Default Weird recording issue

Trying to record BBC 1 Look East on Freesat 954 (due to the situation re.
Councils in Northants).
Selecting Series does nothing; selecting Single is OK, but if I just flick
through the days setting this for a week the future schedule disappears
after 1 recording is made. This means that I have to set the recording every
day.

On a Hummy Foxsat HDR.

The ability to series record is identified in the EPG. If the EPG
doesn't identify a programme as being capable of series recording then
that option isn't presented to you.

I have never used a Foxsat so can't comment on its behaviour, but I have
a Panasonic Freeview recorder which periodically shuffles up the EPG to
remove the already broadcast programmes, and now and again the future
programmes guide blanks on the screen in front of me. 10 minutes later
it is all back to normal. Go back to your Foxsat a bit later and see if
it is behaving similarly.

People have said that regional news, indeed any news is not regarded as a
series as if you look at holidays, often times and duration change
radically.

OK, worth a try. It's just that the Record tag is removed from the
programme.
It's a damned nuisance, as there's not a lot of time to reschedule it - if I
forget to do it immediately I tend to forget it anyway.

Yes, good point. However, something that has a slot and a title should be
OK.
Same problem with the RB channel - can't set a series.
Oh, also was interested in a programme on a 'cheaper' channel; evenings were
too crowded and daytime repeat wouldn't take the series.
Another one, recently (Hustle on Sony Crime) could do the series but trying
to use the daytime broadcast insisted on also scheduling the evening ones
(even if a repeat) and then flashed up a conflict!
Can't expect Sony to have a grasp on technology!

My Humax records them. News obviously is treated as a series.


Is that Freesat or Freeview?
