Have a couple of Panasonic DVR's and have had recurring problems since 2013 with recording the news at 6pm on TV3. The news is series linked but randomly the DVR's will record the news on 3+1. There are no conflicting programs set to record and in fact one DVR is only set to record 3 news.

I have collated the recordings from the DVR set to record 3 news only, however both units have randomly defaulted to 3+1 on the following dates so far this year.

January 10,11,14,15,16,17,19,30

February 1,2,3,5,12,13,16,20,21,23,25,28

March 2,3,5,6,9,15,17

April 6,15,19

As you can see this is a totally random problem and I believe it relates to the EPG as it's happening on two separate DVRs.

I'm in Central Hawkes Bay with excellent signal strength and quality on UHF, any ideas or suggestions gratefully received.

My Panasonic did the same recently and has also done so occasionally in the past. Was set to record One on series link and it recorded 1+1. No conflicts and no reason it should have. I'm pretty sure it's caused by glitches in the EPG. Darned annoying though because the sound on the +1 channels is only AAC Stereo and only SD picture quality. Only way to avoid it is to use Timer Record instead of Series Link.

Sorry for the delay in replying but thanks vey much for your input, so far this week no problems. Agree with your comment about it being annoying, what's the point of series link if it's so unreliable ?
