Repeats for series recording of 'First Run Only'
« on: November 08, 2013, 01:50:40 PM »
I have only recently been using iceTV when I purchased a Humax 2 months ago. In the last few weeks on some occasions I have seen some shows being 'queued' for recording when the tv show in question is marked as 'Repeat'. All my series records are marked as 'First Run Only', so I am stumped as why this is occuring. Its not happening to all series being recorded which have some repeats during the week, just some of these.

Greg, are you referring to Top Gear and Homeland? I can see that you cancelled an episode for each of these shows.

But you seem to have cancelled 2 new episodes. Homeland for 8:30pm Monday is a new episode, and Top Gear for 8:00pm Thursday is a new episode.
cheers

My example was a Big Bang Theory episode being queued for thursday on GO!, when the new episodes are only on Nine. Think this happend last week. If I see it again I'll leave the episode and report again. In some ways this leads into asking for the option of recording episiodes from a single service (eg Nine), rather than a Network as a whole. If I had this, I'd also make use of recording repeats of some ABC episodes on ABC2.


The episodes you picked from my profile were deleted for two reason. Homeland unfortunately was clashing with other items scheduled for record at same time (if only the Humax had three tunners rather than just two). While I think I have seen the new Top Gear epsisodes from Foxtel.
