Quick question HD SD
« on: May 18, 2009, 01:43:52 PM »
Hi

I missed 24 last night because my series record was set for 7HD and it was only shown on 7SD,  I have since changed the series record to any channel. My question is will this mean I end up with 2 versions recording when it's shown on both channels or will it defer to the 7HD showing only ?

Thanks
Mel

Yep, there is (still!!) no preference for SD vs HD for normal series recordings.   But there is for keyword recordings, so I setup keywords for shows that I know Seven likes to screw over (and Ten used to do the same... now they are all screwed over to SD for Ten).
This is my keyword for 24:
24 "Day 7" -"Final 24"

Thanks for the reply, I just had a look at the keyword options if we can have a Quality option set to prefer HD in the keyword setup then why can't the same thing be an option in the series record ? That doesn't seem like it would be too hard to program ???

Thanks fo the info

As we have said in the past there is a lot of background work involved in having the same quality settings from keyword recordings added to series recordings, we are and have been working on this and it should be on the website shortly, stay tuned.

While we cannot guarantee a firm release date we are hoping to have them online before the end of the month.

Thanks for that.

It will be interesting to see how it will be intergrated with existing series recordings.

Changing "Any Channel" to "Prefer HD" on all my recordings that are currently "Any Channel" would be fine for me. I could then change any "This channel only" series recordings to "Prefer HD" where I thought it appropriate.

Yep, would love that option too, keyword recording is a little problematic with picking up things you don't want, such as repeats.
Would love a couple more features while we are at it... a preference for how many tuners your device has, and thus a priority scheme for dealing with overlaps where the number of overlaps exceeds the number of tuners (i.e. give preference to which show you want to purge vs keep in double overlap situations for 2 tuner devices).   Extra points if you can steer any of the "have to throw away due to double overlap" shows to another PVR device that has been setup in the ICE system.
