Series linking on Freeview and Freesat recorders

An issue caused by a BBC systems change that meant viewers may have experience problems with the series linking feature on Freeview and Freesat recorders has been rectified. 

Manhattan T2•R and Plaza HDR•S may have experienced problems with the ‘series link’ function when trying to record on BBC One. Series linking automatically prompts you to record a whole series when recording a single episode. Over the last week, this prompt may have failed to appear. In addition, series already set to record via series link on BBC One may have been affected - with future episodes failing to record. 

This was a technical issue with the BBC’s scheduling data, affecting all Freeview and Freesat recorders.
