I currently have service from Shaw - I have two of their top-line PVR's.  I find it extremely frustrating as I try to record the shows I want.  It all seems to centre around the data they have in their program guide.  For example, I want to record Rick Mercer.  I specify "new shows only" but then what is recorded is all of the shows at all times including 4am - and some of those shows are several years old.  I end up with tons of shows recorded most of which I don't want.  Another example is the National on CBC news world.  I would like to record it at 9pm but if I try to record it I get all of the many times the National is played each day on that channel.  I used to live in Regina SK and the local cable company had a "this channel only" and "this time-slot only" specification on its recording function.  This was very helpful..  Can anyone tell me if the Telus PVR would allow me to record only those shows that I want?

Yes, on the our PVR we can set a series recording and you can customize it's settings:

 

  • Time: Any day + (round X;XX pm / anytime / anytime, once per day)
  • Show type: (first runs and reruns / first run only
  • Stop recording: (At scheduled time or you can adjust it)
  • Save: (choose when these recordings will be automatically deleted)
