent's broadcast team. For example, tonight the Cards/Met game in shown in the guide on 730-1 and 731-1. One of these is the the broadcast by the "good guys" and the other is by the Mets broadcasters. Not only is the channel info the same as far as I can tell, the DTV website doesn't always show which is which either. In those cases, I am currently just recording both channels to make sure I get the one I want. I was hoping there was a better way.
Away team is listed first. Example... Cards @ Mets ...Cards are 730-1 ...Mets are 731-1.

I would note that DirectTV lists 731-1 in the Cardinals specific schedule "See your favorite team's schedule here" and does not show 730-1. This is misleading at best. The schedule updates are not timely either.
