Bug Report: Timers failing to go off
Posted 28 January 2004 - 10:34 PM
There does not seem to be any rhyme or reason to which shows will record and which won't. Sometimes the 921 records a show and sometimes it does not. It also does not seem to make any difference whether the show being recorded is in HD or SD.
Has anyone else experinced intermittent timer failure like this? Is this a known issue with the 921? If not I am officially reporting this bug.

Issues recording OTA channels have been discussed several times on this forum; might want to see other threads on the topic (e.g http://www.dbstalk.c...ead.php?t=22984 ).

Any help on this subject would really be appreciated. Is this a known issue or not? Please respond Mark as I really would lie to know if it's just my 921 or whether other owners are having similar problems.

I'm assuming that you're setting your timers from the guide? What padding options are you using? What switch(es) do you use?

So far I have failed even once to tape back to back shows and the every time I try to tape 3 shows in a row I only get the middle show to tape.
Now I have been told I may have a bad DP 34 switch. Would a bad DP 34 switch explain my recording problems for satellite SD channels?
