Last night, at 1:30AM, my three DVRs (all HR20-700) downloaded an "on demand" "Manual" that I didn't ask for.  They showed as one-minute long, logged as "keep" but contained no content.  (was channel 8883)

Anyone know what that was about?

I have ghost recordings happen all of the time for some reason...been going on for several years on my HR-2x IRDs.  No idea why... must be some weird D* software bug.  Would be nice if D* fixed it, though.  They're not always at the same time or the same channel.  Some are sometimes 20 minutes, some are an hour.  Nearly all of the time, the program title doesn't match what actually records, too.

If you watch a preview of a PPV on demand or any of those Directv banner ads on the Guide with preview video, it will save it to your playlist recordings with a keep icon.

I have not done any of that.
