New Episodes remain NEW after watching

After we watch a new recorded Episode of any of the currently popular primetime shows, the icon in the DVR continues to say "NEW". It is very confusing because we have to click on the program icon to see if we actually have any new episodes in there to watch. Any idea why it's doing this?

that's the way it's supposed to work & it's been that way for a while on the Hoppers, it means it's a new episode (rather than a re-run).

Thanks for the reply Peggryh - guess we are used to the old way when the NEW would go away after you watched the episode and then pop back up when the next NEW one was recorded. We will just have to get used to the new way.

The usage of the word 'we' implies the presence of more than one individual in the household. Perhaps with varied schedules, so one person has opportunity to watch a show at one time, while an additional person has opportunity to watch it later.

See, that's kinda one of the selling points of a 'whole home' DVR. It's assumed more than one person will be accessing it.

Or "we" could imply that whomever sits down and watches it together could it not? My computer does all the dl'ing I need and can watch it anywhere, anytime, and never have to worry about a failure on Dish's part with equipment or updates that don't work never mind the extra expense and it is always commercial free no waiting days. Each to there own as they say.
