    Hello,
    I have two Tivo Premiere Dual Tuner DVR's. I am encountering a new problem over the last couple of days. On one of them back to back programs on the same channel conflict with each other. For example
    Program 1 CBS 8pm w/ starting 5 min early and ending 5 min late

    Program 2 CBS 9pm w/ starting 5 min early and ending 5 min late

    Program 3 NBC 9pm w/ starting 5 min early and ending 5 min late

    I used to be able to do this no problem as recording back to back on the same channel were not in conflict, now on only one of my Tivo's it is conflicting. but only 1 the other one works no problem.

    I have rebooted and done a manual call and still having the problem

    any suggestions?



    Thanks

    Tom

    Could you check and report the version for each box?

    See the following:

    20.4.1 Release Notes (Premiere)
    - turned off the troublesome "overlapping recordings" behavior

    Software Vers 20.3.8 added a feature where overlapping back to back recordings on the same channel used only one tuner. There were several bugs in the implementation.
    There is an entire Thread:
    Overlapping recordings cause glitch?
    http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=512819&highlight=overlap


    Software Vers 20.4.1 removed the new feature, due to the bugs. Hopefully it will return if TiVo works out the issues,

    That stinks I really liked that feature it really came in handy to be able to pad most of my recording. Is there any way I can stay at the old version

    No. There are problems with the functionality so it was pulled. I would guess it will be re-released in a future update. It was slipped in previously without an announcement, so it was not ready for prime time.
