    I am a new owner of the HR20. I setup first run only series recordings for Dexter and Brotherhood. What does the HR20 consider a first run? My HR20 thinks Dexter and Brotherhood tonight are first runs. Is that because it did not record them since I just got the DVR on Monday and the shows were broadcast the day before?

    When you setup a series link for the first time it will always record the episode you setup the series link from, even if it's a rerun and you have it set to do first runs only. After that it will do first runs just fine, assuming the guide data is correct of course.

    That's how the HR20 is designed.. it presumes you want to record the first episode you use, regardless of criteria. It only affects the first one you select.
