It seems some of my shows that have recorded with PTAT don't have auto-hop available...
Golden Boy, Smash, Red Widow to name a few... these were all recorded > 24 hours prior...
I have the hopper w/ sling running S304...

I've noticed that the "24 hours" is from the END of the recording, not the beginning.

For example, we usually watch NCIS and NCIS:LA on Wednesday. If we start NCIS:LA before 10:00, it won't hop. After 10:00 and it will.

It took me a couple of times to figure it out. We'd watch NCIS with auto hop and then not have the option on LA, and it irked me until I figured out the timing of it...
