I'm new to Directv and I love it. It's way better than TWC. I have the HR34. It's a little buggy, but I still like it. I'm trying to record the new season of The Walking Dead that starts on Sunday at 6pm. For some reason, the HR34 doesn't wants to record the season debut on Sunday at 6pm. The DVR wants to record the first episode next Friday (19th) at 7pm. I have the DVR set to record First Run. Has anyone else have this problem with The Walking Dead? Any ideas on how to resolve this issue?

Thanks!

It's a guide data issue ... The first 4 showings of the season debut don't have the HD tag. Just go to the season debut and press record.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Probably, but just record it to be sure.

Uhm. I was watching Bar Rescue on Spike last night and the cross-promote ad for Walking Dead on AMC came on saying the new season starts next sunday.

I had the same issue. I resolved it by deleting the series and scrolling to this Sunday's premiere and re-adding the the series again.

Been missing this series for a while. It's one of the few Television programs that I actually watch full time.

Another fyi: for those that have a season pass for American Horror Story, note that the 2nd season has a new title (American Horror Story: Asylum) and a new season pass needs to be set.

I'm with you and cannot stand the wait. And because of the wait it will seem like the S3 premiere Sunday was only a 1/2 hour long once I watch it.

The good thing is they are running all the previous episodes so I can get them recorded again after my hard drive crashed this summer, losing all the old ones I had recorded.

The season premiere episode, "Seed", was set to record for me on Friday 10/19 at 10pm. That's the first showing with the "HD" logo.

It wouldn't record any showing tonight. It decided to grab one on the 19th instead. I caught it while the first showing was airing and set it to grab the second showing. Not the first time I've had guide data issues on direct.

You can blame AMC though.

I had to get the 2nd showing after the fact. I didn't know that it didn't record until I went to watch it later. I checked the history and it said that the original showing was canceled because another showing of the same program was set to record. I assume this was because the same episode was also recording next week?

Why??? Its on like 50 times over the next week or so and it must have been on like 4 times last night alone. Mine was set to record it much later in the week as well...it seemed to be the 1st episode that had the HD next to the title, even though my SL doesnt specify HD.

I had the same issue and set the DVR to record the 9pmCST showing and it cancelled the recording and still had Friday's set. I ended up deleting the series pass and scheduling the individual recording. Will then have to go back in and reschedule the series pass.

I set mine to record series. At first I thought it was dropped because it only records five episodes but then I realized it never recorded it because it was still playing while I was checking. Seems like their is an issue with the guide data.

I noticed halfway through last night that it wasn't recording, but thought it was due to five other things recording on the HR34, so I recorded the 11:00PM showing.

I'm actually glad it didn't record, or else another show might not have that isn't repeated again. Time to review the SL, cause I've got at least 6 things to record on Sunday night now.

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

Highest ever ratings for the show despite Directv's/AMC's guide screwup delaying us till Friday to watch/record it. We've observed more guide mistakes over the last year.
