A strange SBR failure!

Red Carpet

A strange SBR failure!

Last night, I had a very strange SBR failure.

Occurred on ch 195 E-tv.

An episode if Covert Affairs, and its repeat overlapped with two other recordings set.

The first occurance was resolved by NOT recording the SBR, because there was a repeat. The repeat was then scheduled and all looked okay, until AFTER the time of the first, which only then revealed the second conflict, leading to BOTH NOT being recorded. 

Granted a very unusual occurence but neverthless it did.

Probably wont ever happen again, and this scenario will only arise with a Record 2 PVR, which are now becoming as rare as hens with teeth.


Of course, had the channel NOT scheduled the repeat of the series episode within 3 hours of each other, the problem would have NOT arisen either ......  It shows that automatic conflict resolution rules involving series recordings and once off settings and TBRs (MRs) are by no means infallible.
