I'm 0 for 2 on OTA timers. In this case I was watching 5-1 live from 8-8:59 (Apprentice). About 50 minutes into the show I paused. There was a manual record set to record ER from 8:59 - 10:00. I checked at 8:57 or so and the little timer icon was flashing. But, at 9:02, there is no indication that the timer started recording. It is still listed as a future event in the PVR screen. I assume someone actually has had an OTA timer work? Any suggestions as to what I might try to get one to work?
