@1richk If you have a BlueCurve TV player, simply follow this link to set a manual recording until space is needed or for 1 Year. Let us know if you got another type of cable set-top boxes (model number on the front panel will be required).
@1richk -- the older Shaw HDPVR devices that were nearly full (500 GB? 1000 GB?) would delete "old" content to make room for new content. Is that happening to you?
