On countour 2 DVR from Cox, you can no longer select a specific network or channel. This causes RE-RUNS showing on different odd networks to be recorded- several times a day for several days sometimes!. How do you specify only one channel like we used to be able to do.
Thank you for your link but this does not correct the long standing (other searches from long ago) problem that Cox no longer offers a specific station when recording a series new episodes only.
So, for example, if I record Blue Bloods and say new episodes only it records the Friday night 10 pm correctly when it is a new episode, but when a lesser station starts showing all day shows of re-runs (may be new to them) it records all of them all day. Now also it is happening with "The Neighborhood'..Very frustrating having all these re-runs being recorded. In today's day and age one would think Cox could fix this issue or at least put back the option to select a specific station for new shows only.
There is NO "only this channel" anymore here in CT--that is our problem
Tiffany you are partially correct with one small but very important direction. In order for the option for "insert name of channel" to appear, you have to be on the channel and show you are trying to record for a specific channel. When Cox exchanged my box, they told me to use the microphone and say the show I wanted>select the show>select record> and the options you mentioned were available EXCEPT on the channel you only get SD/HD.
I have experimented several ways and the only way to get the "this channel option" is if you are on the channel and show. That pretty much defeats the "it is easy to re-enter all your programs you want to record with the microphone" as the Cox rep said. So, I guess my only option is to wait and see when odd stations start to record old shows they designate as new is to find the show itself on the channel I want (hopefully it is not between seasons) and do the record on the show itself so I get the channel option. Maybe a refining of the programming needs to be tweaked.
Thank you Tiffany but the Cloud DVR does not have a clock...maybe some day or hoping this one lasts a long time.
