This is an old piece of kit but I would love to know what is going on. Recently the digital EPG seems to have lost the ability to show the series link option when recording BBC programs. The series link option for other broadcasters still seems to work fine. I have two identical recorders and they are both behaving in the same way. The firmware is I believe the latest for this machine (now obsolete in the eyes of Sony) Version 1.70, H/W 435 Software 1.29. A separate Youview box we have can see the series link for BBC programs where appropriate (for example Holby City) but the Sony boxes can no longer see it. The aerial bringing the signal into the house provides the feed for all the devices which are all tuned using the same broadcast channels from The Wrekin. It sort of appears that the format of the series link data broadcast by the BBC is no longer compatible with the EPG on the old Sony devices. Please can anyone who knows about these things throw some light on the problem. I did ring Sony but the customer service person was completely unable to even understand the problem. Thank you.
