    I have tried everything but season record continues to just stop working. I’ve also set up Booleans with no luck. This is driving us nuts. Today, I got on the box and saw that it decided not to record the Predators/ King’s game. Last weekend it decided not to record my Purdue football game.

    Anyone have any ideas? I’m about at the end of my rope. Is there a series limit on the HR44?

    Yes, I’ve done CLEARMYBOX.

    I’m on release 0xd80.

    That’s very odd, since not everyone is reporting it like usually happens when it breaks. When did you last do the clear my box? And have you tried doing just one rbr and see if that fixes it?

    I’ve done the CLEARMYBOX at least twice over the past few months but the problem keeps popping up. I also will do a rbr and the problem will show up again.

    I’ll try another rbr, but this is getting old. Is there a limit on series links on the HR44?

    100 is the limit.

    How many things you have recorded on your dvr?

    I don't know about the ball games recording but I do have first hand experience of the Guide data being wrong lately. I had 1 show that did not have a first aired date and my DVR thought it was new and recorded it. The show is at least 2 weeks old and I had already seen it.
    The next one had a current date and the DVR recorded it as new but indeed again it was a couple of weeks old and I had already seen it.
    Both of these happened on the same night but on different channels. One on NBC and the other on CBS.

    An example of a ARSL that doesn’t work:
    AALL PURDUE EVENTS & Sports, Football

    Doesn’t show anything, but there is definitely a listing with Purdue and Sports, Football in the guide.

    When I do the following ARSL, lots of stuff shows up along with the game I’m looking for (which leads me to believe the guide data is wrong):

    AALL PURDUE & Sports, Football

    Somehow the word “EVENTS” is screwing up the search for Purdue football games but when I used the same search (with EVENTS) for the opponent on the same game, the game shows up.

    I have read that BOOLEANS cause a lot of problems. Try writing them down or take a picture of each of them so you can easily recreate them and then delete them all and see if your problem is still there.
    Set up the recordings from the Guide only and see if that helps.

    I didn’t originally have booleans set up on the genie and the season record still had issues.

    Anytime it has an issue, check the Original / First aired date and see if it is current. You might have to set it to record ALL and then delete the repeats that you have already watched.

    Where you heard that they where wrong. Period. I use booleans constantly and they cause no issues. And events is always the keyword to get the games and not pre and post game shows.

    There was a time a while ago that they screwed something up in the software that requires the boxes to be reboot once a week so they’d work again. It got fixed months ago though. its possible the issue is back.

    It sounds like corrupt guide data and that you are getting a lot of it. I’ll try and look at my guide data to see if Purdue games are missing events as well. If not, it would point to your machine having database issues.

    How many recordings do you have on your DVR right now?

    The guide shows the word “Events”. For instance, Purdue is playing Northwestern next Saturday. If you set up an ARSL with AALL NORTHWESTERN EVENTS, it will show the game in the results. But if you use AALL PURDUE EVENTS, it doesn’t show up

    Oh that is weird. I’ll test it on my machine at home latter to see what I see.

    Apparently I was wrong about the search for Purdue vs northwestern. The game doesn’t show up regardless.

    With my HR44/500 (w/ 0xd80 updated 9/12 ) the past month or so my program searches for individuals has stopped working. like Charles Barkley, Don Rickles etc. didn't see another recent thread so guessing it's just me ?

    Thought it would just clear up after a week or 3.
    the hr20 & hr24 working well still. never had this before in the past 11 years.
    thanks for reading

    I have my 44 set up so it records all the Giants, Jets and Yankees games...works well most of the time, but I don't trust it. It has to be watched. It didn't record last Sunday's Giants game. I back up all my sports recordings on a couple other DVRs.
