The setting is in the recording options for the shows.  Find an old 
episode in your recorded media (and there's probably other places where 
you can do this too), but instead of selecting and playing it, hit the 
right arrow, select recording options > edit recording schedule. Then go 
into Post recording processing and select Transcode New recordings, and 
change it to Do Not Transcode...
