    • Daily – allows user to set the recording to recur every weekday or every specific number of days.

    • Weekly – allows user to select the day(s) of the week for the planned recording.

    • Monthly – allows user to set the recurrence to a particular date of the month or select first, second, third, fourth or last and specify the day of the week used for recording recurrence.
