Series recordings, only record new programs

It would be nice if when you selected series recording the DVR would only record new shows instead of every time that show comes on.  This would especially be helpful when previous shows in a series are shown as a leader in to the new show!  If you set up series recording you end up with about 4 or 5 recordings per week, only one of which you really want to watch!

Msradell - That is the "show type" option on the series record menu. Select it to change from all to first run.

Series recordings setting to only record shows?

Is there a way to setup a recording of a series so that it will only record shows in that series?  Many times the previous shows are shown prior to the new show as a lead-in.  This not only eats up but takes a good bit of time to sort out what recordings to erase.

Msradell - No, The series record does "about" time. Not exact time. But, you should be able to stop them by selecting first run only - Your other post.
