    Ya. Now that you mention it, there might be a conflict that will only allow you to catch a late-night or early morning replay of the game, and EVENT would still catch that, but LIVE wouldn't. You've convinced me to switch. :)

    I can find only one "issues" thread...

    DIRECTV: Cutting Edge Information >
    DIRECTV: Cutting Edge >
    Cutting Edge Issues >
    HR21/22/23 and R22 {CE:20:20} 0x034C - Issues Only

    Is there a non-CE thread for non-CE'ers to post to?

    P.S.
    I couldn't find a report anything like "First Run Only SLs recording every rerun" in the above thread.
    I did report my issue in the thread HR2x and R22 0x034C - Discussion a few hours before -- but it's a Discussion thread, not an Issues thread.

    Again, what are the actual ARSLs that are recording everything?

    Short answer: Seems like all of them that could do it.

    Long answer: These 5 Keyword Autorecords (out of 17 total) I'm sure of. The names in red had reruns recorded.

    AANY Bang CSI Flashpoint Ghost NCIS TTITLE CCHAN 4 (the CSI rerun was CSI: NY)
    AANY Half Medium Mentalist Minds 60 TTITLE CCHAN 4
    AANY Cold Numb3rs Rivers Trauma TTITLE CCHAN 4
    AANY Movies Smallville TTITLE CCHAN 23
    AANY Intent Monk Plain TTITLE CCHAN 242

    Anything on usa is usually them playing games by not entering any thing but generic guide data..

    Medium I am not surprised by.. CBS has it now, and it makes sense for them to try and manipulate people by saying old shows are new so that people will find it on its new channel faster, hopefully...


    As for the others, did u happen to notice what the guide data was? Was it just generic, like NCIS agents solve crime? Or did the episodes have specific episode title and info?

    Do any of your SL's have upcoming repeats that are set to record in the to do list? let me know if you have some, I'll see if I can recreate the issue on one of my units.

    USA has never caused problems for me before.
    Medium I can believe is CBS's doing.
    I saw no generic info in any of the reruns.

    It's late here and I just turned off the TV for the night, but tomorrow morning I'll look for upcoming repeats that are set to record.

    You know, my CSI autorecord has been recording repeats. I just assumed that it was CBS not correctly coding the shows, but maybe that's not the case.

    The auto record is CSI TTITLE CHHAN 46.

    These 6 Keyword Autorecords are responsible for the above reruns. The names in red had reruns scheduled for recording.
    • AANY Bang CSI Flashpoint Ghost NCIS TTITLE CCHAN 4
    • AANY Cold Numb3rs Rivers Trauma TTITLE CCHAN 4
    • AANY Intent Monk Plain TTITLE CCHAN 242
    • AANY Desperate George Lost TTITLE CCHAN 5
    • AANY Californication NFL Penn TTITLE CCHAN 537 540
    • AANY Dexter Nude Nurse Weeds TTITLE CCHAN 537 540

    Looks like I should replace at least these Keyword Autorecords with individual SLs:
    • Intent Monk Plain
    • Closer Raising

    (My individual SLs are not recording repeats.)

    Thanks... I didn't realize that they will record w/o being marked. I'll have to confirm that theory with a something I'm not too concerned about missing.

    I had at least one show fail to be recorded even though it was marked with the red R-in-a-circle.

    I was up to 46 shows on my prioritizer, so I thought it was time to consolidate. I started with TNT and noticed two things. First there is a 50 character limit for the search, so I couldn't get everything for one channel. I ended up with:

    AANY CLOSER RAISING LEVERAGE DARK TTITLE CCHAN 245

    I chose first run only, but regardless it added all the upcoming airings (all of the shows are re-runs now). All my normal series links aren't/weren't scheduled to record anything for those shows. Is this because this is a new series link? I'll just have to manually cancel them because the DVR thinks they're new to it?

    I appreciate any advice/help.

    Regarding the 50 character limit, you're right. That said, I accidentally discovered you can save one space after CCHAN. "CCHAN245" works as well as "CCHAN 245". In the search above, you can also save a few characters by using BAR instead of RAISING.

    As far as repeats go, I've read reports in different threads of folks getting REPEATS on first run SL's, so I don't think it's limited to AUTORECORDS. Not sure who's at fault. The networks, who might be invisibly flagging repeats as First Run, or DirecTV, for not using first aired dates, when available.

    I'm curious, are you selecting "First Run" as part of the KEYWORD SEARCH (via the "continue" screen), or after selecting AUTORECORD, under "Episode Type"? Whichever you are doing, have you tried the other, to see if you get different results?

    Thanks for the tips. I don't think I'll be able to fit Hawthorne in though. ;)

    I already had SLs for those shows set to first run and they all work as expected (nothing scheduled to record). That's why I wondered if it had to do with it being a new SL. Doesn't seem like a guide data issue since the other SLs set to first run for the same shows have it right. I chose first run after doing the keyword search and choosing autorecord from the left menu. I didn't see it anywhere else before that.

    After you hit "continue" on the keyword screen, you can optionally select "Show Type, First Run" to narrow down the search criteria. I don't normally use this, so I was wondering if you might have, and if it made a difference.

    As I said above, I'm not sure that this is an AUTORECORD specific issue, but it can't hurt to report it in the appropriate "issues" thread for your s/w release, in case it turns out to be something DirecTV needs to address. As you can see from this recent thread, some "first-run only" SL's are picking up repeats as well.

    I get it now. I did not do that. Just the search without any other constraints. I'll throw it out there in issues. Since this was my first ASSL, I didn't know if it was an issue or not. Thanks for your help.

    ASSL instead of ARSL? Are you trying to tell us something? ;)

    But seriously, I'd like to know if "Show Types, First Run" works to prevent recordings of reruns. I've been using "Show Types, Series" (plus First Run Only in the recording options) and my SLARs (sic) do record reruns.

    I guess I was going with Advanced Search Series Link. :) Autorecord Series Link makes more sense since the prioritizer lists autorecird instead of the channel.
