Did anyone else have a problem with Friday Night Lights not recording last week and not set to record tonight?

I didn't even realize there was a new episode last week because it was not showing in the "to do list". I did see a commercial saying a new episode tonight but it is not showing my my "to do list" on two different DVR's and I am not sure why.

Well I decided to check On Demand and realized there was a new episode last week so I am downloading it now.

You may want to check and make sure yours is set to record if you have a series link set for it.

Thanks for the heads up! I thought they just took a break last week.

So did I. I just deleted the series link and reset it up and now it looks like it is finding the new episodes.

Thanks oldschoolecw. As I posted above I deleted the series link a few minutes ago and reset it up and it looks like it may have fixed the problem so you may want to try that.

Wow, I missed it too. Even after deleting the series link and adding it back I noticed it isn't in the to do list.

Added it upstairs to the HR21 and it set up fine. I am also downloading last weeks episode.

I have had to redo series links and Friday Night Lights is the most recent. Have kept the whole series because various family members want to see episodes missed or they do not receive. The HR20 starts a new folder with the same title. Have no idea why this happens but if your favorite series disappears from the "To do list" it never hurts to do a title search and redo the link.

They did skip the week of Thanksgiving... mine wasn't set to record last Wednesday, I did reset the To Do for New Episodes.... it recorded last week fine. I'll have to check tonight's. As for encores of last week, why not just get it off of DOD? They're all there in HD. Takes me about 20 minutes for an episode of FNL.

My question is why does this happen. I have seen this before. I have to constantly check. It is not like it is on a different channel.


I had to manually record it because series link did not recognize it as a new episode.

Mine has missed the past few recordings too. But this should not be a big deal to HR2X users who are networked.

I just get it from DoD. That frees up a tuner and I can download, watch and delete all when I am ready so the show does not lock up recording space.

I wish everything were On Demand.

Add me to the list. When I went into the Prioritizer, the show was listed, but the number of upcoming episodes said (0). I set another Series Link, and then I ended with TWO of them in the Prioritizer -- the original that says (0), and new one that says (2). Very weird.

Didn't know until reading here that these were available on VOD, so I pulled down the one from the last week and all is well. That's a cool feature.

I missed last week's as well, but I think I figured out part of the issue.

I now have two SLs for Friday Night Lights. The old one showing (0) the new one showing (2).

When I click on the old one I get a show description from the 10/1/2008 show. When I click on Episodes I get...

"In Prudhoe Bay, the crew achieves their last goal: to walk on the forzen Arctic Ocean. After 41,000 miles, 15-months and 400 days on the road --the team arrives to a warm...

Obviously, DirecTV screwed up their own guide data (yet again) and probably blew out every Friday Night Lights SL on their HR series.
