I'm wondering if I'm the only one having this issue:

Time Warner DVR service in Anaheim CA
Using a Motorola DCX 3400

When I create a Series recording of a show I like, say Entourage, Sunday HBO at 10:30...I set the recording settings to record ONLY new episodes and save them until I delete them.

What I get is 3 recordings of Entourage... the first at 10:30 and two other replays of the same show.

Maybe there's a setting I'm missing but every Monday, I have to go through and delete the duplicate recordings.

Any help would be appreciated :)

The problem is that all three shows on the first day are tagged as "NEW" in the description. When they don't do that, you can't make a later showing part of a series recording when a conflict occurs. Kind of a catch-22 given the fact that their DVRs are rather simple minded.

I was afraid of that - oh how I miss my DirecTV box and the wonderful control settings it had!!

Thanks for the post.
