Homeland Season 3 Record Season

How do I record Homeland Season 3? I tried "Record Season", but it recorded the first episode of season 3 plus several season 2 episodes.

What model DVR do you have?  You probably need to edit that Series's Recording Option for "First Run Only".

LITZ,  I believe I can answer what happened.  I always watch Homeland and was anxious to see Sunday night premier,  and had programmed it about a week ago for the series.  About last Thursday,  I was checking to make sure I had something set to record on 1 of my DVR units and noticed that I had about a dozen Homelands set to record.  So, I wanted in and deleted the series and waited until late Friday and setup the series again with first run only.  About 10 that night as I was ready to head for bed,  I checked and I had about a dozen episodes setup again.  So,  waited until Sunday around 5 PM and was able to setup the series.  I am presuming the guide had them all considered as new,  but they were last season shows.

Hmmmm, my Genie HR34 recorded only the season premier.  Nary an old episode recorded.

DCD,  U know these DVR units all have a mind of their own.  I have 3 and they all act different.

Actually, the DVR's all use a common brain, but a lot of different users set them up differently.
