Recording Option - Record once a week on this channel (1 Viewer)

'Record once a week on this channel', the reason being quite a few prime time shows are repeated upto 3 times per week.

Another more advanced version would be 'record once a day on this channel' with the option to the pick days. Don't know if this is possible though.

    These are already in there (except picking specific days).
    In the record options you may have to scroll down a page to see the other options.

    Record every week at this time,
    Record every day at this time,

    Yeah I did see those, but they aren't very robust, for example, a UK soap like Eastenders is on:-
    Monday 8.00pm
    Tuesday 7.30pm
    Thursday 7.30pm
    Friday 8.00pm

    And depending on whether football is on the above times will be completely wrong.

    Now currently there is no way to economically\easily schedule this, the best at the moment is to use the 'record everytime on this channel'.

    So 'once per day on this channel' would fix that, as it wouldn't matter what time it was on.

    This is EXACTLY what I need. By default the Windows Media Centre did just this as far as I remember. It's crazy that the only option is to 'record every time on this channel' to ensure that a 'variable time' weekly program get's recorded. This (as robomonkey says) then records loads of repeats and clashes with other legit recordings during the week. Madness!
