Default Trying to record a show, but it doesn't show an "R" symbol in the guide view

Hi everyone. I am having some trouble recording "The Young and the Restless" for my mom. I have tried several different times to record all new episodes (both by choosing to record the full season and by double-pressing the "R" button on the remote when highlighting the show in the guide).

Most of the time it will show that future episodes are recorded, but every now and then when I check for the following week, they do not have the "R" next to them, even though they are new episodes.

It's been working fine lately, until this week again. This week none of them had the "R" next to them, so I had to manually press the "R" button on the remote. Doing this once actually made the "R)))" symbol appear, showing that the season is being recorded, yet the next day's episode still had no symbol and I had to press the record button again for each episode.

Next week is the same, no "R" symbols at all.

The show is listed at least three or four times in the Series Recordings manager, because I guess I've tried different ways to record it, but I don't understand what's going on.

I've never had this issue with other shows. Does it have something to do with the way soap operas are listed in the TV listings? Will they record even if they have no "R" symbol, since all new episodes still seem to be set to record?

It's frustrating. I want to make sure she's not missing anything.

Thanks!

P.S. Fun side project: The Young and the Restless also re-airs later each night at 6pm. I have tried recording these episodes too, as a backup in case the news interrupts the regular airing, but I have the same issue with these. I've tried double-pressing the record button on these episodes, but it doesn't seem to pick up all of them. I have to keep doing them one by one.
