    One of my shows did not record last night. It was not even showing in the playlist. I checked the history and found it as "canceled". The explanation was "Program was canceled due to unexpected error (29)". Does anyone know what the (29) translates into? The program was on one of my local HD channels (ABC in Los Angeles). I have an HR21-200.

    I don't know what the error was, but if you were trying to record something in prime time off a broadcast network, it may have been pre-empted by the President.

    No, my Tivo recorded the show ok, so I know it was broadcast. What is the point of listing an error message code if nobody knows what it stands for?
