Thus why I and many others went with the "run search every 10 days and record games from results" method which was fool proof. This method was ever better on the HR2x's due to one touch record.
However when the HR2x introduced the boolean search terms the autorecord search for sports finally did something it never did on any DirecTivo of mine...it worked.
This is exactly what I do and I also Record my FSU Seminoles on 2 different DVRs in case of a Conflict I don't catch or a Power Outage (even though I have them on APC Battery Backups with Automatic Voltage Regulation to prevent Reboots).
I have 7 DVRs and I don't have any problems recording anything but I do Record Programs I definitely want (and want to keep forever) on 2 different DVRs in case one craps out.
However, I do believe in doing the Smart Search for those Events and then Selecting them to Record and this always seems to work flawlessly.
I have seen on several occasions when Autorecord did not seem to have enough time to properly Lock onto the Channel's Signal so it Recorded an Empty Recording Shell with Zero Audio and Video Packets in it. On one occasion I went into the room 5 minutes after it was supposed to be Recording and I turned on the Video Monitor and I had a Black or Blank Screen. The Red Light was on so I Channelled Up one channel and then Back Down and it Locked onto the channel's signal perfectly.
After it finished recording I went back into it and it had about 8 minutes of blank recording and then I got the Live Recording.
