Recording Shows

What do the colored flags on a program mean?

  • Red dot means that the program is currently being recorded.
  • White clock means that the program is scheduled to be recorded.
  • Orange double vertical square means that the recorded program is deletable and can be automatically deleted in case the disk is out of space.
  • Solid green square means that the  recorded program is protected and will not be automatically deleted in case the disk is out of space.

I have scheduled a series to be recorded. Why are no future episodes shown as scheduled?
Among the reasons that could explain this are:

  • There is currently no room on the DVR disk.
  • The Guide only shows programs that are scheduled within the next two weeks. If an episode is not yet in the Guide data, it will not be scheduled. Once it is in the Guide data, it will be scheduled.
  • Similarly, if your Recording Default is Record first-runs only and no first-run episodes are scheduled within the next two weeks.
