    I have a show that I'd like to record that airs two different episodes back to back everyday. I played with the idea of padding the end time by +30 minutes. This mostly seemed to work, however, I'm trying to set it up so it'll record the series. I've got my default set up to include "both" and even though it says that "All episodes are set to record", I don't see any other instances of this show on the To Do list. Especially weird is the fact that when I scroll forward in time in the guide and find the show, there isn't any thing indicating that it's going to record.

    Any ideas?

    It takes time for them to show up in the TDL or even the guide with the record symbol. One of the things I miss about Tivo is the ability to find a series if the time or channel changes.

    I don't think it works that well. set up my HR20-100 to record Kitchen Nightmares and it never showed up or recorded anything. But when i went to Guide, it showed the series R indicator. I also told my box to record the planet e arth series on Science HD and it did, 2 shows. Hasn't recorded anything since.

    Not sure if it is me or the box, but I am getting mixed results.

    When you first setup a Series Link it will take up to 24 hours for the ToDo list to populate with upcoming recordings. Other then guide data problems I have never had a problem with a series link in over a year using an HR20.

    Not sure I understand this statement. HR20 records series just fine if they change times or days. Just like a Tivo.

    I guess you never tried to record Blue's Clue or Curious George. :)
