    I often will set the timer on a old tv show like METV or Decades (OTA) to get all the episodes that are being run. I see that the timer shows maximum amount of episodes to be 20. So the timer will only record 20 episodes of a series, and no more? How do I get more episodes to the HDD? Thanks.

    I guess I could, but I would then have to pay a separate receiver fee. What I have been doing, if it is an old series I really like and it is on DVD, I generally buy it. I have recorded more episodes of a TV show onto the HDD, but I wonder if I could do two timers to give me more?

    You can edit the individual timer to keep all.

    Yep ... 20 is the default keep. Unlimited (up to the space available) is possible.

    Thanks. I had to dig through options to find I can change 5-10-15-20-25 or # episodes. I presume # means unlimited. I set a couple TV shows to that. Much appreciated.
