Scrolling through this, I saw someone say that they noticed this 31 days in. I noticed it within 3 hours of setting it up, and for ALL news shows, it's a given. I'm never going to watch the news from a week ago unless ONE TIME a family member is on it or something. And even then, I'd rather you delete it than keep it.
@TabloTV Your mobile app is already good enough. You should work on adding features ONLY to the web UI right now, at least until low-hanging fruit like this is taken care of. I will set The Today Show's settings once and then, if this feature is there, NEVER EVER TOUCH IT AGAIN! I can walk to my desktop in the other room for that. Hell, my wife can wait to adjust a recording setting until I'm home if I'm travelling for a few days for work. That's how unnecessary this is for mobile apps.
