Hello,
are there any plans for implementing a "priority handling" of scheduled recordings?
Right now I have scheduled a lot of "must see" recordings.
When I browse through the EPG Guide I very often schedule some mopre recordings where I'm not absolutely interested in.
I only want to record this low prioority items if the don't collide with the must see recordings.

Another topic.
When I schedule a series, I press: "record all episodes on this channel".
Hereby very often I got 2 copies of the same series. One at prime time and the repetition in the night.
I think the series are EPG coded via a specific series ID + a episode ID.
Is it possible to process these two IDs and thus get only one copy of the specific series.

Last topic:
Is it possible to concatenate the 2 issues I asked for.
This would result in some sort of "smart priority recording"
If there is a crossing of two scheduled recordings at prime time. Record one at night, eg.

Best regards

Jens

You are so damn right !!

That is something really missing until now.

I think the problem ist that MP ist able to work with more than only one card and that´s the reasen why it´s possible to schedule 2 programms if also they have the same starttime.

I confrim your request in every single letter.

Let´s hope there will be a solution soon.

That 's what I see. I've retired from software development in favour of getting a 1910 gaff cutter back sailing, and as that development was in DataFlex I doubt that it's relevant to MP development.

Yes, it is, since a long time. I've used it for some years and still use it. Only the client plugin was not successfully ported to MP2. One glitch is still existing in the server plugin, you need to trigger the search manually. Normally it should run automatic but this did not work, at least not for me... Even without automatic...

Hi CyberSimian I have done a fair bit of testing off MP2. I had to abandon it because the user interface is a bit primitive in its functionality. Namely, the MP2 guide does not scroll perpetually; i.e. when you scroll up and reach BBC1 the scrolling stops. So, to get to the programmes immediately before BBC1, you have to scroll down...
