Record Series / Single Ep question

456 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  inkahauts
I've been a tivo user for many years and just recently got myself a HR21, so please excuse me if these are silly questions.

With my tivo I was able to look at episodes of a recurring recording and also record non-scheduled eps manually (i.e. if I wanted to record a rerun of a show that was set to first-run only). I was looking at the episode list for Psych, which I have a First-Run recurring recording set for, and highlighted one ep that I had missed and hit the (R) button. When I did that it set the single recording, but it deleted my recurring recording from the prioritizer!

So, how do I have Prioritizer recording but also add the occasional re-recording?

Second, semi-related issue: I manually added a show yesterday, and it conflicted with 2 series recordings at that time. I had it overwrite Recording 1. This was a HIST recording, so I know it will be rerun later that same night. Should the prioritizer have gone through and rescheduled that series recording for me? I didn't see it. Does it just take a while to do (I know Tivo needed to reshuffle the recordings daily for that to happen).

Thanks for answering my newbie questions...

1. Setting up the single episode should not have deleted the series link. You seem to have found a bug. Please note this problem in the issues thread for your receiver. It is in the sticky section at the top of this forum.

I does not reschedule automatically. It does that in the background, so it may take a bit of time to show up. I've found my HR20 to be reliable in rescheduling, but if it gets too close to the time it needs to record, and you get nervous, go ahead and schedule the single recording. You might try selecting the episode. You should see a menu item for record once (as well as record series). Choose that and select it to record. That may by pass the bug that you found above.
