I've never got around to asking this question, but feel I know the answer already. I'm not in front of my DVR right now to remember the exact name of the function, but it's the timer "keep at most" or "maximum recordings" function. So, I tend to get into a show once in awhile and want to try it out, so I select "Keep 3 Episodes" maximum option. The problem is when there's a bunch airing within a week. I'll start to watch one of the three and call it a night before I'm done. Next day, it's gone because there's a continuous loop where it's constantly recording the next airing and knocking off my DVR the oldest recording. Is there a way around this? Did I not set it up properly? I hope I'm clear in explaining my concern. In other words, after it's recorded 3 episodes, I don't want it to record anymore until I manually delete one, thus making room for another. Thanks.
