Does the Genie 2 have the missing recordings problem?

    I'm eligible for a free upgrade. I don't have any 4K TVs, so I didn't want to bother. But with the missing recordings bug driving us crazy, I'm willing to do it if the Genie 2 doesn't have the problem. Is the bug on the Genie 2?

    Thanks

    Any receiver starting at the HR44 and above has this problem because it is a software problem.

    Yes, as Jimmy says its a software =issue and affects the HS17 just as much as the HR44/54.

    I know it's a software issue but since the HS17 has slightly different software than the HR44 I didn't know if it had the bug as well. Thanks for the repllies.

    But it can't have exactly the same software because it has 4K support, requires a client, has more tuners, does not have PIP, etc.

    The HR54 supports 4K also can require clients and has more tuners than the 44 The same software can support lots

    Forget the software.
    Yes, they all have the same problem from the HR44 on up. Older units do not have this problem.

    Yeah, trying to understand software that the folks that made it can't understand is futile. It is what it is and that's what we have to deal with. This issue will be fixed, I haven't had a missing game in the last few days, the only thing I'm still missing is the info on which HR recorded what. I got a new update on August 2nd and that update seemed to cause the missing info. Whether it fixed the missing recording thing...I'm not sure, haven't seen any missing recordings the last few days. That update was: 0x1104.
