(Hi Alastair; has it gotten cold already in Scotland?)
... Not really an expert on the PVR feature, since I
mostly perform ad hoc downloads, but:
You can't have "--pvr" and "--pvradd" in the same command.
get_iplayer --pvr "The Code"
executes a previously saved PVR search under the name
"The Code" (though I fear whitespace is not permitted in
a search's filename). OTOH,
adds to the PVR list a PVR search under the name "The_Code";
however the "--pvradd" switch demands a search argument in
the same command.
I am unfamiliar with your OS, but somewhere in your HOME
there should be a directory named "pvr", which contains all
your previously saved PVR searches. You can inspect the
contents of each PVR search with an editor.
E.g. I would delete file "The_Code"
and start anew from the command line (terminal?).
get_iplayer "The Code" --pvradd "The_Code"
INFO: Saving PVR search 'The_Code':
search0 The Code

Usually, the best place to start troubleshooting
would be your user prefs file (options?).
Maybe you have inadvertently set up something
there that's responsible for your current predicament...
As said, not a PVR expert, so perhaps you
should wait for additional input from the real experts :-)
Have a nice Sunday,
