I have tried a half dozen times to record NGC Sneak Peaks and have yet to do so successfully. Am I missing the boat or doing something wrong?

My last failed attempt was on Wednesday (early AM) when I tried to record sneak peak #20. I was running the 0X158 CE and the history tells me it was "canceled". Wish I could say this was my only failed attempt but that's not the case.

Any advice?
If you put your mind to it you can accomplish anything.

I had the same problem last week, I set a manual record and the infor provided was that the show became unavailable before it was recorded. I don't know how a show can become unavailable when it was set as a manual record. Shouldn't manual records just record whatever is on whatever channel it is set for?

I have recorded almost all of them with no problems. Very good quality HD!

I recorded one program (a few weeks) that actually played all the way through. I tried two other times (when they first started) and they failed. I have spring leaves in my way now so I am not even sure I can record them.

Is the sneak peak on the 110 or the 119?
