Series manager recording episodes from "All Channels" instead of 'first run only'
A response to this question was to the effect that the default is to record programmed episodes from "all channels". My question is WHY??? If a series broadcasts on ABC, and I set it record 'first run episodes from ABC', why does it REPEATEDLY pick up and put all streaming episodes back on my DVR? Why does it do this for multiple series at a time, leaving me with 5% of recordable space? This is a programming flaw that needs to be corrected, not explained.
