    I am using Version 3.2.007 for Android on Note 3. When I remote schedule a recording of San Jose Sharks Hockey on Channel 698 which is my local RSN it then proceeds to record a Center Ice Channel which I do not subscribe to. Also, even if I did subscribe to Center Ice the game is not out of market so I wouldn't be able to watch the Center Ice Channel.

    For example using the app today I searched for the Sharks. Came up with Record Channel 698. Finished. Go to receiver and channel 769 is now scheduled to record.

    So why does it record a channel I did not select and that I do not subscribe to?

    Attached are pictures documenting the issue.

    Not only does it not record the correct channel it often records a replay not the live game. Also it sometimes records an SD version on a different channel. Directv needs to fix this now! The app worked fine until they "upgraded" the app to include all that streaming stuff. Just make the scheduler work again!

    I've had the very same issue - a couple of times it recorded the replay, a couple of times it recorded on the non-hd channel. This is recording St Louis Blues broadcast.

    So any updates to this? I inquired to DTV on 12/5/2013 and received the following response:

    Got the above reply today and tried 3 different recordings of SJ Sharks and they all scheduled to the correct channel so looks like DTV has fixed this problem.
