How to Limit the Number of Episodes Recorded

Set a maximum number of episodes within a series that your PVR will record and store. Series recording now has an additional option that allows you to set a maximum number of episodes you wish to record on your PVR.

You can now set the number of episodes that you wish to record by pressing the Change Settings button.

The keep additional options are as follows:

You can now specify how many episodes of a recorded series to keep on the PVR before deleting:

  • 1 latest episode
  • 2 latest episodes
  • 3 latest episodes
  • 5 latest episodes
  • 7 latest episodes
  • 14 latest episodes

Note:

You can still specify a specific episode to not be erased by pressing the do not erase until I erase option. Once your PVR reaches the episode limit you choose for that series, new series episodes will continue to record by replacing the oldest episode recording that has not been set to "keep until I delete". If all episodes are marked "keep until I delete" no new episode will be recorded beyond the series limit you have set.

How to Set a Recording Priority in Case of Conflicts

  7. Use the arrow buttons on the remote control to scroll to another series in the list.
  8. Navigate to the up arrow and press OK on the remote control. The series has now moved up one space/spot on the priority list.
  9. Use the arrow buttons on the remote control to scroll to another series in the list.
  10. Navigate to the down arrow and press the OK button on the remote control. The series has now moved down one space/spot on the priority list.
Record or Clear an Overridden - Cancelled - Series Recording

A series conflict icon (crossed-out, three overlapping red dots) in the Guide marks a series episode that was cancelled in favour of another recording. When you select a cancelled series recording in the Guide, a Program Info Screen screen appears.

You can handle an overridden series episode in one of these ways:

  • Leave it as is.
  • If you cancel the other program(not the series recording), the cancelled series episode is rescheduled for recording. The conflict icon reverts to overlapping red dots.
  • Clear the conflict icon to cancel the entire series recording.
  1. Press GUIDE on your remote control.
  2. Use the arrow buttons or CH/PG to highlight the overridden episode, and press OK. A Program Info Screen appears.
  3. To record a cancelled series episode instead of the other program(not the scheduled series), highlight Resolve Conflict, and press OK. A Conflict screen appears. Highlight the previously overridden series, and press OK. The cancelled episode will record and cancel the recording for the other program.
  4. Or, to cancel a series recording, highlight Cancel Episode, and press OK. In the confirmation screen, highlight Cancel Episode, and press OK. The entire series recording is cancelled. All series conflict icons for it are cleared. This does not erase episodes that were recorded already.
