    Right, some shows are badly coded and we have to use a boolean workaround.

    Also, I expect that this thread will get moved.

    Maybe someone can correct me if I am wrong, but shows like ESPN First Take, Sportsnation, Sportcenter, etc, do not have a first run indicator thus all occurances will record.

    Do not worry about it. Set "Keep at most" to 5 so you don't run out of room.

    Did you set up these shows before you changed the default settings? If you did, you have to change the settings in each program. Going forward the default will apply to any new programs you set up to record.

    List every single show. Yes every one.

    A reset will not change its behavior based on what you have said so far.

    Sports new shows on espn will always record every episode because the channel lists every episode as first run even when it's not.

    Go into each show in your program Manager and change the settings to First run only.

    All those shows you listed are in re-runs. No new episodes.

    If you set them up from a rerun it may have defaulted to all episodes.

    Go to settings in each show and change to Keep at Most: 5 episodes. Then watch everything you can, delete the ones you've seen before. A reset will do nothing for you in this regards.
