Sounds to me like there are some guide data issues. You might want to try fluching your guide data by resetting the DVR twice in 30 minutes.

The guide data on Zap 2 It is listing the episodes on Mondays as being new episodes as far as I can see, so I dont' think it is an issue with the guide data in the stream being wrong unless your local affilliate might be doing something strange to it. I recommend you check Zap 2 It yourself for your zip code and see if it tags the monday episodes as new episodes.
Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

Nope, it is always Monday... It has happened 4 out of the past 5 weeks. It did not happen last Monday so I thought it was fixed.

Mondays used to show "highlights" of the week before. Basically if you missed a whole week, Monday seemed to be a recap of everything. Not advertised this way, but sure seemed to be. Not that I watch soaps... ;-) .... well, not anymore. YEARS I say, YEARS.

Anyway, perhaps that is why they aren't always listed as new.

But they are listed as new and its not really like that. The first scene is usually the same ending scene as Friday.

No news... They normally don't announce updates, they just send them out. You may want to look into the CE program on here.

There will be a point where they catch up to, and maybe pass, the HR24's.

After using my new HR34 for a month, I see one large glaring issue: program sorting (Note: MRV is not enabled). This shows up in the Playlist, where an A-Z sort gives two groups of A-Z sort, one after the other. It also shows up in single-channel program lists (guide/highlight channel name/display) after to drill down to a program and then back out, the channel list is now balky and generally completely out of order (whole date range blocks are misordered, with next Tuesday following next Friday).

This all seems one bug, but I've not seen it mentioned here. Does my unit have a problem?

Was watching the Royals lose again last night and was live or nearly live when the picture froze. No response from remote. Picture was on one frame and stuttering. Had been going back and forth between a recording and the game. Had to hard reboot. I had noticed that the remote was taking longer and longer to execute commands the last several days and was thinking about a reboot. Guess it finally forced my hand.
