New HR34 is not recording scheduled programs
Posted 12 February 2012 - 04:43 PM
For example Bachelor, House, Hawai Five-0, The Voice and Alcratez were all set to record tomorrow (Monday) night and I just happened to notice on the To Do list that none were listed. On the Series Manager screen they have a zero beside them. I have the recording default set to record all first run programs and these are first run versions of all these programs.
I manually hit record once on each show and the multiple record setting appeared. However none of them are scheduled to record next week even though there are again new versions to record then. Similarto connecting to the TV Apps problem I'm also having it is kinda sporatic because Grey's Anatomy among a few other programs on local sat show up as to be recorded in the To Do list and have a 1 or more beside the program listed in the Series Manager screen along with a few other non-local sat programs too.
I tried setting one of the programs to record on one of my other DVRs and it immediately picked up all shows to be recorded both on the To Do List and the Series Manager.
Any idea what is going on here?

I'll try the call into Tech Support too and see what happens.

I set up a few first runs on my new HR34 too and it wants to record repeats for some reason.
All of my HRs do that occasionally

Anyhow, like a bad user i had not rebooted my HR34 before calling, I have now done that and it hasn't missed a recording since. I looked in the history and found that the missed recordings were cancelled due to "an unexpected error". DTV is supposed to sent a tech out Sunday (I have no idea why) but if it doesn't miss any recordings between now and then I'll cancel that service call.

A reboot is generally the best thing to start with... and let me tell you. Regardless of what anyone at DIRECTV says, no one is going to write you a special patch and send it within four hours. If it seems like things magically get better, it's not because of anything special that they did.
those of DBSTalk.com, DIRECTV, DISH, The Signal Group, or any other company.

Short of a "reset everything", I'd try a double reboot to clear the GUIDE data, along with deleting and recreating all the SLs. Re-running "sat setup" will also clear the GUIDE data.
