The information was for today showing, but it was a repeat from a few years ago. The 8.00 did not record. Did anyone had the same problem?

The correct show recorded fine here.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Out West, it's scheduled for 9 PM, with Judge Judy on at 7:30, followed by How I Meet your Mother, and 2 Broke girls at 8:31. It's channel 5, KPIX here.
So I will check at 9.

Do you mean the 9:00 pm showing? Wtev according to tv guide had it schedueld for 9:00 pm.

Also what type of timer do you have set up? Season Pass, New , all episodes?

I record it from KPIX and my timer is set to record at 12 am eastern time. It is not showing as a skip.

It was suppose to record at 8 but the information was the same as the 7.30 recording so it did not record as I have the season pass set as new.

2.5 Men doesn't come on at 8pm in our Time Zone, it comes on at 9pm. That is unless you're not really in Jacksonville, FL like your info says.

sounds like he set up a recording on a station airing reruns in syndication as there is no showing on CBS of 2.5 men on the half hour in any time zone during prime time. On CBS the sequence would be "How I Met Your Mother", "Two Broke Girls" then "2.5 Men"

As for the central time zone, 2.5 men recorded just fine here

Ditto West Coast feed. No problem. Lotsa Charlie nostalgia, no?

I was not trying to record the 7.30 show but the the 8.00 show. It recorded the 7.30 because the info said it was new and the 8.00 as repeat.

I think something went wrong with your guide, as WTEV aired two and a half men @ 9:00 pm. Guide erros happen all the time no matter which provider you use. I checked my wifes DVR and it recorded @ 9pm on WTVJ in Miami and on my DVR it recorded @ 12am(9pm pacific) on KPIX.....

He's referring to 7:30 and 8 being re-runs on his local CBS station, not the national 9pm Monday night showing. That's what had me confused too until he clarified it.

No 8:00 pm would have been how I met your mother. From what I am reading his dvr record the 730 syndicated 2 and a half men and for some reason his dvr showed a 2 and a half men episode @ 8:00 pm. That is why I think he had a program guide error. If he is in JAX then WTEV is his CBS affiliate and TV guide had listed for Monday 2 and a 1/2 men 7:30 and the regular CBS line up starting at 8 with HIMYM.

I know what 8 should have been, and was, but it's not what he said.

I had the same problem with DirecTV. The episode was new per the guide so the old 7:30 episode recorded and I did not get the new episode a 9:00pm. Now I can't find it on demand.

Right and IF the 7:30 which showed as new was a syndicated repeat and it showed the 8pm as a repeat then the guide info was wrong, since the actual guide info would have been a syndicated 2 and a half men @ 7:30pm and a new HIMYM at 8pm.

Any 2 and a half men @ 8pm on a CBS east coast affiliate would have been a guide error, that is all I am saying.....
