The Recording Menu

The record program menu is the short menu of options which will appear when you mark a program or series for recording.

Priority has 5 options ranging from 1-Essential to 5-Optional. The 3view box will use this information when it finds it is unable to perform all the recordings you have requested. It works as you would expect, if one scheduled recording is ranked 2, another 3 and another 5 then the first two will be recorded and the last one dropped. The box does not (yet) offer to record any subsequent showings of the lowest ranked show.

Keep will define what is the minimum time a recording will be kept for: from 1 day to 6 days, 1 week to 4 weeks, as long as possible or forever. The 3view box will use this information to decide what too delete first when the hard disk becomes full.

Bonus Before and Bonus After has options: from none to1 to 5mins, 10, 15 and 30 mins and 1 hour. Define how long before the scheduled start time and how long after the scheduled finish time of the program the 3view box should try to keep recording.

Bonus Required lets you set how much interaction the 3view box will get from you with regards to applying the bonus before and after. Try, no prompt will attempt to add the bonus to the recording, however if the tuner is required to record another show then the bonus will be silently dropped. Try, Prompt, as above but if there is a conflict the box will ask you whether or not you want the bonus applied to the recording, potentiality causing part of your other recording to be missed. Required, bonus will be added to the recording whatever happens.
