If you used search to setup the series recording then it uses its default settings of all channels,On Demand and RR regardless of how you setup the DVR.

Thank you for your input, @shannon02. If you have scheduled a recording @Shepardone, you may cancel a Series Recording from the "List" button. Please follow the instructions below. We'll send you a PM to further assist.



    • Press the 'List' button on the remote control


    • Select a recording from the list, press 'OK' on the remote


    • Select 'Cancel Recording', press 'OK' on the remote


    • Select 'Cancel Series', press 'OK' on the remote


    • The 'Series Canceled' confirmation screen displays
