I'll have to have a look around our IQ2 for filters! I think it's a later model, as the IQ3 was already available at the time. I have no idea if IQ3 can do it, but given I've read it makes recommendations based on your viewing, I just assumed it might do this auto recording stuff too

Yeah I reckon that could be it : ) Definitely have to ask about this new feature, if that's what it is, it's got me intrigued how I've accidentally(?) set it.

Just in terms of the filters, with my first IQ2 when I put in a new cable modem my Foxtel turned to absolute shite, got blocks all over the screen, cutting out all the time, it was horrendous. So I rang Foxtel, they came in and replaced it with another IQ2, but he said it was a later model IQ2 that had filters on it that eliminated the noise from other devices such as that from internet cable data. It was excellent, it immediately fixed the problem

Called up and extended the free sport deal for another three months. Boom.

I refuse to get Foxtel on principal alone. There's no way I will give Murdoch and his propaganda empire any financing whatsoever.

You could offer me the full package for $10.00/month, I'd tell them to jamb it up their ass.

I would. I mean I'd take it at $10 per month, not "jam it up their ass".

Foxtel send me an email saying 'we've got great things for you to watch - Click record to make sure you don't miss them'.

None of them are on accessible channels. Good one Foxtel.

You're meant to ring up and ask for an upgrade so you can see them?
