    Not sure if this the correct forum...

    I have the normal Direct TV Tivo, NOT HDD...

    I have it set up to record several shows whenever they come on...

    It will only record 5 shows...after I view one or two shows, and delete them, it will record a couple more, but never more than 5...


    I record JAG, Monk, and House...all set up to record the series...

    But for each show, I can only get 5 recordings...

    Jag will show 5/5 meaning 5 saved, 5 to watch...after I watch one it will
    show 4/5, and will record 1 more show...but never more than 5...

    Is there a setting in the reciever that will allow me to record ALL of the shows in a series...20-30 or more???

    When you set up the Season Pass, there is an option to keep all shows. The default is to keep only five.

    Just go into your ToDo list and change the setting and it'll record and keep ALL episodes. There is even an option to record just first run or all including repeats.

    SteveM500 is correct - the default season pass is 5 shows. Other choices are 10 shows or all. Unless you've upgraded your Tivo hard drive, you probably don't want to record more than 10 shows of you may run out of drive space (assuming you've got a dozen season passes).
