I have Coronation Street Series Linked 

I choose the one at night but for some reason the catchups in the afternoon also get recorded so I have to delete them everytime. Why?

@Christopher I am getting someone to confirm this is the case, but I am almost certain that this is because TVNZ are passing us unique IDs for each of the episodes. If the content provider sends us the same ID for an episode but played at different times then you would only see the one recorded asset.

I don't think this happens with My Sky recordings so just seems to affect vodafone T.V

Maybe sky have their own I.Ds for their My Sky box.

@Christopher exactly right. We get a metadata feed directly from TVNZ.

@Christopher self-service portal was developed for "The One" standalone VTV. Gen2 is only available on "The One" standalone

so its now November 2019 and still get error message sorry "this programme can not be recorded" on tv one, tv two, tv three, sky 5, basically all the channels. half the time we go to record something it has "sorry this programme can not be recorded"

 

tecnically vodafone may be correct in saying that 90% of programmes can be recorded, but it seems that for tv 1, 2 and 3 - ....and anything in prime time that is worth watching like movies its more like 50% can be recorded.

 

this is like the dumbest, most unfuturistic, thing ever.

 

whats next, turning the colour off and going back to black and white?

 

instead of paying Cliff Curtis to do the ad campaign, someone should have turned this lemon into lemonade.

 

is it really such a big ask to be able to record whatever we want????

 

would we have the same problems on Sky TV?

Brought the VTV gen2 over the weekend, a welcome email from Vodafone mentioned a four month Lightbox voucher being included but I didn’t get one in my box. Is that promotion over now?
