Can I get some help here. Just got my hr20-100. I have set the DVR to record a number of series. I have it set to capture just first run. It is recording repeats even though the date shows first aired many months/years ago. Any ideas on why it's doing this?

I have had mine do this before and what I came to think the problem was is that it is the first time that episode has played on your DVR. It may be old but since it has not cycled thru your DVR yet it thinks that it is new.

This is a problem with the onscreen program guide. Some shows do not have the repeat flag set, so the DVR always thinks it is a first run. I guess it is better to record extra shows than to miss a recording.
