Conflicts.

I suddenly seem to be getting more conflicts than ever after setting up multiple recordings from Freesat.

I have a 4 year old LG 42" LCD TV and a similar aged Humax box connected by a twin feed to an outside wall-mounted satellite dish.

Is there any way to bypass these conflicts?

Is there a "list" anywhere which will show me which channels cause conflicts with others?

It's a shame that my Humax box isn't clever enough to warn me of a potential conflict BEFORE I set everything up rather than presenting me with the conflict warning just as several programmes are about to start and leaving me with a flurry of cancellations and missed programmes!

Sticky at the top of this forum is all about conflicts using Humax.
You should only get conflicts using a twin tuner if your trying to record more than 2 things at the same time.
Are you sure your box is actually seeing 2 active connections?

It should be clever enough to identify a recording clash when you set a recording, what it can't do is identify a clash that happens as a result of a programme overrunning it's scheduled end or one that starts before it's scheduled start time. Normally if you ignore the warnings it will sort itself out. Often you just lose a few seconds of the start of a recording caused by a short overrun of the previous one.

It's not hard to predict what recording combinations are possible though - see

EDIT GONZO types faster than I do. To check you have two fully working tuners. Assuming English postcode tune to 108 (BBC1 HD) and start an instant recording, tune to 126 (CH4 HD) and start a second recording. Now enter 102 on the remote to switch to BBC2 HD, check if you can live pause BBC2 HD. If you can both tuners are working.

Agreed!!
@OP: Just press EXIT on the remote to remove the on-screen warnings.

It happens to us quite often on some nights... <Touch wood> we seldom actually lose anything important from the affected programmes and proper 'failures of recordings' are even rarer.
