3) if you have a program set to record all episodes, and you watch and delete an episode when that same episode is later shown on the same channel, it will record again.
We've noticed a couple of people have reported this issue. As long as the program has proper Guide data, the PVR will not
automatically record the same episode for the duration specified in "PVR Options" (OPTIONS-5).
What do I mean by "proper Guide data"?
If a program has Generic or no data, the PVR doesn't know which episode is airing and will
record it each time, thinking it might be a different episode.
Generic descriptions usually describe the show rather than the episode, or don't say anything at all.
an episode of The Simpsons that says "Homer and Marge Simpsons raise Bart, Lisa, and baby Magy" instead of "While wandering in a field after getting lost, Lisa discovers three teenage girls who are practicing Wiccans..."
Reality TV programs sometimes have this issue, too.
If you notice a particular show that always has this issue, just set the Recording Event (in PVR Options) to only record on a single channel.
For the vast majority of primetime programming, this works flawlessly. Try it out on something like Entourage, CSI, The Good Wife, NCIS
, etc. Do a search for the program, select "Record all episodes", and then go to "PVR" and then "Options". Find the program you just set, and select "View upcoming airdates". You should see the regular "recording scheduled" round record icon only once
for each episode, and then the "duplicate episode" (X record icon) for each of the duplicate episodes. Delete the event afterwards if you don't want it to record!
