I again have issues with lack of repeats, this time on 103 Vuzu Amp.

The Fixer has an express slot, a primetime screening and 1 repeat. How to get away with Murder has a primetime slot, and NO repeats

Bu comparison, Supergirl is being screened 4 times and DCs Legends of tomorrow 5 times in a week.

This does not seem reasonable or logical to me.

Also, The Mindy Project seems to be back, with no repeats...

Another suggestion to solve the space and possibly age restriction issues: Why not use the soon to close pop up channel on 109 for something? Move the foreign series from 102, Vuzic from 103 (using this space for repeats), etc...

I really feel something needs to change, a single screening of a series is absurd.

They've told us they're going to keep using 109 periodically for newer pop up movie channel themes, but I otherwise agree.

Update:

How to get away with Murder - 2 screenings
No change for Mindy.

I agree.

I find it rather funny that people always complain about repeats and repeats yet BB and myself has a problem finding certain repeats.

I for 1. Really like the amount of repeats that used to be on found it very useful

99% there was always a repeat so I could always record what I wanted to

Yep though there's been reason for the more recent changes.
Through the years we've seen on the forum that this is a cyclic problem. Towards the end of each year Hollywood ups it's game and then repeats' space becomes scarce. Then a few months later, a period we should be heading into soon, the productions hit a low peak and all returns more to normal.

There's got to be a way to keep a balance throughout, and I think it's maybe more critical now as M-Net & co. seem to have been increasing the amount of series. Or am I imagining that and it's just more of the content being appealing to my interests?

I think there are more series, and I am not complaining about that, but there has be a way to make it work. Must say, over the last couple of weeks, CU has been extremely reliable downloading everything. However, things happen and I will continue to have back up recordings just in case.

There must be a way for repeats - extra time on channels such as Edge, an extra channel, something...

Yes. There is more series

The only thing I can think of to make repeats a bit easier is perhaps. Add edge+1 or a specific repeat channel for all M channels (vuzu channels too)

But sadly I don't think it will be so easy
