Duplicate Recordings
« on: December 09, 2008, 08:18:40 AM »
I have a question regarding duplicate timers on a channel that has the same show on SD and HD.

I had a series recording set up fo "Show Name" and  had it set to Prime HD but now I find they dont always show it on HD but do on SD.

So I changed the option to any channel and now I get 2 timers whenever it is on both SD & HD.

What I want to have happen is if it is on both SD and HD at the same time choose the better quality HD.

How can I get this ?

This is a current "issue" with the series timers.   There is a feature in the Keyword Record timer searches that does allow you to specify "Prefer High Definition" which have a preference to record the HD show rather than a SD one.

This feature is apparently planned to be moved over to the Series Timers.

But at this stage you may want to try setting a Keyword Record timer that searches for your show name and set the "Prefer HD" option there.

Thanks for that,

should work around the problem till you can select prefered channel on a series recording.
