Many thanks once more. Strange. If I run the command you give above I get the following
in my pvr-list:-
pvrsearch = --typeradio
fields = episode
search0 = Thursday Opera Matinee.
Surely this is not correct and it certainly doesn't work here.
I had already downloaded the Rossini but had subsequently deleted the record from the
history file and moved the downloaded file in order to test the pvr. Will try again but I have
always added searches to my list using the --pvr followed by the --pvradd as I have
I shall persevere.
