    Hi,



    Maybe I 'm just not looking in the right place but I can't see the option in the TV recording screen to specify how many episodes to keep. This option is called 'Episodes Management' in the old default blue skin.

    Awesome! I didn't even know that this feature existed in MP. Now I can manage all those endless kids recordings that are set to go every morning.

    Cool thanks. Still it would be nice if it could be done when you first setup the recording like in the old skin. I pretty much always use the "every time on this channel" recording option and set the episodes to keep at the same time otherwise I end up with the disk getting full from some recording I forgot about!

    Yay for searches that take you to the exact question I would have typed in a while. Seems to me like there is a space there in the skin where that button is missing from when you look at existing recordings. Apart from that one feature I think I managed the skin change unscathed. Everything works and looks pretty.

    I agree I prefer to have access into episodes management after setting the recording. Will have to go back to DW as I can't remember the difference, and maybe this is something I can suggest for ncoh/titan team after I get some screenshots & play around a bit more.[DOUBLEPOST=1371474604][/DOUBLEPOST]Actually if someone wants to post screenshots of difference in steps / additional clicks you need it would be very helpful and could potential lead to a change.
