I had problems with ghost programs back in mid-December, but nothing since then... until now. Has something changed in the last few days that could cause my programs to "record" and appear on the list, but not be viewable and get removed from the list after a reboot?

Anything I can do to stop this?

Thanks.

:welcome_s to the forum.
Two things:
1)read the "unwatchable recordings on command" thread. This is what I call your "ghost".
2) If you can, you might want to check all of your cable connections using a 7/16 wrench so they are "snug". Installers hand tighten them & this isn't the same as "snug" [meaning not TIGHT but to where the connector comes in contact with the mating surface of the other connector]. :)
