    On Friday or Saturday, Dante's Peak was playing on Scifi so I desided to look at the info and see if it was playing at another time. When I went down to episodes it showed 2 episodes both of which were the current playing program. Just thought this was intersting. And yes I know it's a move and it doesn't have epiodes but I was checking it to see if it might list future showings in the episode tab.

    Like matty8199, I have not seen this, at least not recently. However, I have seen it, albeit rarely, in the past, perhaps more than a month ago.

    Just to clarify one point, would you mind describing how you select the program to play. For instance, do you go to MyVOD, select the program, and then press PLAY in the menu on the left side of the screen? Or, do you watch a "buffered" copy of the show? You might do this if you select the program using the guide and then press the pause button.

    The only thing this suggests to me is that one of your tuners is actively tuned into this program, and that suggests to me that you might be watching the buffered rather than the recorded copy.

    I hope this makes sense. And if it does, do you think this might have something to do with that darn popup window?

    IIRC, this is correct.

    The UTV was a seperate DVR fee... not included in the TiVo/R15 DVR fee

    OK, I don't feel bad now. At least I can go get the HD tivo and swap it out for my normal HD *D reciever and not get charged more.

    I select it to play by going into MyVOD and selecting the program...

    If it's caused by using the jumpback button, that kind of takes away the usefulness of fastforwarding at 2x and then using that to "jump back".

    So, if I don't use the jumpback button at all (which is a huge pain in the ass not to do, I might add), I won't have the problem? Lame. Needs to be fixed.

    That is correct.

    That is also correct. It's very annoying.

    I have one of my series links set for The Young and the Restless at 12:30pm M-F. Yesterday they all were listed in the ToDo list to record the next 10 episodes, today all of this weeks episodes were gone from the list and only three of next weeks were there. SO NO the Series Link isn't anywhere near fixed. I deleted the series link and re-created it.

    Well, at least we've gotten it figured out. That's a start.

    Has anyone that records the daily soaps tried using the Soapnet channel instead of the locals ? I think they reshow the days episodes all over again.

    CBS Soaps are not on Soapnet, only ABC and some NBC soaps.

    Same thing happened here. Had Days set for series link. Channel 4 Columbus Ohio at 1 pm. I have a R15-500 with 10A3. The to do list was filled and this entire week vanished! Called Dtv and they confirmed that the software upgrade was a failure!

    For now skip the Series Link. Go to manual record, select reoccurring, M-F, time and channel. Just like setting a VCR. So far it works fine. Doesn’t rely on the menu.

    I feel for ya man! Same thing here. When I called the CSR and he asked how he could help me I told him to make the R15 record my wifes soap and get her off my ass or I was sending her down there in person!

    I thank the Lord regularly that my wife doesn't watch soaps, except Desperate Housewives.

    I have a SL setup for American Idol on local Phoenix channel 12. Priority #1. It recorded last nights episode just fine. Tonight's show does not appear in the TODO list and if I go into the prioritizer and select American Idol I get a message that "there are no episodes for this series in the guide at this time".

    If I go into Find BY and search on American Idol tonight's episode shows up fine.

    I haven't reset or rebooted the unit since sometime last week (knowingly) and I put it in stand by every night.

    EDIT: Also, if I go into MYVOD and select the show from last night and go down to episodes there are none listed.

    There never is if you select a MYVOD, check any of your programs in MYVOD and it's the same thing. I hope they fix this.

    Correct cabanaboy!!!!

    So what's your guess on the purpose of the "Episodes" selection under a selected MYVOD entry? It obviously doesn't currently provide any info on any show. Is it just a placeholder for code yet to be written in the future?

    It thought it was there to show what episodes where recorded by it doesn't even do that. I think it was more the "cut and paste" screen images/menu's that they did and didn't remember to cut and paste the code Ex. manual showing autotune.

    I think they wanted it there but forgot about. Look at the search function or go into a SL list and it will still show recorded shows that are in MYVOD.
