Hello everyone. I am new to this forum, and I have tried to find answers to the following question using the search, and faqs with no luck.
I like to watch poker shows, but when I put in a keyword "poker", and I choose "first run only" it will still record repeats. It is primarily because there are so many different channels for FSN that run the same show. Is there a way to lock out channels for a keyword recording? Any suggestions? Thanks.
EMoMoney, actually Tivo doesn't look for the word "repeat" at all. Instead it looks at some normally hidden data (if available), namely the Original Air Date, if I recall correctly. If that date is present, and the date is within 14 days from the present day, then it is considered a new episode. If this date is not present, the Tivo will err on the side of caution and assume it's a new episode too.
It's all fun and games, until someone loses an eye.
