Oh yes I can. I just bring up the digital TV guide as normal on the DVD player/HDD recorder with Freeview, scroll down to the Blaze channel and set to record, either single record or series link. Simples :thumbup:

Does the freeview series link also set up a recording for the same show when it pops up in the future?
Sky does but I an not sure it's a benefit. We get Midsomer Murders and Vera episodes popping up every few days!!!

I'm pretty sure it does John. Sometimes you get one or two episodes of a series then for whatever reason nothing for a week or more so I just leave the series link on. If and when the program is scheduled again it picks it up and records.

To be honest, if the series doesn't reappear in the scheduled pre recorded listing after a week or more I tend to delete it as there's little chance of it appearing again.

DES

Mrs S was talking to one of her work colleagues recently who recommended watching DES. As there wasn't allot on last night of interest we thought we'd give it ago so picked up episode one of three on ITV Freeview.

Now I'm no fan of David Tennant but have to admit he is brilliant in this new drama series. We have only watched the one episode so far but are hooked. Highly recommend

Another drama Starting Sunday evening that looks good is called 'US'

We can struggle remembering some of the detail with Morse, Endeavour and Frost type repeats but we will invariably know within the first few minutes if we have seen less complicated repeats.
