DVR records all episodes even for "Only new"

As the topic states, my DVR constantly wants to record every episode for certain shows, even when they are set to record "Only new" episodes.

Presumably the episodes have not been labelled correctly, resulting in this issue.

I have noticed it particularly for kids shows, like Adventure Time, Regular Show, and Spongebob.

Is there any way to fix this? Is this something Suddenlink can / will fix?

I don't know exactly what causes it, but it isn't unique to Suddenlink. Could be a bug or the DVR does the best it can with the lack of guide data from the networks.

Used to happen when I had a DVR. I believe it takes que from the guide info submitted by the provider so about all you can do (what I did) is to check it every so often and delete the reruns or change your recording rules to get a more specific showing
