Guide or Scheduler Issue?

As far as showings missing altogether, that seems to be a flaw in recent OS up revs (at least the last two). You can prove it is hinky by selecting the show in the guide and pressing record. If multiple orange "R"s appear, that is a smoking-gun dead giveaway that a repeating recording would have been missed otherwise.
We have pleaded over and over with DTV to fix this glaring error which they broke now nearly a year ago, but they are stone-walling, either too clueless to fix it or too embarassed to even acknowledge it. I suspect a little bit of both, actually.

Recently I'm noticing some strange scheduling of recordings, mainly on Syfy. I recorded Warehouse 13 last night and it also recorded the same episode again this afternoon at 3:00 pm. I was checking my todo list and Haven isn't scheduled to record Friday night at 10:00 pm, but is scheduled to record Saturday morning at 9:00 am. There are no conflicts on Friday and there was no problem with the recording last night of WH13, actually I noticed that WH13 was scheduled for both times all week. HR20-100 receiver.
A little bit of a bother but when I get shows like that I set up a recurring manual recording. Menu-manage recordings-manual. It sets up like a VCR to record a particular time slot once a week or once a day, etc. The sports channels have shows that repeat several times a day.

Dang, I really don't want to be checking my todo list constantly to make sure the box is doing it's most basic function.
I have a Moxi with a limited Cable selection and it has everything scheduled to record correctly.

Mine currently has the monday 8/2, 10:00 pm episode listed as to be recorded, rather than the Tuesday episode this week. Interestingly, the Monday episode is listed as HD, while the Tuesday episode is not. I wonder if it is favoring the HD (coded) episode over the earlier one.
I just looked at mine and it has the Monday 8/2 scheduled to record, I might have missed it earlier, I bet I did miss it and you are right about the HD portion. And now that you mention it, the Haven that I manually set to record last night isn't listed as HD in the list of recordings. That does seem to have a bearing on the weird scheduling on Syfy.
It's frustrating that this kind of stuff happens, you'd think that they wouldn't have these kind of bugs, especially on same time same old routine programs. I wish they would get it fixed. But like I mentioned earlier, my Moxi is set to record first run and it has all the right times for all the Syfy shows.
