How ya doin? I'm new to the whole DVR thing and I just had a couple of questions.

1. Can I set the DVR to record by time rather than show?

2. Yesterday, the Record light was on on my DVR, but I wasn't recording anything...checked my TDL and there was nothing current. Anyone know what it was doing?:confused:

1. Yes you can

2. It was likely pulling down a showcase

#1 -> List >> Yellow button brings up the 'To do list'. The side bar menu has the option for setting up Manual records.

#2 -> Most likely a showcase being pushed to your DVR. If you want to know what a showcase is, there are numerous threads here discussing them in great detail... From a buggy standpoint, I have also seen the record light remain on after canceling an active recording, usually if it has been 'padded' to record extra time...

And welcome, by the way!
