Thats weird than...i thought it was the NR cause htey had the NR in the PT zone. Thats why i asked.
My HR21-700 rebooted yesterday to 02ca, but everything we watched last night were recordings from last week, so I did not check the Guide or the To Do list. After seeing this thread, I checked. The Guide is normal but the To Do list was empty. I don't exactly remember what should have recorded last night, but I've got Nova from last night which appears to have recorded intact, I've got a partial recording of Leno, and the 7 am recording of The Daily Show this morning did not happen.
I rebooted just now, and I've got a partial To Do list. I'll check later to make sure it repopulates.
Hopefully, although some people will miss recordings if the TODO list doesn't repopulate before the time of the program.
Excuse me? It's normal for the ToDo list to be wiped clean and recordings to be missed?
Both of my units had empty to do lists this morning as well. One retained a full history, the other only had 3 items in history including a software update from last night around 2:00 am. I have reset both units and the todo list is now starting to slowly repopulate. Not cool DirecTV...not cool at all.
No, that is not normal ..
Folks, we had a 5 min guide data glitch last night/this morning.
If your receivers didn't recover "nicely", please reset them.
Welcome to the world of "high tech".
So Doug what is the big to do about nothing. I am sorry I just do not understand your remark. Both of my HR's had the to do list wiped out. One is very slowly rebuilding after a reboot. The other is still at 0 at 1 PM Eastern so I just rebooted it. I think we would all like to hear why you posted that all is as expected.
FWIW All 3 of my hr21-100 had blank to-do lists.
after about 1/2 hr of being on and out of standby all 3 started to fill the to do lists and recordings scheduled during morning hours stated to take place. 2 units were not restarted, 1 was just to see if it made it quicker. there was no difference between leaving them alone and doing a restart.
Like others, my To-Do list shows zero (0) upcoming shows. It missed recordings this morning. I had to restart to resolve the problem.
Hardly 'much ado about nothing'!
In the bigger scheme of things, it is not a big thing to restart. Now the fact my work Blackberry is acting up, THAT is a big deal....
FWIW only my HR22-100 was affected. No problems with my HR20-700. Both units have 0x02CA firmware. The HR22 still has NO showings in the TO DO list.
BTW what happened to the poll?
The poll had served its purpose and was removed. It became clear this was not due to a particular model or software version.
Because I thought this was true .. If you still have zero items in your TODO list @ 1pm, that is not correct. Rebooting is the proper course of action.
After a menu reset my HR22-100 is happily rebuilding the ToDo list and is doing just fine.
Nothing to see here, folks...move along...
One other thing to check for. There is a report that one DVR has been found still recording from last night's glitch. The unit correctly restarted recording but did not correctly stop at the end of the show.
Again, this should only apply if a unit was to be recording at the time and seems to be a rare occurrence even then.
It is now an hour and a half since I reboted. After rebooting, the To Do list had 10 items. 10 minutes later it had 17, and now it has 28. It appears to be correct for the remainder of this week, but has not yet added anything for next week except one daily manual recording.
The todo list rebuilds over time. Normally if you see any entries you are in good shape. It will continue to add items.
Normally when a moderator edits a post, a mark is left indicating the time and who last edited the post. And as a general policy, we don't quietly edit posts, we leave a note within the post itself.
As to what was there? Typically something that is not permitted by forum rules or the rules of testing forums.
If you have anymore questions, I'd be happy to answer via PM.
