I created a series link on my DVR (Model R15-500, Software 0x121C) on Friday, August 29, to record 5 episodes of I Love Lucy (TV Land). I turned on the DVR on Saturday at about 7:05 p.m. None of the episodes from earlier in the day had recorded. The episode that was supposed to record at 7:00 p.m. had also not recorded. However, at 7:08 it suddenly started to record. The episodes that had not recorded were in the Recording History, but the reason given for why they had not recorded was stupid, something like the time for this recording is now past. I called DirecTV, and they said it was a "known issue" as of August 27, their engineers were working on it, and it would be fixed at some unknown time by a software download. Strangely enough, though, I don't see any posts about this problem. If it's a "known issue," I would have expected to see someone else complaining. I am NEW to this forum, so maybe I missed it. Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks. P.S. A couple of other weird points. First, sometime during the Olympics, I set a Manual Record for 2 hours, and the machine only recorded 58 minutes of it, don't know why. Second, last night when I was talking to DirecTV, I was unable to change channels on the machine. At DirecTV's direction, I reset the machine, and I could change channels again.
