View Full Version : Scrubs vs. Sons & Daughters
03-15-2006, 10:59 AM
Anyone else having this problem? This is with a 2-tuner DirecTiVo (HR10-250).
I can't record the 8:00 Sons & Daughters because of some screwy schedules for Scrubs. Here's what TivoWebPlus says when I check the conflict:
Program Date Time Channel
Scrubs 3/21 7:59 pm- 8:30 pm 2-1 KPRCDT
Scrubs 3/21 8:29 pm- 9:00 pm 2-1 KPRCDT
Why isn't Tivo smart enough to figure out this isn't a conflict!! And are there any better resolutions than recurring manual recordings from 8-9 for each channel?

If I'm reading this right both tuners will be recording channel 2-1 from 8:29 t0 8:30.
Just make the second Scrubs start at 8:30.

Yeah, that is the solution...the only problem is I don't control the guide data. I just setup a Season Pass for Scrubs, and let the Tivo do its thang.
But because of a one minute overlap 8:29-8:30, the Tivo won't record the entire Sons & Daughters scheduled 8:00-8:30. I wish there was a way to tell the Tivo to start the second Scrubs a minute late to resolve the conflict.

For the last few weeks, the 2nd Scrubs has been a repeat. Try setting your Scrubs SP to First Run Only.
And if you want to catch the rerun as well, just have it add 30 min to the end.

Next week I think both Scrubs episodes are new...

Ooohhh...you know what...I think this was my bad. I had the Season Pass set to start one minute early. :o
Not sure why, none of my other ones are that way. Thanks for the replies, sorry to waste your time!! :)

I had mine like that to. If you start recording at 8:30 you will miss about 5 seconds of the beginning. That's why I started it early.
I have heard the networks sometimes do this to get Tivo users to tune in live. I'm not sure if that is true or not.
