Emby recording duplicates

Probably a stupid question.  How do I prevent Emby from recording an episode of a show more than once?  My use case: recording kids shows to build up a library for the kiddos (so they don't eat all my bandwidth via streaming!).   I don't only want "new" episodes per the guide because most of this stuff is older.  Does that make sense?

I had just been setting "record series" and forgetting about it.  Turns out not such a good idea, now I have to manually prune many seasons worth of curious George.   At least I know where all my space went....

Hi.  Edit the options for the series recording and you will find options like record only new episodes and don't record items already in my library.

Let us know if this answers your questions.

@ebr That does it.  I didn't realize it was at the series level vs a global setting.  Thank you very much!
