Disable channel changes for back-to-back recordings

Can someone please remind me how to tell Sage not to change channels automatically if it's already tuned to that channel? Here's the scoop: There was a marathon of Outer Limits episodes playing (5 or 6 in a row), but for some reason, between each episode, SageTV decided to change the channel to the same channel (causing the STB to display the info on the screen for a few seconds - which I want to avoid).

I must be getting old, because I could swear this problem was something simple, but I can't find it. My other system doesn't do this. Any pointers to a section of the sage properties file or Setup menu option, would be appreciated.

FYI, I'm still trying to figure out how to get Verizon's (FIOSTV) new onscreen guide to disable the banners - but no soap yet. The video/audio quality is excellent, but I hate the guide.

Thanks in advance!

In Detailed Setup -> Customize, there is an option to "Always tune channel".

SageTV Open Source v9 is available.
- Read the SageTV FAQ. Older PDF User's Guides mostly still apply: SageTV V7.0 & SageTV Studio v7.1.

That's it! Knew it was something simple, but the weird part is it just started happening in the last few weeks - I've been using Comcast with their STB for over 2 years. Just recently moved over to Verizon FIOS, then it started happening. Definitely unrelated, but the timing was eerie. I checked my other system, and it's turned off.

Thanks, as always, you're a life saver!
