just keep recording over my episodes.... the damn thing doesn't even work. it just keeps recording every episode and deleting the oldest of the 5. set up a SL for the simpsons to record "all episodes" and keep until I delete so that I can keep 5 shows, and when i watch one... it records the next available. so i keep 5 episodes on hand and the to do list isn't always filled with a show thats on 20 times a day. this has always worked on all 5 of my DTiVos... i don't understand how D* could muck up such a simple feature. please.. someone tell me im and idiot and i've been doing something wrong all the time. i've done 2 restores to factory defaults hoping to clear out some bugs.. i only have 8 SLs.. so i know its not that i'm overwhelming the thing with requests.
