This sounds good but I am not sure how to write it. Here is an
example from tonight.
There are two showings of the game:
1/18 5:00PM 458 GAME12 NHL Hockey - "Toronto Maple Leafs at
1/18 5:00PM 459 GAME13 NHL Hockey - "Toronto Maple Leafs at
The first is the Nashville feed and the second the Toronto feed. I
want the Toronto feed but
my rule is going to record the first. So I want the custom priority
to bump the second game
up one or bump the first one down one.
The other cases when there is only one feed or it is the home feed the
first (or only) will be picked and
it is fine.
To match this case I need more than the subtitle:
title = 'NHL Hockey' AND subtitle LIKE '%Toronto Maple Leafs at' AND ???
I need to increase the priority when the program is also on channel - 1.
I think I could probably do that with a join like Ron suggested above but
not sure exactly how to write that into the Custom Priorities.
