    I was on travel last week and returned today. I looked at the Playlist on my HR24 and it didn't seem nearly as full as I expected. Some quick checking and I discovered the following:

    1. The last thing it recorded was Wed, 1 AM (Frontline)
    2. The To Do List starts on (last) Wednesday and has all my scheduled recordings
    3. I had both Series and Episode recordings that went unrecorded
    4. I scheduled a football game for yesterday through DirecTV online and it's in the To Do List, but never recorded

    I also couldn't run a System Test or Record anything manually. Rebooting cleaned up the To Do List and everything seems to be running fine.

    Has anyone experienced this? I know I can't do anything about it now, but is there a way to catch/prevent this in the future? Can you remote reboot your DVR?

    I'm actually on the forum tonight because my HR-24 isn't recording "The Walking Dead," even though it thinks it should and claims it is. Effing hell. If it wasn't AMC which repeats the crap out of its shows, I would be very annoyed. Being in your position would make me very very annoyed.

    Sorry, I can't say whether or how one could remotely reboot. Sure ought to be an option.
