Re: DVR is recording repeat programs

Check the descriptions of the programs. If they do not have a NEW or REPEAT tag, it will default to recording as if new. This is a long-time issue with the networks providing the correct data to the company (Gracenote I think) that provides the guide data for Comcast.

I am have had the same issue with our TiVo for the last several days.  It is definitely a metadata problem but haven't had time to download a duplicate and cross check the metadata.  I'll let you know what I find, but it is still the metadata source that has to fix the problem.

Competitors DVR settings allow you to set your show to record only on a certain channel and/or date/time. This feature would fix the problem with Xfinity!! I hope this is added soon.
