@Toniroma : I'm not sure why the timeslot option is not available on Ignite either, but until it (or something similar) is offered, you will either need to put up with the "duplicate" recordings and delete them as desired, or set single recordings for the particular programme. Duplicate recordings, on Ignite, at least don't wear out the hard drive of your PVR because they are "in the cloud".
You may also wish to contact CTV (see post 17) since they are partly responsible for not providing a unique title like "CTV News at 6" and "CTV News at 11", etc.
There are other minor issues that Ignite has (as discussed in this forum), however, most people would agree that, on the whole, Ignite is better than digital cable. It can certainly be a source of frustration when it doesn't do what you've been used to doing. That's one of the reasons why I have not yet switched to Ignite.
I've continued experimenting with the Ignite TV Guide and recording functions. I stumbled on a feature/option in Setup, available from ROGERS button. There is an option to set "LABS" on/off. I set it on, and I'm now able to select "only channel xxx" and I believe a few other features I've not seen before. This seems to have resolved my issue of getting multiple versions of a program, especially for those on other channels.
Having said this, I'll admit that in some cases you just get worn down trying to ensure you get the programs you want recorded.
All in, I would say that about one month into ignite after 4 years with Fibe, I'm happy with the switch. The price Rogers is offering Ignite at, while Bell continues it's push to $200+ per customer, is a good way to get new customers. I'm sure with time they will create a more reliable and usable feature set than is available currently. Just don't go overboard on features. One exception is please bring on Amazon Prime.
PS: My wife is happy to just use the voice input. She, and I, are having challenges converting to the new channel numbers.
I had this problem with 1 show so far American Pickers on HISTORY . Deleted the whole series and redid it, the problem hasn't come back (yet)
When I had my NEXTBOX the TV Guide would identify NEW SHOWS and NEW EPISODES is there any plan to do the
same with the IGNITE TV GUIDE.
Problem has been brought to light before and is not a Ignite TV problem. This should be addressed to the networks providing the shows.
When I had my NEXTBOX the TV Guide would identify NEW SHOWS and NEW SERIES is there any plan to do the
same with the IGNITE TV GUIDE.
When you pull up the TV GUIDE and you see the full PAGE the NEW SERIES and NEW SHOWS are not identified
by just looking at the full TV GUIDE screen, it there a plan to change this as with my NEXTBOX is was easy to
see if there was a NEW SERIES or a NEW EPISODE of a show as it was identified on the full TV GUIDE SCREEN.
Way to go removing the “this time slot only” option. I always regret sticking with them... i thought things would be better with the ignite, but ofcourse not! They fix some then mess up new ones!
for past couple of weeks, when I scheduled the recoding of a series, new only, it records the same episode from several different stations on different days. Ex MacGyver is recorded Friday evening, then 2 more on Saturday. Did not do this before. suggestions?
