My 921 missed two off-air channel recurring (weekly) timers on OTA channels this evening.

Rebooted during the second show and the timer started (show in progress.)

I have not had a problem with missed timers prior to L.273 So not only are missed timers NOT fixed in L.273, but this software rev. seems to actually cause them. Between this and the persistant and acute SAR issue, we have a significant problem with L.273.

I got a ZSR last night trying to record an OTA channel. This is only my second one in two years. I was watching an HD program on the other tuner.

Since 273 the timers fail 2 or 3 times a week. My wife is going to throw the 921 out the window.

I set timers on UNI HD for the Olympic semi-final hockey games last week (Fri 2/24). I have no idea if the timers fired early or late, but when I went to watch them last night, my 921 hadn't recorded hockey. The listing showed it as hockey, but I fast forwarded thru both games and I have no idea what was recorded, but it sure wasn't hockey.

Missed Mon-Fri Comedy Chan 3/1 11:30PM MST record after 11:00 record worked.

There may have been some movies missed this last week, too. Hard to reconstruct those with no guide to go backward in. It is hard enough to set up with only 36 hr or so guide.

In each case there was no residual listing in the timers. There are residuals for some that were sucessful. Why? Just cause I peeked at the show while recording?

I've had some timers missed, although I can't recall details.

Interesting that there's no back capability on the EPG. I've found that capability while watching a Cable TV PVR at a relative's. Don't know how far back it scrowls, but saw at least six hours back. This 9 day guide fiasco and the 921 overall problems have me considering cable. Have been with Dish since 2002.
