If you find that you’re getting a lot of recordings you don’t want, it could be that you are recording a show across “All Channels.” Recording it on a single channel can get rid of a lot of repeats that you don’t want. Luckily, there’s a great tutorial here. It shows you how to use your phone or tablet to create a new recurring recording on only one channel. You can also use the DIRECTV web site to do the same thing.
