    For the last couple of weeks my guide is showing a timer to record ABC at 5:00 PM every day. Strange neither my wife nor myself have set this timer, nor can we delete it. Really strange the receiver isn't recording anything that I can see when this time comes up. It should the timer on every guide, (All channels, My Channels, etc.). Unplug reset does not get rid of it. This started happening when I started having problems with trying to edit my custom guide. The mystery timer does not show in the timer list also. Is this just another software bug DISH has to work out?

    I have something similar and figured out what it was. It's the PTAT timer - it seems to show up on ONE channel (the ABC station in my case - Boston DMA). It seems to show up an hour earlier than it should when the program leading into Prime Time is an hour because the last three minutes of THAT (lead-in) program will get picked up.

    I'd GUESS this was done for people who had PTAT enabled but tried to set 3 timers on other channels and couldn't "see" why they couldn't have another timer based on what they saw in the listings.

    It is a bug that was discussed on the other site. Dish Software posted about it and they identified the bug and are releasing a fix very soon via sw update.
