Title: Repeats Only also recording first runs
Post by: paulgraham on December 31, 2019, 12:41:45 PM
Hi, I'm trying to record the repeat of the project but also pick up the first run - any advice appreciated on how I can get it to only record the repeat. I set up a favourite as below.

Thanks, Paul.

Hi Paul,

Advanced Keyword recordings or Favourites (the red text under the TV Guide search box) does have a repeats only option, it's at the bottom.

Yes, I found that, thanks. When I click on it it correctly identifies the recording I want, but the only way to set it to automatically search for it is to click on the blue search image, I then lose the repeats only option.

Hi Paul,

We found a bug in our keywords which we've just fixed.  The keyword icon has vanished for reasons we can't fathom right now and we're flat out on a major project so will have to leave that for later.  But the keyword - repeats only now works.

I think you know this but in case not, choosing "Series" is better than "Title" which could pop up as an episode of another show:

The Advanced Search was set with the following choices:

Choose "Series" and its "Phrase" enter the show name

then
- Repeats and new shows
- Only repeats
- Only new shows

Choose "Only Repeats

They are all set for you:)
