722k Timer issue
Posted 14 March 2010 - 09:43 AM
None of them show any pending events. i have 85 timers, and record multiple shows every day. I can manually go back into the guide and ONE BY ONE set them to record, but i'm hoping there's an easier way to re-search the guide to track the timers.
I rebooted hoping it was a glitch, but so far I can't figure it out.

i have a timer for 'friends'. normally i records 3 to 4 episodes a day, and skips 5 or so due to conflicts.
if i go into the timer, it shows zero upcoming events. if I EDIT the timer, and go from say, all episodes to new episodes, all the skipped recordings show. if i edit again and go back to 'all episodes' then they all show up again. but i HAVE to edit EVERY timer for it to pick up the upcoming events again.
samewith all 84 timers.

Updates: No new issues, all the "corrupted timers" have remained so. While I initially believed this to be related to the DST time change, I now am leaning towards the "too many timers" scenario. I did notice one other clue for a corrupted timer - if I go to edit, the only options available are All and New Program - Daily, Weekly etc. are grayed out. The end result is still deleting and creating new timers.

Something's strange. Thought it was the box starting to go, which it might be, but this seems like a new software glitch in addition.
