Duplicate New Recordings ?
Posted 02 September 2011 - 01:21 AM
I checked the guide & it also indicates this. And the guide does not state New for the repeat.
I deleted the timer & re-enter the program & it still shows up twice.
I realize it's easy to delete or ignore it, but I'm going on vacation in a few weeks & need all the recording capacity I can get, and recording duplicates works against this. If it just started doing this with one program my concern other programs may start doing it.
Any idea why this happening?

The way to get around it is to use the MANUAL setting for the time..that way it will record the 6pm show and not the 8 pm show I assume the show comes on at the same time each week

When the N/A appears in either the Episode Number or Year the event will record. It's better to record a duplicate than to miss an episode.
Yep, that's it. The year was N/A.
I agree it's better to record a duplicate. This just started happening and I'd hate for it to start happening with other channels when I'm on vacation & start taking up disc space.

Go into the recordings list and skip the second recording, deleting the timer is useless because the data the receiver uses to determine status is not correct.
Problem is I can't delete anything when I'm away from home on vacation. I'll probably need all the recording capacity I can get.
