Set up a Smart Recording for a TV series (legacy)
If a show is part of a series, you can record the entire series as a Smart Recording. Learn about other types of Smart Recordings.
To record a TV series as a Smart Recording:
Navigate to the Detailed Info screen for the TV series you want to record, using either the on-screen guide or by searching.
Select Smart Record.
On the confirmation screen, select OK to accept the default settings for recording the series, or select Recording Options to view the default settings or make changes.
You can also set up TV series Smart Recording from the on-screen guide by pressing twice while highlighting the show.
Recorded shows are actually recorded and saved on the storage device, not the TV Box. So as long as you leave the storage device powered on, your scheduled recordings will be recorded. It is not necessary to leave your TV Boxes on when you are not actively watching TV.
