Here’s what happened… I was recording an episode of Married With Children and I noticed that I had too many episodes of that show already recorded, so I decided to remove its schedule. Thinking it would continue to record the current show and then record no more. WRONG! It immediately stopped recording the show at the halfway point (approximately) and started to record the next show from the queue… so I got the 2nd half of Blue Bloods (well actually the last 3/4’s of it).
I dislike this behavior. Both recordings are useless… i.e. incomplete.
Also, I would like to see 2 other things (feature wise):
When resolving recording conflicts… it would be extremely nice if there was a 1 button override… that when pushed would force the recording of the requested show. Instead of making me manually cancel 10 shows from the queue (or how many ever there are waiting for this time slot).
One can move shows to the bottom of the queue manually by cancelling the schedule for the show, then re-scheduling it. This forces the Tablo to move it to the bottom of the queue (since it operates on a 1st scheduled, 1st recorded basis). But there is no easy way to move shows up in the queue (or really to even see the current order of the shows in the queue). So I would like to see a display of which shows are above and below a selected show, and 2 buttons that would move the show up or down in the queue. Of course, the really nice solution to this would be a graphical ordering of the show icons by queue position, then allow the user to rearrange them, sort of like the way that the Roku allows rearrangement of channel icons. Seems like more work, but it is a superior solution, IMHO.
