    Was having good luck with my HR34. Now out of the blue none of my OTA channels will scan in via the AM21 and all of a sudden shows that I set to record are magically changed tO show as not being recorded because of a non-existent conflict. I have set the receiver to record the football game today and it takes then when I go to my to do list is appears a will not record because of a conflict yet there are no other shows that are set to record at the same time to be in conflict.

    I have been told that this is a recent issue, it affects very few people and they are working to fix it. In the meantime a reboot should get you going for the short term.

    I think I might be having a similar issue. For the past 3 sundays, Sunday Night Football (SNF) has not recorded. It is scheduled to record at 5:30 PT, and at 5:29 it did show in the "todo" list. But the recording never shows up, and when I try to tune the channel via the guide, I get a black screen (but the play bar acts like it is tuned to channel 805, a music channel). After a reboot, the recording starts.

    What is even stranger to me is that by week #3 I had set my other PVR, an HR24, to record SNF also, and it did not show up there either. But the channel was tunable manually from the guide, so I tuned to it, and started a recording manually.

    Also, it is worth mentioning that SNF is one of six manual recordings that I am doing (all NFL football) but there are little to no conflicts at the recording time. Maybe one or two other shows, tops. SNF was #6 in my series recordings priority during weeks 1 and 2, but by week 3 I popped it up to the top (hoping against hope that it would just record).

    Is there any way I can get this info to D* without being a part of the cutting edge program (I like to stay away from the bleeding edge when at home).

    Thanks in advance.
