The original thread about the sneak peeks got a little off in the weeds and also has dropped off the first page (i.e. message board death).

Are their any updates as to why it is so difficult to get them to record? Or if they are even working on it?

I have been able to record 2 of the 12 after numerous attempts.
The history entry always says, "recording deleted due to loss of channel".

Could we at least be able to watch the partials?


Thanks.

I had problems early on, but I haven't had any trouble since. When I checked the original sneak peek, sometimes the show was on a different channel than advertised.

I was able to get #6 and 7, I think, but those were the only two.

I setup the recording by going to channel 98 in the guide, hitting left arrow to highlight the channel and then info to bring up the list of programs.

I hit the record button from here.

Is anyone else using this method and is it working?

I doubt that's the problem based on the entry in the history log, but I thought I would ask.

Sorry for the shameless bump, but I can't believe nobody cares about this.

Interesting. I have not tried to record any of the sneak peaks yet, perhaps I'll try to schedule a recording when I get home.
