Recording Conflict

Sometimes when watching a show the PVR will suddenly and unexpectedly change channels to record a show and won't let you back to the show unless you cancel a recording which can cause you to miss some of what you are watching, or cancel something you wanted to see. Is there anyway to prevent this?

Re: Recording Conflict

Will switching the box and cancelling fix it? And what question are you talking about?

Hello tmonthy12

Have you tried rebooting the box or exchanging it? Sometimes this may fix it.

Re: Recording Conflict

I think it can only record two shows at once, but it just changes unexpectedly to record, how can you prevent this?

Hello tmothy12

Sorry using my phone my bad lol.

You can't prevent this from what I know. I does this to me as well. It will switch to one of the recordings an won't let u switch back unless u cancel the recording. It a lame setting which I hope changes soon. I thought maybe a reboot would work but doesn't. I guess Rogers should fix this as well.

Re: Recording Conflict

You said I can prevent this, but how?

Edit: You changed it. 

Ok, I'll just try not to schedule more than one thing at a time.

Re: Recording Conflict

it cant be fixed, rogers only allows you to record 2 shows at one time, you can watch a 3rd show that has already been programmed, but not another live show, this is something that rogers cant change, their receivers can only record 2 at a time, and then you cant watch anything else live, rogers needs to get receivers like the competitor has, where you can record up to 4 shows at once....

Re: Recording Conflict

I know, it's just annoying when it suddenly unexpectedly changes and you are caught off guard and have to cancel a recording and miss some of what you were watching.
