How do I set up and record a entire TV series?

Record a Series

Your DVR allows you to record multiple episodes of a program according to your preferences.

To record multiple episodes of a program, please follow the steps below:

Step 1: Select the episode category to record, such as first-run only or all episodes.

Step 2: Specify how many recordings to save.

Step 3: Specify how long to save the recording—until you erase it or until space is needed.

Step 4: To access advanced series-setup features, like adding minutes to the start and end times and specifying which channels to record, select the Recording Options icon to review all options.

Your Series Recordings will appear in the My Recordings list with the show title as its label. Multiple recordings of the same show will have the same label and will be listed beginning with the most recent first, as the default.

To change your view, use the side arrows on your remote to View by Date, View by Channel or View by Title. You may also modify the priority assigned to a series using the Series Priority List.

To modify the Series Priority List, please follow the steps below:

If there are scheduling conflicts in your series recordings, your DVR automatically creates a Series Priority List. The first series you set to record has the highest priority and will be the one recorded if there is a conflict. You can easily change the recording priority of the series so that the series of your choice is recorded when a conflict exists.

Step 1: Select DVR from the Quick Menu or Main Menu

Step 2: Choose Series Recordings

Step 3: Highlight a program and use the Page Up/Down arrows to modify priority.

Important: If you would like to record two series instead of an individual recording that airs at the same time, you must delete the individual recording from the Scheduled Recordings List. (See View List of Scheduled Recordings section to cancel a recording.)
