    Hi All,

    Hopefully this is simple, I searched threads and could not find an answer.

    I have had a DISH DVR since they were first released. I have always used a technique for recording something "after the fact" that I wanted to save. If I'm watching a program and see a scene I want to keep, I hit skip back or rewind, then hit pause, select Record, then skip forward or FF to Live.

    Every DVR I've ever had successfully recorded the program from the time I paused until either the recording stopped or I manually stopped it. With my Hopper 3 when I try this it always seems to start only from Live until it ends. It allows me to rewind but won't capture that part of the recording.

    Is the technique different with the H3, an I doing something wrong, or is it a bug/defective device?

    As always thank you in advance for any assistance.

    H3 is it's own animal. Some times it seems "DISH" is the only thing they carried forward.

    So you wait until the message in the lower right of the corner pops up about recording settings or do you immediately skip forward? I have a Hopper/w Sling (earlier version, same OS) and this seems to work for me but I always wait until the recording settings message appears.

    Thank you The Grove, I can't say for certain that I wait for the message but I will try that going forward.
