Each morning for the last week or so I have noticed when I turn on my tv and HR10-250 to watch early news before work it is tuned into ch 582 dvr showcase#xx(xx=day of month). I know for a fact that I have never tuned to this station for any reason. Anyone else have this problem.

That would be the normal nightly download of the Showcase information.

It happens around 2:00am or so

It is probably that your unit isn't schedule dto record anything else after the "download" and the time you wake up.

Those "RV" videos and such that show as a menu item under "Messages and Setup" (down near the bottom of the main menu on my receivers) - those are recorded, as Earl said, in the early morning hours from the satellite. Your DVR tunes to channel 582 to do this.
