    How do you get the HR20 to autorecord off the higher mpeg4 channels vs the lower number mpeg2 channels. I've deleted the low channels from favs and it still records off the lower channel. Example: Nascar...can be on ABC, Fox, Espn, speed... so can't use CCHAN... Todays race was on espn2 and it recorded the mpeg2 version.

    Also, any way to edit series links to change default channel number without deleting and recreating? It won't let me create a new one, as there aren't currently any shows in the menu.

    First, you will need to set up more than one autorecord as there is no keyword you can use. Eventually, the channels in the 70-80 range will go away but do it with two CCHAN autorecords. One that says

    CCHAN 2 69 (getting local networks)

    and one that says

    CCHAN 200 999 (getting all national channels exluding the 70-80 range).

    Second, no, you have to delete the old one and add a new one.

    Ok, thanks. Hoped there would be a shortcut.
