search and record series

Just Moved In

Enable search and record functionality for series that are between seasons and when the next episode is more than two or four weeks away.  On Shaw you can enter a series name in the PVR and the PVR will record that show whenever the next episode is.  With Telus we need to search every two weeks for a each series we want to watch.  The other option is find other sites that track series and find out from them when the new seasons start, then set up calendar alerts to ensure we set up the recording before the next episode.  Antiquated system, expected more

When you set a series to record, you can change the settings to record All episodes or just first run episodes. 


The guide data itself is not provided more than a couple weeks in advance from the various channels and broadcasters so setting the recordings to do first run episodes will allow future recordings to be made without them being on the guide yet.
