I am trying to record Angels games that are only on the RSN's that I get and ESPN, MLB Network and Fox. This is what my syntax looks like:
AALL ANGELS EVENTS CCHANS 2 700
I want to specify & SPORTS & BASEBALL but cannot find the & symbol to enter.
I do not want it to record RSN's I do not get locally (I.e. 692 Fox Sports West).
How can I use CCHANS to record only the channels I get?
Any other help on setting tis up would be great.
Thanks in advance.
First, the & is not something you enter into the search field. It's the category filters you choose after you tell the machine to do a keyword search. Once you hit that red button, it takes you to another screen to narrow the categories, and you can choose sports, and then it will populate the right could and let you choose baseball.
So for example, enter in "aall Lakers events" and then press the red button to take to the next screen, and then choose sports, and then the next column would come up and then you'd choose the right sport, basketball in this case. The & is actually created by the DVR, not you, and you only see it on the actual search results screen, or the series manager list.
As for your specific request...
MLB network does not have a single game that I have ever seen that isn't also on another channel. And often times games in that channel are blacked out for us so that you will watch the local station. To really make sure it records right, it's going to take more than one arsl. You can do with just one, however, I can't guarantee game search will work 100% of the time because of the cig issues.
Here are the arsl that I have created for myself and work excellent. Remember, where they fall in your series manager list will also have an effect on if they get recorded live, or a rebroadcast due to conflicts. The higher the priority, the more often they will be recorded live.
AALL ANGELS EVENTS CCHANS 2 69 & Sports & Baseball
AALL ANGELS EVENTS CCHANS 692 693 & Sports & Baseball
AALL ANGELS EVENTS CCHANS 206 209 & Sports & Baseball
AALL ANGELS EVENTS CCHANS 245 250 & Sports & Baseball
