I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

If the same episode has been recorded in the last 28 days, it won't record it again.
And if the channel isn't including proper show ID information the DVR might think two different episodes are the same episode.
For example if it just has a generic show description of Big Bang Theory, without any other information telling you what happens in that episode, or what the original air date was. If that happens more than once your DVR thinks it's the same episode so it doesn't record it. I used to have an issue like that with my local Fox station. They ran episodes of The Simpsons every day at 5 and 9 PM, but never included any information about what episode it was, so my receiver never knew if it was a new episode, old episode etc.
