    I have a 622 with L403... not sure when it was updated, but about two weeks ago, my OTA recordings are not showing up in the recorded shows list. I only record two shows OTA from my CW network, and when I checked the recording history they show as completed in the list, but are not anywhere to be found on the system.... and NO, they weren't deleted.

    This happened last week too, and I thought it might be some kind of anomoly becuase it never happened before, but the same thing happened this week. Could this be related to the 403 update?

    Look at your history.. do you show them recorded? See any indication of deleted.

    Do you use locks? Are you showing any locked events. If so, check those to see if they are your programs. Long shot....

    Other than that.. need more info and suggest looking in your history to see if they recorded.... Also, try a hard reboot and see if they return.

    Are you missing any other programs from other channels?

    This is a problem with some ota local stations, I found if you sched them as a weekly event they will record.
    If you put them as all,or new they donot record

    Another potential issue I have noticed when recording OTA is if you happen to do a re-scan of OTA make sure you check any OTA timers you may have (especially if one is scheduled to fire soon after). The way around this is to immediately do a "check switch" to initiate a guide download. If you don't eventually your timers will be in order but I have seen it take up to a couple of hours.

    I have the same issue as oljim(we are in the same area) with missing timers. Setting them up as "weekly" instead of "all" or "new" seems to have fixed the issue for me.

    Well, in the history it shows as "Done" with the correct Start/Stop times.... but there is no AV recorded/stopped times like all my other timers.

    No locks are used.

    Everything else is showing up fine... but I only record two programs OTA from the same channel. So I only notice them when these shows aren't recorded.
