Avoiding duplicate recordings in Media Center

Question

 

How do I avoid getting duplicate recordings when recording a series?

Answer

 

When you schedule a recording for a TV series, Media Center automatically records episodes based on the options that you set here.

 

  1. Click the Start button, click All Programs, and then click Windows Media Center.
  2. On the Media Center start screen, scroll to Tasks, click Settings, click TV, click Recorder, and then click Recording Defaults.
  3. Scroll down to the Series only recording defaults section.
  4. Do one of the following:
  5. Under Show type, click the plus (+) or minus (-) button to record only new episodes, reruns, or live episodes.
  6. Under Channels, click the plus (+) or minus (-) button to record shows in this series on any channel, or only on a specific channel.
  7. Under Airtime, click the plus (+) or minus (-) button to record shows in this series at any time, or only at a specific time.
  8. Under Keep up to, choose how many recordings from this series to keep before older episodes are automatically deleted.
  9. Click Save.
