Record latest episode...ONLY

The wife records Law & Order and at first it recorded the latest episode, now records every single episode that is played back as a re-run/syndication. Suppose I could delete the oddball channels that plays these back but that defeats the purpose. Not to mention deleting each episode one by one is a little tedious. Man, what a learning curve it’s been. This is just one of many. Frustrating

By latest episode, do you mean “NEW” episodes, as in you only want it to record first run episodes?

If that is what you are referring to, when you set up the recording, you are given 3 options. Record the one episode, record ALL episodes or record NEW episodes.

Choosing that last one will only record episodes marked as NEW (ie, first run).
