Hey guys. I'm new to Channels DVR having spent the last fifteen years using SageTV. Channels has really impressed me and I can see using it far into the future. Having spent so much time with another DVR, certain functions that exist there but not in Channels has brought me here to ask this question:
Is it possible to have a series pass that will keep X number of recordings, not auto delete with newest recording, and simply just not record any more episodes until one of these recordings is deleted? If not, could this logic be added as an advanced feature or even as a condition?
Here's where this comes in handy:
Right now I record the local news. I have it set to record everyday and keep the last one recording. This is a great example of how the current methods do indeed provide much benefit. There's no need for me to keep multiple old copies of today's news.
Conversely, programs exist that my family and I are interested in, but we do not need the last aired version. An example could be 'House Hunters' . This show is a 'stand alone' program. Nothing that happened in a previous episode impacts the currently airing program so having a few of these is fine. We can watch these at our leisure. The problem, if you can truly call it a problem, is that I'd like to keep 'at most' three of these but I do not need to have Channels DVR recording these on a daily basis just to always have three available if we decide to watch them. We do have several of tv shows we would like to use this type of logic with.
Can someone tell me if this is already possible?
