Maximum number of recordings

What's the maximum number of recordings ever on your DVR?

 

My VIP1225

203 max.

 

Can't seem to get more on the DVR despite having 50% disk remaining.

No, I mean about a new App coming for that?

Re: Maximum number of recordings

It was posted that an update was being rolled out where a person could select the maximum number of recordings could be set in a series recording.  I don't know what happened to it.  It could be available now, but I haven't checked.

Re: Maximum number of recordings

Probably depends where you are, but I have it here and I love it.

 

I set news-y shows like The Daily Show and The Colbert Report to record new eps only, max 1.  They don't really appeal to me when they're older, so this way I (usually) have a new one -- and only one -- on the DVR.

 

I also like this for recording re-runs of some show that my wife and I like for watching on boring/rainy days.  Combined with series prioritization (which I've been bellyaching about since U-Verse deployed and which I am VERY glad to now see) it's even better, as I can make sure my crappy re-runs never take priority over new stuff.

It was part of the 1.6.2533410 firmware update which everyone should now have.

I haven't taken the time to check because I am happy with the way the system works right now.  Maybe someday the need for me to use these new features will arrive.  But right now I am good to go with the way they have been.
