    My HR34 is set to first run only on recording. But it is recording shows that it has recorded all ready.:confused:

    Ive had mine for 3 weeks now I guess, mine works fine on first run. I currently record 30+ hours a week of programming between OTA and satellite.

    Agreed... As your hr34 gains more data you'll see this happen less often.

    When you set up new Series Recordings the DVR will always record the first showing regardless of whether it's First Run or Repeat.

    Im finding that it records everything with the name of the show.. Example

    I told it to record "Bones" well its recording Bones from every channel I have TBS reruns, Fox new stuff and I think even another chanel... Really I only really asked it to record Fox Bones. In this case I dont mind the other shows because Im trying to catch up but for other things.. im not so sure.

    A few other quesitons Im hoping no one minds me asking this pertains to the HR34 and the DVR guide ETC.

    How does the recording limit work? it says 5 episodes.. but does it stop recording at 5 or does it delete the oldest and record the newest show... so I have the curent 5 shows.
    Yes I know I can increse it to 10 ETC.. but how does this limit work?
    As you can see this really plays a role to my first Q...

    While on the HR34 can I tell it to record a show on my HR24 or do I have to go to the HR24?

    In the list view it shows avaliable capasity.... is this on all of my DVR or only on the local system?

    Is there a way to automaticly change to a station at a specific time? Example tune to the news in the AM at 7am on 13. I dont really need to record it but the ability to turn on the TV and rewind would be cool?

    How did you set up the series link?

    When it hits the limit, it deletes the oldest episode.

    You cannot tell one DVR to record onto another, that is limited to the H21 or higher. Autotune is also only on non DVRs.

    I like to get up in the AM and check either Sports Center or the NHL Network. So the last thing I do before I go to bed is change to one of those channels. When I get up the next day, I've got the previous 90 minutes in the buffer (unless there was some recording activity during the night).
