    Check your DVR. The episode this week is the one that was originally supposed to air last week and got pre-empted for the 20/20 special on the CA Fires. My HR20 didn't get a guide update so it thinks it recorded the episode last week and is not set to record it this week.

    Same thing happened on my 522. Luckily I caught it and manually overrode the skip. So it looks like this is an issue for both E* & D* DVR's.

    Thanks for the heads up! I thought it was scheduled to record but wasn't!

    I did nothing to intervene and BL recorded just as it should have on Tue at 9:02 p.m.

    I just checked the recording and it's there.

    Now...it might have worked, because I deleted the prior week's recording (where fire coverage replaced BL). In any case, I didn't do anything and it recorded just fine on my HR20-700 (set as series link)

    My HR20-700s didn't record it, but my HR10-250s did without a hitch. Go figure.

    My R15 did not record this Series Link.
    The "History" had nothing mentioning why, and nothing in the To-Do list either.

    Boston Legal seems to be jinxed as far as getting recorded for some reason!! I constantly have to pay attention to my R15 to be sure it's in the TO DO list even though it is set up as a series link. I wonder if the guide data from TMS is somehow goofing things up?

    PS: It's a great show, isn't it?? :D

    There's a similar thread on this in the HR20 forum if you all are curious.

    My HR20-700 did not record the episode this week (Tuesday night) and I did delete the 20/20 special last week (without watching it, if that matters).

    I really enjoy Boston Legal--one of the few network shows I do watch--so I guess I'll have to wait for re-runs to catch this missed episode. Wonder if anyone could tell me the name of the episode so I can be on the lookout for it?

    Thanks.

    The episode should be posted on the ABC.Com web site.

    It was actually one of its most powerful episodes, too. Catch it on abc.com.

    Can anyone confirm that Boston Legal is on abc.com to watch. I went to abc website and could not find it? Can it be found someone else?

    Thank

    pete, if I could figure out which program to best download my recording of it from my HR10-250, I'd up it to my rapidshare account for you. :eek:

    It's in HD, which I have problems turning into a DVD. SD? A piece of cake.

    I couldn't fine Boston Legal on abc.com either. It was not listed as one of the episodes available.:mad: Are there other sources?

    I did change my settings to record all episodes so I guess that affords some protection in the future, although with my luck something else will go wrong.:nono:

    It is not on iTunes either. Appears to be gone if you missed it. I didn't get it on either HR20 or my 10-250. Oh well.

    BL is not a program ABC makes available online. Additionally, I didn't know about this forum, and both my HR20 and HR10-250 didn't record. I'm bummed.

    I remember this happened once last year. I eventually ended up using BitTorrent (the ONLY time I've ever done this) to download the episode from the net. It was painful and lengthy, but it eventually worked. Based on a quick search, "Hope and Glory" episode is not yet posted on any of the pirate sites. I do not recommend this approach, unless you are desperate to stay caught up.
