Use the SEARCH FUNCTION on your cable. Both verizon and comcast allow you to search and record for tv shows. I typed in fishing and recorded everything. The great thing is that you can record a series and select to record "new episodes only" or "all episodes." That was cool until my dvr filled up in 3 days and the wife was PISSED that some housewives show didn't record. I tried to explain that Bass 2 Billfish was much more "real" but that didn't go over well.
