Ok on ESPN HD yesterday started a show called College Football Live. It comes on Monday through Friday at 3:30 pm and 7:30 pm. I have it set only to record first runs but for some reason it records the 3:30 show which is the first run and then the 7:30 show which is exactly the same show it recorded at 3:30. I'm just curious as to why it would record the same show twice in a day when I have it set to do first runs only. Thanks for any responses.

Must have been an issue with the guide data.

Because for some reason on shows like that and NFL Live the guide never really show it as a repeat. What you need to do is set a manual recording for ESPN HD Monday to Friday from 3:30 to 4:00 and that will take care of it.

If you don't know how to do it press menu-->help & settings-->scheduler-->manual and then you set it up in there.
