    It appears that when wishlist finds a programme that is broadcast on many channels (e.g BBC1 versions) - on some Tivos it records poor BBC1 AD version and some Tivos record BBC1 HD version

    Anyone know why this is?

    In the U.S., the lower numbered channel is recorded. We will un-tick the box removing the lower definition version of a channel so that the high def version get recorded. If Virgin does not offer the option to un-tick specific channel numbers, wishlists also allow you to specify that you only want HD programmes to be automatically recorded. If Virgin does not support that, I am out of ideas.

    No. And neither, it appears, does anyone else's; as proved by posts on the official VM forums and DS.

    So, Jethro's wrong; again :D

    Mine has, or at least had, a habit of recording from AD channels when there was a choice. My wishlists aren't doing much at the moment, so things might have changed recently.

    I set up a wishlist called "pilot" (new only) I had to add a lot of thumbs down for things like "air*" "WWII " e.t.c it picks up the 1st episode of most new shows and isn't overwhelming in it's use of disk space but I've yet to see it record a program on the AD channel

    All my wishlists record from AD channel (85#) as highest channel number
    Just wondering what would cause other boxes to record from HD channel - although in many cases HD channel is also highest number

    AD channels only apply to the main 5 channels (1,2,3,4 & 5) - most other channels default to recording from HD (highest number) version
