Series link - How Can I stop recording every episode

Hi, I am new to Virgin media after 15 years with sky. When I put a series link on for a new series due to start next week, I am getting every episode that the channel is showing. Which could be 10-20 episodes in a week. Can I stop this?

Re: Series link

Have you set the series link to new only as the default (unless you change it) is new and reruns?

Re: Series link

Unfortunately you have to change the arch series link. But do be aware that while changing them to new only works for the major channels, if you have a series link for a minor one then sometimes the  programme info on the EPG isn't entirely brilliant. So you might get a new series to that channel but it won't show as new and therefore any series link would need to be new and reruns otherwise TiVo would miss episodes.

Re: Series link

It's mostly MTV that I have most problems with as a programme is show that many times in a week I am getting so many recordings. The normal channels ain't to bad.
