    The first time you set it to record modern family and castle and such it will record one episode even if it is a repeats for each new series you set up. It won't record any repeats after the first one. Do nothing you are good.

    It does that because it will always record the episode you selected to create the series recording in the first place no matter if it was a repeat or not

    For the sports shows on espn I would do as other suggest and set a keep at most of five for them. Not for series like glee just for sports shows on espn.

    Curtis0620 what should is the settings for No Repeats



    and I saw this First, when you schedule a series it will always record the episode you selected to start the series recording, even if that is a repeat, but subsequent episodes will follow the "first run only" rule.

    I think these where only recorded because you set them up from a re-run. Look at your to-do list and see what is scheduled to record in the future.

    Also, the ESPN stuff will always be an issue. Use the other suggestions to limit the number of recordings to 5 for those.

    Do you have any friends that may be able to help you? YOu don't seem to be understanding or following the advice that keeps being repeated to you. Like for instance if a 2 hour show takes about 1% of free space, then about 200 hours would take 100% of the space...that is simple math..but you werent grasping that very well in one of your other posts. Please find a friend that can help you.

    Excellent idea. One who might sit with you, and go through the key commands with you, getting feedback from the monitor in real time.
