    I have CI, mostly for Rangers games. I set it to record a game two or three days ahead and about 1/3 of the time the game is not on the to do list the morning of the game. The game isn't even in the history as a cancelled recording. Yesterday was no different, I set both dvr's, an HR 22 and an HR24 to record a few days ahead and had to reset them again yesterday morning. I went to watch the game last night and while the games were in the list of recorded shows, but both were empty files, went to play them and all I saw was "0 min" and when I tried to play it went to "do you want to delete" Is this an MSG NY only issue, CI only, or does this happen to people with MLBEI or League Pass or on CI if you, say, try to record a preds-caps game?

    If you are having problems on the NHL CI channels, you might try recording the RSN channel instead. I use 638-1 MSGB HD to record all my Sabres games and never have a problem.

    On you actual issue with NHL CI channels, are you able to watch live games on those channels w/o a problem? Do you have problems recording other programs on other channels? You might try doing a reset or reauthorize [link] of your DVR's to see if it clears it up. It might actually be a bad connection or alignment issue as described in the thread [link]. If you read it, it might give you some suggestions that you can try.

    I have always had the same problems with MLBEI, I think guide data changes are the problem. The best and most reliable way is a manual recording.

    Thanks, it is usually just a case of having to check and frequently reset recordings on the day of the game, except for all of the software issues with the first hr 20's I have never had it fail to record until yesterday. I have tried recording the actual rsn, but that does not always work and they have been know to change the channel for a game at the last minute so a manual record is not always the safe option either.

    One last suggestion is to set up a "Smart Search" to record the games. I use a the setup similar to the one below to record the Sabres and it hasn't failed. It gives priority to the first entry and works it way down the list. Here are the 3 different Smart Searches you should setup for the Rangers:
    Live helps so you don't pick up repeats on the RSN, VS or NHLN.

    Douglassvill...
    would it also record the rangers repeat at midnight and the trimmed down game the next afternoon?
