Recordings don't always record properly. In the past few years using channels, I have had several problems occur that cause my recording to be incomplete:
- Bad or interrupted transmission (weather, power outage, who knows)
- Sporting event goes long, causes show to recorded sports program instead of show
- Breaking news interrupts scheduled recording
- Internet connectivity issue (when recording from TVE)
What I want to do is force the DVR to re-record the episode when it airs again so that I get a complete recording. Currently I delete the recording, but it never ends up getting recorded again, no matter what my pass settings are.
I'm would like an option (in ATV) called something like "Delete and re-record" or "Delete bad recording" that purges the recording and updates the pass to allow for a new recording.
Also it would probably be nice to have some way to see/edit the list of recordings that have been deleted (maybe this is stored per pass?), so that old bad recordings that have been deleted can be scheduled for re-recording.
