    Just looked at my list. There is a DirecTV Movers Deal five minute recording from channel 9981 showing up. It is the same 30 second commercial for the movers deal repeated 10 times.

    No one in our house recorded this and I can't even access the channel it lists (9981).

    Anyone else have this? Is this something new for them (sending us commercials to our DVRs)?

    Directv has the ability to record commercial clips to your DVR. So when there's a place in shows for local cable/SAT inserted commercials, its pulled from the partitioned DVR memory.

    While I suspect a glitch in that you can see it in your Playlist, the practice of them doing this is something they started some time ago.

    Dish has been doing this for a while with previews of upcoming PPV/VOD releases abd special promos.

    I checked both of my DVRs and I don't have that recording.

    I knew about their ability to insert commercials, I've just never seen them on my DVR. "Glitch" is probably the best answer for why I can see this recording.

    Try restarting the DVR, chances are the recordings will dissapear from your playlist.

    I just deleted them. Maybe I won't have to see that commercial anymore? :D

    This same thing happened to me-I figured I accidentally recorded it, or one of the kids was playing with the remote, OR D* did it. I guess I'm not the only one.

    It showed up in a Banner Ad this evening in the Guide. I FFd thru it and deleted it.
    What is annoying is that it was in the News items also and had to delete it there.

    A lot of them show up in DIRECTV2PC under the DIRECTV Cinema Tab.
