    When I turn my reciver on the REC button appears on my reciever but I am not recording anything. I have a couple episodes of the Gates from September 19th saved onto my dvr what is going on.

    Hit List on your remote to make sure you aren't recording something accidentally. If you aren't, then do the following:

    Do a restart and see if it clears up.

    Menu > Parental, Fav's & Setup > System Setup > Reset > Reset Receiver

    (do not choose Reset Everything!)

    then hit "-" when prompted. This will gracefully shut down the sat box, reboot it and when the picture appears, see if your record light is off.

    If it isn't, hit list and see if a program is recording that you forgot you requested, or the box decided to record on its own.:)
