    Is there a way to limit how many recurring episodes are saved when you manually record? When recording a "series" you have the option to keep any certain number of episodes. (ie:1or3or10) but I don't see that option available when manual recording. I am recording tour de France telecasts but only want to record the 3 hr evening showing and I may not be home to view every show, so I would like to only keep 2-3 episodes on the DVR in order to save space.
    Thanks for any suggestions.

    This could be a temporary fix (I would think) you can go Menu ->Manage Recordings ->Record Defaults and change the Keep At Most: value. I am not sure if that will work. But in theory it would. Then make the manual record series link again so it takes the default values.

    Someone else would/could have a better idea.
