One of the features that seems to have been/still is popular on Tivo/Sky+ is season link where the box records all episodes of a specified programme. Yet this is missing from Freeview PVR's right now. But why? I'd have thought that with the EPG in place, all the software in the box would have to do is look for any programme with the same title and record it. For example, say I want to record every epsisode of Eastenders during the week. I select the programme from the "season record" (or somethign similar menu), and the box then examines the current EPG and sets timers for all programmes where the name matches "Eastenders". When the EPG next updates, the box checks the EPG for any time changes, adjusting the record timers where necessary if the time changes, and checks the listings for any new days on the EPG for that programme. Repeat indefinitely or until user input or lack of disc space prevents continuation. Is that really so hard to implement? Yes in this example you'd probably end up recording the omnibus edition as well (unless it's called "Eastenders Omnibus" in the EPG), but there again, would it take much code to allow a season pass modifier (i.e. never record a programme with this name on a Sunday unless specfied by the user)? So is there something obvious I'm missing, or is someone holding patents that stop the above being done?
