two timers for same show??

I would like to set up two timers for Dr. Who -

+ One records new episodes only.

+ The second records everything,which is how the current timer is set up. Because frequent broadcasts of older shows, new shows sometimes are erased before I get to watching them.

Any way to do this - plenty of drive space, might as well use it.


thnx,

Edit your "record everything" timer and change Keep setting to All Events. I've done that for Mash and have over 250 episodes saved. No need for two timers.

Thnx - to be honest I didn't recognize this as an available choice.

I would still prefer two timers - that would make picking what I want easier.

A couple things to try...

Are both new and repeat on the same channel? If not, you can set up separate timers by clicking on a future event on each channel in the guide.

You can also try setting up a timer from a Search. It may give you an option for a Seek timer which you could set up differently than one created from the guide (low probability).
