DVR recording problem - scheduling ‘New’ shows but records EVERYTHING.

DVR recording problem - scheduling ‘New’ shows but records EVERYTHING.

I just got my Xfinity yesterday and am overall happy with it. However, when I select ‘record’ and then ‘new’ for NCIS Los Angeles, it records every episode of NCIS Los Angeles airing on OXYG - which is basically 18 episodes! These are NOT ‘new’ espisodes, but there seems to be no way to fix this coding error of Xfinity. Same problem applies to other a few other shows (Blue Bloods) as well, though most of the shows we record do not make this error. 

We previously had AT&T Uverse which gave you the option of ‘first run’ and even more, which channel and time/day to record it. I now miss that Uverse feature!

Any advice most welcome!

Instead of using the search function to set your recordings, go right to the physical guide, to the physical channel and set your recordings from there
