I've missed recordings of two different shows recently (hopefully not more, I have lots of things I have yet to look at) but they both have a slightly different problem.

I recorded the last two episodes of Damages. The history shows them as being "recorded", yet they do not appear in my List for some reason. I'm assuming that since the status is "recorded", and not "deleted" or "canceled", then that means the recording should be in my list. No such luck.

Secondly, I have problems with the last three episodes of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. These eps do appear in my list, but when I go to watch them all I get is a blank screen with the progress bar usually several minutes into the show. I noticed someone earlier in this thread had the same issue on a different show.

After correcting myself, I did notice that FXHD came online on 10/15 (not 10/17 as I had thought), so all of these recordings were from FXHD. I deleted my series link to these shows in SD and added the HD channel version before these episodes aired. Which leads me to believe there may be some user error here, although I'm not sure how I could mess that up.

After discovering the problem last night, I set up a random recording on FXHD for the middle of the night. Just checked it and it has the same problems that Philadelphia has, gray screen and immediate prompt asking me if I want to delete it. I've looked through the FXHD thread in the Programming forum and didn't see anyone else having the same problem.

Any insight into these issues would be appreciated. Especially if anyone has a magic trick to make those last two episodes of Damages show up, I'd really like to finish the season.
