I want to record a show that is in conflict with two other shows I record. This show is on again one hour later. I try to record the later version but the record menu will only let me record new episodes or all new and other episodes. I've tried both ways but it always shows a conflict symbol.Advice please Any ideas or advice is appreciated.
the record 6 dvr still has conflicts if you don't check 1st run times vs recording an individual program!
A painstaking analysis was performed to decipher the meaning of the above cryptic bit of phrasing.
A Record 6 DVR will have scheduling conflicts if you don't compare the times when the first broadcast of recurring scheduled programs are to be recorded to the times when individual programs are to be recorded! (The exclamation mark would seem to indicate this is a rather important step).
Apparently it doesn't matter how many recordings are to occur at the same time. If you don't do the comparison, you're going to have scheduling conflicts. Does that mean you won't have scheduling conflicts when you do the comparison? What if you have more than six programs set to record? Not to worry. If you compare the recording times, you'll be okay.
Now for some reality. A Record 6 DVR can record both recurring scheduled programs and individual recordings at the same time without any conflict when no more than six programs in total are to be recorded (five if you're also watching live TV). But, all that's irrelevant to my first post.
The OP's post asked for any ideas or advice on how to record a third program that conflicts with two other programs he records. Other, individual recordings weren't included in the scope of his post. My post provided three options how to do what he asked. Option 3 was upgrade to Preferred (Record 6) DVR Service which would accomplish what he wanted to do, with no scheduling conflict.
