I'm having a recurring problem. When I got my Hopper, I manually entered lots of shows by doing a SEARCH, key the title, using SEEK & RECORD menu, and setting new (or not). Worked.
Then after a while it stops working. Yesterday for example, I noticed on the guide LOST GIRL (ok, I'm a sci-fi fan) had no indication. I looked and I had a timer, it was there. Moreover, it HAD been working, I am absolutely certain it had recorded several shows. Then it just stopped.
When I go into the Timers, and click it to show the schedule - empty. Nothing shown. Show Skipped is on.
But I just saw it in the guide.
So I create a new timer. This time I just hit # on the guide to pull up search with the title pre-filled in, and again use SEEK & RECORD. It creates another timer. I look in that timer's schedule and they are all there -- skipped, new etc. as expected.
I look carefully at each timer, and other than this new one being in upper/lower case (from using # to pre-fill), they are identical. Just one finds absolutely nothing.
I've had this happen now maybe 5 times, and each time recreating the timer causes it to find things.
I just created one by hand, with upper case, for the same timer (LOST GIRL, in upper case), and it also finds it. So it's not a case sensitive issue. Just somehow timers (specifically SEEK timers, I've not had this happen on one labeled DVR) just quit working. But not all of them, and not all at the same time.
Anyone else seen this? Any suggestions?
I could change them all to DVR, which if I understand requires specifying a channel. I dislike doing that, as a lot of shows move around a lot, movies especially but also series.
