So far the last couple of days my wife's recordings have not been done because the Hopper chooses to record three identical basketball games at the same time.
So how do I fix this? I want to record all San Antonio Spurs games, but sometimes they are simulcast on local network TV, sometimes they are on an RSN, sometimes on ESPN or TNT, sometimes NBATV, and especially as they playoffs are about to begin, they will frequently be simulcast on more than one channel. For example, I can see that tomorrow it's planning to record the Spurs/Lakers game twice at once, both of which say they are on NBATV. But of course I know that they will also probably play this game on FSN-SW and/or a local network KBVO, so it's going to wind up skipping my wife's show tomorrow most likely.
The DirecTV HR24 did not have this problem. It could figure out that they were duplicate and only recorded one copy.
How do I set this thing up to record at most one copy at a time?
And while I'm at it, can I create multiple timers that will favor some channels over others when there are multiples? I used to have the HR24 do this, it would record first on the local network, then on FSN, and then on all other channels, thus if there were duplicates it would pick the best one for me (often the nationals are blacked out when also simulcast on a local channel, which is far more annoying since it'll consume a tuner to record black screen or "this showing is not available in your area").
