I am in the Philadelphia DMA and am using OTA. I set up a season pass to record on 10-1. It was for America's Got Talent. We went to watch it after it recorded and the entire hour and half had been recorded on 10-2 the weather sub-channel. I verified the settings on the season pass and they are correct. The program description of the recorded program states that it is America's Got Talent on 10-1, and future episodes are in the todo list. The DVR is a -100. Very odd. I have not seen any problem like this posted lately.

I assume when you manually enter 10-1, it goes to the proper channel? Does it happen on other channels too? (3, 6, 17, 29, 35, 57, 61)

No this was the first time that I have really had a problem. It does go to 10-1 when I enter it manually. Other season passes have recorded properly. It was just this one time. I thought it was odd/peculiar and thought it would be a worthwhile post.
