    Anyone know why I can no longer do a series record that was on before? IE, I had Wonder years, on the series record. The system went and decided to do a reboot one day, like a full reboot, so nothing was there. Everything was gone. All favorite channels, all past shows, etc. were gone, so I started from fresh and did the setup, etc. Now when i go back to Wonder years, and try to do series record, it shows the R, then the R))), then it goes away. When I go to try it in the INFO section, it does the same. All other shows I can, just not the ones that were on the system previously before it rebooted!!

    Because it is auto processing your selection.
    Which the default is Record First Runs.

    Since that episode is not a first run, it is not scheduling it to record.

    If you check your prioritizer, you will find that it is your prioritizer.

    Try using the RECORD ALL option when in the INFO screen, and change the option to BOTH instead of FIRST RUN

    On my R15-300, it defaults to Record Both whenever I tell it to record a series. How do I get it to default to Record First Runs then?

    I tried that as well, that is usually what I do. I try not to hit the R. But tried both to see. So I went into info, did BOTH, and then did keep ALL episodes and set all that, and hit record series, and it shows it, but then no R by any of the names. Tried to completely reset and do it again, but nothing!

    No R by any of the names.......

    Is it showing up in your Prioritizer?
    Do you have any of the episodes existing on your hard drive?

    How long are you waiting between the time you set the recording, and you check the ToDo list, or the guide to see if it is scheduled..

    It does not show up anywhere, not history, not prioritizer, nothing. I tried again hitting the R button, it will show up and stay. To record just that ONE episode, so that works. When I try to hit R twice, it does show the R))) for like 2 seconds, then they go away and nothing. Happens the same when I try the INFO approach.

    Well I tried last night too and checked this morning to see, but nothing appears anywhere. I have zero episodes left on my hard drive as I previously did a full restore/reset a couple days ago, so it's pretty much like I just got it, all fresh. I figured I'd start fresh from new since I had issues as well.

    This happened to me when I first got the R-15. The CSR at D* walked me though and I did a total re-format on the drive. Ever since then my R-15 works great!! No hiccups !:)

    When you go to INFO for a program, right below the recording, there should be a button to list for EPISODES

    Could the series not be flagged as a series?

    That is what I was thinking with the Episode lookup....

    The only thing I could guess at this piont, is the R15 "thinks" you have a series link for it... but is just not displaying it in the Prioritizer list for some reason.

    You may be able to try the 2nd RESET option, which is the middle one on the screen (can't remember it's exact wordings)... that will delete all your series links, favorites, ect... but not your recordings...

    To see if that clears it out...
    Other then that.....

    I think it is not showing as a series. I have the same issue with a show I record for my toddler, "The Wiggles". It is on daily on Disney channel so I thought it was a series. I push the R button twice and then the R goes away, every time no matter how I access the screen. I finally manually record as far out as I can. I think that shows that are on daily are not considered "series". That was one feature that "E" did better. You could tell the DVR to record a certain channel at a certain time, no matter what was on the channel. So you could tell it to record Disney at 8:00 am daily. It did not have to be a series. Much more user friendly than series.

    Found it, thanks. Although, why did D* make it so hard to find the defaults menu for recording? This should be something right under the main settings menu or even as an additional option on the record screen.

    I've had this happen too. In the prioritizer it shows NO episodes at all, even though they clearly exist in the guide. Any attempt to set them to record, the (R) goes away.

    Okay, for whatever reason, I cannot find the Default Recording options screen. What exactly did you mean by the "full record menu"? From what screen am I hitting the Info button?

    I've tried hitting the button while on the Scheduler screen, the Prioritizer screen, or after selecting a show from the prioritizer. The closest I get is the settings for the current show--not the defaults.

    Thanks again,
    Merg

    I just had the same issue. Yesterday when I came home, turned my TV on and it was in total reboot mode. Then all my scheduled programs were gone and when I tried to re- record them the system would not let me record a series again.

    What can be done to fix this? Also I contacted "D" and their only response was to totally reset the unit. Which means I would loose all recorded shows.
