Hello All,
 
I recently had an HR44-500 (Genie) installed. My old HD-DVR is the HR22-100, which I have kept to add as part of the Whole Home DVR Service. The HR22-100’s Series Manager could only hold a maximum of 50 series. How many series can the Series Manager in the HR44-500 (Genie) hold?  I have seen different answers online from 50 only to 100 (on HR34) because it has a 1 terabyte hard drive. DirecTV customer service hasn’t been very helpful. They just seem to be guessing from their answers to me and then I had to rephrase the question because they thought I meant how many HD hours of programs the DVR could record.
 
Yes, I actually want the size limit to be more than 50 series because it’s a waste of time and just flat out annoying to have to delete multiple series so you can then add a new series, and then you can’t find the deleted series again until they are about to go back on the air again.
 
So how many series can the Series Manager hold on the HR44-500 (Genie)?
 
:hair:
 
Thanks!

Laxguy is right. And you can add Series that aren't even on the schedule yet as well. I just added Intelligence, coming in January.

And I can't believe how fast we hit 100 series links! We still have to delete stuff.

DVR's and houses. I have found that every time I move up in size, I find a way to fill them.

I still use boolean searches.....allowing me to combine many shows into 1 series link...I probably can get close to 150 shows to auto-record in that 50 series link limit....

 

Let's say you watch several shows on FX like this:

 

AANY JUSTIFIED ANARCHY AMERICANS TTITLE CCHANS 248

 

There are 3 shows in 1 link right there...
