    General Hospital says new on ABC at 1 pm PDT in the guide, but does not say new on SoapNet at 7, 9, or 11 pm. The program description is the same for all showings.

    Now are you willing to try a manual recording on SoapNet as I and others have suggested several times? :bang :bang :bang

    Are you asking yet another question? I expect only ABC will record in first run if you ask only for first run recordings, but I have no idea for sure. You still have not said anything about trying a manual recording of Soapnet. I suggest you at least try this approach. It is not difficult. You are wasting more time asking questions in this thread instead of trying solutions people are providing to you.

    And, just for kicks, please try looking for and using the punctuation keys on your computer. :hair: Proper punctuation makes the messages easier to read.

    Did you try manual recording as suggested in the other Verizon forum?

    What exactly is the error message? By the way, it's "manual" not "manuel."

    Here is the procedure for manual recording with a FiOS DVR:
    Press the Menu key, then select the following items by using the four arrow keys and OK button:
    DVR, Create New Recording, Manual Recording
    Fill in the channel number(143 on my set), start date (today), start time (7 pm), and end time (8 pm). Click on the Recurring line to bring up a list and select weekdays. Hit OK, then move to the Save button on the right and hit OK again. If you do not save your setting you will not get any recording at all. You should now have a recording of the selected channel every week day between 7 and 8 pm.

    Manual recordings will not affect any other recordings unless you run out of space on your hard disk.

    Could you please let me know whether you have set up a manual recording as I have repeatedly suggested?

    I have told you exactly how to do it. If you follow my directions you should not get an error message when you set up the manual recording. Be sure you choose the right channel, right start time, right end time, and specify that you want weekdays only to record. You do not need and cannot use the name of the program when you set up a manual recording.

    I cannot answer your question unless you provide more details, such as exactly what you are looking at when you say "if the show has a folder next." A manual recording will not include the name of the program.

    Try to post longer messages and include punctuation, like commas and periods, please. :nono2:

    You obviously didn't pay attention to my whole message. What error message? You've got to give us more details or else we can't help you. Make your posts longer and provide more information.

    I actually set up a manual recording for channel 143 every weekday from 7 to 8 pm. Once completed I got a "success" message onscreen. My scheduled recordings list now show "Recurring recording" every weekday for that time. The description for the recordings gives some details for each recording but does not mention the name "General Hospital."

    If all else fails, I suggest you call Verizon and ask a customer service representative to walk you through the steps of making a manual recording.
