We've been recording all three primetime + the first news broadcast by default Sunday's on CBS for over 5 years now. First Charter, now Comcast. We don't even care about the Good Wife, but need to have it "just in case." Then there's the weekly check to see if we need to record the second news broadcast as well. It also takes extra DVR space which gets iffy with only 500Gb. We only watch one or two shows a night, sometimes not even one, and end up behind. (Much to far behind for most of the OnDemand offerings or online, except torrents of course.) At one point 2 years ago we were just finishing one season when the new fall season started.
Speaking of DVR management with X1...
We try to keep two episodes each of some shows for the kids cycling through regularly. I have about 6 or 7 shows set up to record all new and repeats but only save 2. Back at Charter this meant that they were constantly replaced with newer recordings and we only ever had two on the unit. With X1 they keep adding episodes which I am now manually trimming every night or two. Any insights?
