countour 2 recording on specific channel

On countour 2 DVR from Cox, you can no longer select a specific network or channel.  This causes RE-RUNS showing on different odd networks to be recorded- several times a day for several days sometimes!.  How do you specify only one channel like we used to be able to do.

      Thank you for your link but this does not correct the long standing (other searches from long ago) problem that Cox no longer offers a specific station when recording a series new episodes only.

      So, for example, if I record Blue Bloods and say new episodes  only it records the Friday night 10 pm correctly when it is a new episode, but when a lesser station starts showing all day shows of re-runs (may be new to them) it records all of them all day.  Now also it is happening with "The Neighborhood'..Very frustrating having all these re-runs being recorded.  In today's day and age one would think Cox could fix this issue or at least put back the option to select a specific station for new shows only.

        @OldBob2, when setting up a recording, you should have an option that says Channels. When selecting that option, you should be able to move the options left/right and choose between hd/sd/and the "only this channel" option. This will prevent the dvr box from recording that program from other channels. -Allan, Cox Support Forums Moderator.
