Anybody else has seen this?
When I first installed the Hopper, I was able to go into the guide and the PTAT network shows and select a show in advance of air date and tell it to save to my partition. That is not available any more (Now I have only two options: view Schedule and More Info - the save series is no longer there).
Since the last software upgrade, I can only tell Hopper to do so once the show aired by selecting it in the stored PTAT folder and then tell it to save individually or as series.. Has something changed or am, I missing something?

Are you trying to do this on an ABC channel, if so its a bug that has been widely discussed at the other site. One work around is to use the Search button while in the guide and then either Seek and Record or click on the show and go to the episode list. This appeared in S234.

Thanks, it was indeed ABC, but I also noticed it on others. I also see a post stating a fix is coming - and thatw or around also worked. Thanks everyone!

I just checked this on my Hopper w/sling and it savers from PTAT just fine for all channels. So I would expect it will get fixed on the hopper without sling soon.

It isn't just hopper related from what I understand but the issue is only occurring in certain local markets. It doesn't happen on my original or my new HWS since my local market isn't affected. I'm sure it's the same for you.

I'm having the same issue and live in the South Florida market. Has Dish indicated when the SW push is going to take place?
