On Demand Shows Not Available, Preset DVR Options, length of time to keep recordings

ON DEMAND:  As a long-standing customer who has used On Demand for a number of years, I'm very disappointed with On Demand these days.  Common shows like "Food Paradise" and "Homicide Hunter" are not available On Demand because they will be aired within the next couple of weeks.  This DEFEATS the entire purpose of having On Demand; I want to watch the show, I don't want to have to set it up to record a week from now, that's why I have On Demand.

RECORDING:  PLEASE let each DVR customer preset their Recording Options so we don't have to go into Options EVERY TIME we set up something to record.  It's irritating.

LENGTH OF TIME TO KEEP RECORDING:  I am UNABLE to change this setting from "1 year" back to "Until Space is Needed".  Get some DVR unavailable message.  PLEASE FIX THIS.

Hi FELICIATHIEL, I understand that you desire to watch content via on demand that isn't listed. Each network post their own content on demand, so if the content is not there to view you would have to reach out to the network that airs the show to have them make the show/movie available on demand. In the meantime you can continue to set your favorite shows to record so you don’t miss any other the action.
