Seems to work fine for me. Does just what it says, finds an airing of the show 
each week. Don't know how smart it is about re-runs though. I also notice 
that it sometimes records a show later in the week, even when there are no 
conflicts with an earlier showing. It records the earlier showing if I try to 
record something conflicting with the later one though.....
