    Long time reader, first time poster ! :)

    I have the 970 Version and thanks to this forum it's all firmwared up....(v1.65)

    Great machine, very pleased with it.

    The issue that i have, however, is that when i have two episodes of the same program (in this case Family Guy on BBC3 if you in the UK) which run back to back only one gets recorded.

    *Note - Using Series Link with EPG Link On

    When i look at the guide both have the little timer icon on only one is in red the other is grey, according to the manual grey means using series link and red means that the whle program is to be recorded.

    Anyone have a similar issue ?

    Interesting question.
    As I understand it, the way series link works is it puts the first one it finds in the timer (the one with the red icon). Once that programme has been recorded, then it will queue up the next one in the series. If the programmes are back to back then it seems to be there could be a timing issue here (by the time the first has finished recording, the second one has already started).
