    Is there a way to set my default "keep until" option for use when recording individual shows? The TiVo defaults to "space needed" but I want it to be "until I delete".

    As it is now I have to manually set or edit options for every recording. Not a big deal but I was wondering if I missed something.

    I know there is a way for OnePass, I'm asking specifically about loose recordings.

    For the default recording options KUID and Start From are not, at this time, in the list. Maybe you can ask for it in a TiVo enhancement request.

    No idea why this isn't an option, very frustrating as a former Moxi DVR user, we had this setting.

    Not at all frustrating to us Tivo long term users that know superfluous use of KUID makes for frustrating troubleshooting with users who don't understand that a Tivo won't delete your recorded show until it really REALLY needs the space.

    In 15 years in the Tivo family I maybe have 10-15 things with KUID set and have never EVER needed it for a series.

    YMMV. I have a bunch of series I watch, every one of them has KUID set in its OnePass, and I've never had a problem in the couple of years I've had a Roamio. But I also use wishlists with 'until space needed' to record a bunch of newscasts so that I always have a recent one available if I want to watch it, and I watch the KUID shows quickly enough that there are always a bunch of those newscasts available to delete.
