I believe there is a bug with Genie/HR44 playback of out of market MLBEI. I got my receiver last week and noticed that when I started a playback of a MLBEI game that was still recording, the playback would start at the current time (i.e. live). I would try to "Start Over" the playback, and the same thing would happen. The only way I could get to the start of the game was to rewind to it, but if I rewinded all the way to the beginning, it would go live again.
After this happened a few times, I also noticed the flash of an error message: "All or part of this program was not recorded due to a problem at broadcast time. Please wait while we scan the recording for a viewable content." This only flashes for a fraction of a second before the playback goes to live. If the recording has completed, the playback starts at the beginning.
I normally record an out of market team. I tried my in market team/channel and the error message did not occur and the playback started at the beginning. My theory is that the brief delay in the channel getting authorized is causing Genie to glitch. This does not happen with my other DVRs.
This is obviously a problem to try to watch a game from the beginning and have it start live. Can anyone else confirm this behavior?
Edit: I should have included software version, 0x740
Edit: The error message I'm briefly seeing now (9/12) is: "All or part of this program did not record. The channel wasn't in your package during broadcast. (721)"
