Wondering if anyone else has run into this...
I've got one of the new HD Home Media DVRs, was hooked up only a few weeks ago, and the other night I was setting up some series recordings, only to find that the DVR won't record some of them?
Searching through the guide, I'd find a show that I wanted to record on a regular basis, and usually under program info, you'll see a "Record this Series" option. However, on some shows, my only option was "OK". There was no option to record the series, even though I verified that there were upcoming episodes in the guide. I checked to see if I was somehow being blocked by a parental setting, but I'm not, because I don't have kids and the parental settings aren't activated on the DVR.
Scratching my head over this one. Why would the DVR only want me to record certain shows? What am I missing here?
Go to the main menu
make sure that all of the setting are what you what especially "channels"
When I want to record a series I always set it up to record that series only at a specific time and channel and to record both new and reruns
That way if the program is incorrectly marked as a rerun you won't miss it
Be sure to save any setting changes you make
Note with the comming channel update you will have to reset ALL you recording settings
Hope this helped
