1. Go into recorded storage. Check the amount of storage it's allowed to use (In WMC settings)
2. Check the series to see if there is limits on the series.
WMC allows you to only use a % of the drive as a MAX. So if your shows start filling up the allowed storage, it will start deleting shows. I think the default takes only 25% of the drive and if it's a 1tb, 250gp can fill up quick as a 1 hour HD show takes about 5-8gb and a 1/2 hour one is about 2-4gb. Record about 25-40 shows and see what happens..
I agree with the other poster here as get a SOLID working WMC machine and disable Windows updates, my HTPC does not even have virus protection on it. Note, this machine is directly connected to a TV and is NEVER used for web browsing or other content. If you use your computer for more, Windows updates and virus protection is suggested.
