Timer/Dish Pass question
Posted 22 March 2007 - 01:42 PM
When I set up a Timer or Dish pass, what criteria does it use for channel selection?
I mean, does it relate to the guide "favorites" list that is currently in use? Or will it do all subscribed channels? Is there any alternate way to restrict this?

New and All use the channel that you selected to record.

one thing that's happening is my "Spurs" dish pass will consume all three tuners in some cases. For example, the same game may be on a local channel in HD (OTA), also on the map-down channel and on the 84xx channel and it will record all three. I want it to record the SAT channel (SD grr!) since this thing has so many OTA reception problems (backup), but not BOTH of them. would a lock fix this?

On the second question, I just locked a channel that one of my Dish Passes was going to record from, but the event still showed up in the list of upcoming recordings. I did not try and create a new timer to see if the lock kept the channel out of the Dish Pass.
