Sky TV - Personal Planner

What is the function of the Series Link button? It puts 2 green arrows by the selected program.

It will record the whole series of episodes even if they are over several weeks.

  anskyber 13:29 26 Nov 2007

eg all 24 episodes of 24!

That's what I thought. But I expected them to be listed, because they are often on at different times and I need to set the recorder.

I have limited experience of the series recording but I have set Spooks to record in series form. One of the episodes changed in time (because of the clock change) and it recorded fine.

What happens if the timing is all over the place for the same series I do not know, sorry.

The programmes are listed in the personal planner but only after they have recorded which is not a whole lot of good.

I've just checked my sky+ instructions and there is nothing there to help either of us.

I think you will find when you set Sky+ to record a series,say from 1-8 .Initially the first episode will show on the planner with red r (to be recorded).
When it has recorded the next episode will then show to be recorded (with red r) and so on.
Hence if 1 & 2 have been recorded 3 will show (red r).
Episodes viewed are shown as viewed and will remain in planner until deleted or kept,unless your hard drive is full in which case viewed episodes will be deleted automatically.
I gather some people have changed their hard drives to give greater storage,this would for sure invalidate any warranty.

If series link is selected, then it will follow that series irrespective of any change in timimgs. So you won't lose any programmes or continuity. However, if by some change you inadvertently miss one for whatever reason, (ie.unintentionally delete it by mistake)you can sometimes pick up the broadcast on BBc3-4 or More4.

I don't have Sky+, the recorder is a seperate machine.

Not much use to you then.
Sky+ is the best thing since sliced bread!
I would upgrade if I was you and chuck the tapes.
They will be switching to dig anyway in the near future!

"Sky+ is the best thing since sliced bread!"

You're right about that. Can't remember the last time I watched an off air programme!

I even record the news. Do you have any idea how satisfying it is to fast forward through all the politicians, or the party conference news?
