I should have checked the night before if TSN had again made a last minute substitution, but forgot.
You should have checked the F1 thread...
For the last few months, what I do is schedule a series recording (any day, any time) for the Pre
-qualy on whatever channels it's supposed to air on. I believe I now have FOUR different series set and I leave them to record all the time, adding 3 hours so that I catch Qualy. On Rogers, you can't do a series for Qualy (or the race) because the name changes each race, however, you can
do a series for the pre
-qualy and pre
-race (F1 on the grid) because the names don't change. Adding 3 hours after, and 1 hour before (for the race) catches everything, unless the race goes over by more than an hour...
I started doing this once "Manage PVR" went away to be able to cover F1 when I travel and to cover last minute changes. I hope this helps others who watch F1. (Sorry
but that won't work for your 8300HD since you only have two tuners, but if you have another PVR, perhaps you can cover yourself that way)
When I'm home, I may set a recording for the race, extended by 3 hours, so that I'm sure to catch the race finish, if delayed, and the post-race programming.

Complaints to TSN usually go unheeded, unanswered. You can try "Share a Concern" on Rogers... Even if you get a reply from Rogers, they may simply say it's a TSN issue, which it is, but Rogers could perhaps put some pressure on TSN to not change the channel all the time. I see no reason they couldn't commit to TSN5 for F1...
