The Block
« on: August 27, 2015, 10:28:15 AM »
When the new series of The Block (starting September 9) is added to the EPG can it be listed as "The Block" rather than "The Block: Specific Series".

With previous series of The Block a new series recording needs to be created for each new series as they have been listed as specific series. I would like to be able to create one series recording for The Block and it automatically finds all future series as they come along, without having to create a new series recording.

Search-based recordings.

Go to the My Series tab and click on Add New Preferences. Search on Title for just "The Block".

Thanks for the tip.

I'm not sure why it can't be treated like any other series though. For example, Top Gear isn't listed as "Top Gear: Season 7".
Survivor also suffers from this same problem with each new season.

That's because channel nine gives each new series a different name so it appears to be fresh rather than the same old same old.

IceTV isn't constrained by what channel 9 does though. Ice can list it as whatever they want to make their service more useful to their customers.

Hi

This is a case of Ch 9 originally treating shows like The Block: All Stars as separate spin-offs ie. totally new series rather than just a new season.

Once we started formatting it that way, for the sake of consistency, we stuck to it (The Block, The Block: All Stars, The Block: Sky High, The Block: Fans V Faves).

However, as far as we know, the upcoming show is just called The Block, so we will probably go back to that original title anyway.

Or you can do a key word recording of "The Block" which catches them all. This is what we do for Grand Designs, works a treat. Key word "Grand Designs" and "Kevin McCloud" has automatically recorded all the spinoffs so far.
