Hi, 

 

I have an issue with recording OTA television where the DVR selects the SD channel rather than the HD channel

 

This is happening with the Rugby World Cup currently on in Japan. It is shown here in the UK on ITV Channel (SD) and also the HD version of that Channel ITVHD, although some of the other content and lesser games are also on the sister ITV4 channel.

 

If I trigger the series recording for all games then I either get a choice of the current channel I am scheduling on, or all channels. If I go with the current channel ITVHD then it misses out the content on ITV4 and if I go all channels, it picks everything up, but it records the SD channel in preference to the HD channel - I have to manually select the HD channel for every recording, which is tedious.

 

I am on the laest stable versions of Emby Server and Emby Theatre, using the Emby Guide Data with my Hauppauge dual tuner.

 

Thanks

Set HD source as a priority in Series Option

This is something we'd like to (and plan to) do.  Just not there yet but there is a FR for it.

 

Thanks.

Hi, so you selected all channels when setting up the series recording?
