What do you mean by too many recording events? Are you talking about all the shows you have the PVR set up to record, or recordings on a specific day?
By "Recording Event", we mean each show set to record.
Keep in mind that the 630 is different from other PVRs in that you can set a single show to record on multiple channels, so it only requires a single "recording event" per show you want.
This is great for syndicated or kids shows that air on multiple channels. With my other PVR, I have to set it to record The Simpsons
on Global Calgary; and then set a separate Event to record on Comedy Network; and then a separate Event to record on NTV; and a separate Event to record on Fox West; and a separate Event to record on Fox East, and so on. They also have to be managed separate (such as to keep them at the lowest priority, or control the number of episodes retained).
With the 630, I toss in a single Event to record on "SD only", keep "14 episodes", and keep it lowest priority. There's always something to watch and I never get conflicts or miss an episode.
Hence the reason I still have not made the switch.
Stay tuned. The HDPVR 630 is still only on it's 2nd software update - there are some big sky enhancements in the next version.
