I can't find the old thread about advanced search examples. And, I can't figure out how to restrict a recording to just a specific time.

One example: I want to record NFL Total Access, but when set to series record, I think it records the initial plus the 4 repeats for the day. I just want it once per day.

Is that possible?

Yes, it's called a manual recording.

Menu - Recordings - Manage Recordings - Manual Record.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

that solution is the one I'm trying to avoid.

Why? It does exactly what you're asking.

And can't you choose First Run in a regular SL? Or is the guide data not accurate for that show?

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Not sure if it will get you what you want, but the link is the FAQ for advanced search. Manual recording is the easiest way to do what you asked.

Too much to ask that the guide data accurately reflects what is a "First Run" :nono2:

Thanks, but I've been through the FAQs and the Boolean search tutorial.

The series flags don't seem to be in use by NFL Network or a lot of shows on ESPN.

The manual record assumes the show airs on the same day/time. Which it does not.

Total Access does, that's how I record it. I also record "Around The Horn and PTI in one 1 hour block.

Total Access does at 4:00 PM Pacific Monday through Friday, that's how I record it. I also record "Around The Horn and PTI in one 1 hour block. They are sometimes preempted by a live event so they aren't on at all that day.
