What, exactly, does "Save only X episodes" mean?

(Using Motorola RNG200N DVR)

Let's say I select 5 episodes, but there are 12 listed for a day. What I expect is that the first 5 will be recorded and then the series will stop. But what I experienced is that only the most recent 5 are kept and the previously recorded ones are discarded. Is that the case or did I just happen on a fluke?

 

Is there a detailed guide to setting up series recordings?

From what you described, it means to keep only the 5 latest episodes.
