Why are some shows recording twice on my HD DVRs?

We only have shows set to record on one DVR or the other but they record in tandem sometimes and we cannot figure out why.

Re: Why are some shows recording twice on my HD DVRs?

Are your DVRs networked using Whole Home DVR sharing?

Are you sure that the show is not set to record on both DVRs?

You do understand that if you have the Whole Home DVR service each program recorded by either of the HD DVR's will show up in both DVR's playlist?

the weird thing is that the shows are programmed to record only from one DVR.  I do have Whole Home.

As a test go to each DVR and press LIST -> YELLOW -> FILTER PLAYLIST -> LOCAL.  Does the plsylist still shows on both DVRs
