Recording Problem - Records US instead of Canadian Channel
When I try to record a program on a Canadian channel the PVR sets the record to us channel of the same program. Example: this Tuesday @ 8:00 pm I try to smart record The Rookie on channel 34 CTV but channel 59 ABC is set. Is there a setting I've missed?
When you hit smart record, the receiver defaults to "record on all HD channels", and now with the MPEG conversion a lot of the time it's the US network feed, which gets simsubbed and results in losing 5-10 seconds off the beginning of the show. You need to go into the settings of that show recording and change it to the specific channel you want.
Thanks for the info frenchophile. I really don't want to change my LNB till I'm forced to. Being in my south location the old LNB works better. The guide only shows the programs from F1/F2 and never misses a recording (even though it could be a US one). My neighbor has the new LNB and he's missing recordings quite often cause the PVR will switch to a G1 channel which shows up as no signal. I've been going thru my smart recordings and changing them to a Canadian channel only (what a pain). Now I'm getting away from all those damn streaming notices on the eastern US channels.
