Sony Bravia A9 - Bug - Freesat USB series timer record


Novice Member

I have recently purchased a 48A9 OLED and have discovered an annoying bug with the Freesat USB series record function. Say for example I try to set a series timer record of a TV show aired weekly on BBC1 West Midlands. Rather than recording the selected channel the TV show instead gets recorded on BBC1 NI. Very often BBC1 NI has a different listing schedule and as such I get a different and unwanted TV show recorded erroneously. It is worth noting this problem does not occur for an individual timer record, only a series timer record.

To try and get around this issue I manually deleted all the BBC1 channels in my channel list apart from my local BBC1 West Midlands. This can be done using the channel delete utility. However even with BBC1 NI 'deleted' the series timer record function still defaults to this channel! So it seems the act of deleting a channel only makes it invisible on the EPG, it is still stored in a channel list on the TV and accessible to the Timer record function.

I've tried factory reset etc but to no avail. Any advice would be much appreciated.
