Something horrible happened to my OTA timers on a 722. I think I know what led to it, but I really don't want to test the theory because it took a long time to recover from it. I was watching a show on an OTA subchannel that doesn't have guide data, and wanted to record it, so I hit the "record" key. A few hours later I saw it was still recording. No big surprise there with no guide data. I told it to stop recording, which it did, and all seemed well. The recording was named "digital service". Then the disaster hit.
After that, no more OTA shows were recorded. Every single one was skipped, with the reason being something like "skipped by user". What I'm thinking is since "digital service" has no end time, recording it caused all future OTA recordings to be skipped. Making it even worse, I couldn't find any way to restore the timers except one show at a time, and one day at a time. This got old really fast, and I ended up deleting every OTA timer and then restoring them. Fiddling with priorities didn't help. Is there any way to restore more than one skipped event at a time? That would have helped a lot.
