    We have it set to record 'first run' only, keep 5, keep till disk full. Yet, last night's new Mad Men episode did not record. Luckily we were home to catch it and I noticed the record light was not on. Did this happen to anyone else?

    Is there anything in the history about it? If so what does it say?

    Also, I would like to mention that you can download Mad Men from DIRECTV On Demand commercial free if you would like.

    Lower...
    My SL caught the 11PM showing. It's set for "both" however, not just "first run". Could there have been a problem with the GUIDE data? If so, I wish the HR would just use Original Air Date to determine "First Run" status and not rely on the data being properly tagged. It's on our Wish List. /steve

    Yup, same here. (same setting as yours) but mine did not record Sunset Tan! Plus, it recorded The Hills 6 times! (the same episode) What is going on? I just check a few minutes ago, and it's going to record the The hills again!

    On the Sunset Tan Issue (HR21-100 BTW) it shows it recorded, but when you click on play it said, "Would You Like To Delete This Show". So I set it up again to record (Sunset Tan) this morn, and the same thing happen. Good thing my good old HR20-700 recorded it! (but it changed channels for some reason) I always shut down my machines on an XM channel so the hard drive is not always spinning. Something is going on, looks like it "Backup Recording Time Again". :nono2:

    There was an inconsistency with the guide data on Mad Men. The 10:00 ET showing had "No Information Available" but had the title correct. All other showings had a short accurate description. I noticed that during a commercial break (egad! He was watching it liiiive!!)

    Yes... I noticed that too. Said the same thing in 'manage recordings' as I recall.

    Michael: nothing for it in history.

    C'est la vie. Thanks for the DoD tip!

    And the time I had to use it last year, the DOD version looked much better Picture Quality-wise than the junk we get off AMC each week.
