I have recording options for This Hour Has 22 Minutes and Rick Mercer as to only record new episodes and I keep getting old episodes being recorded. Why ??
This generally falls on the responsibility of the broadcaster, but it's not that black and white. For anything that you notice is missing this, please feel free to fill out our How to report Guide errors form to ensure that we are aware of it. Very sorry about inconvenience this may have caused you, and I hope this helps!
IME, this is caused because the "New" or "Repeat" information is missing from the programs tag.
If you go to your DVR folder and highlight the program in question, you will likely find that the "New" or "Repeat" box is missing so, the DVR doesn't know that it's a repeat and records it by default.
Hope this helps.
thanks. So what is causing the "new or repeat" boxes to not be populated ?
I have it set to record only new episodes, so as you explained, since this isn't populated then it doesn't know. Is this a Shaw problem or the provider of the data for the guide ?
yes it does thank you. I didn't know this form existed and that I could report these errors.
