    Happened to me tonight on my HR21/100

    Face Off, channel 244 8p CT

    Nothing else recording at the time and 80% free space.

    Just happened to me tonight. HR20-700. Alaska State Troopers. Channel 276. I had the series set for First Run. I had checked my To Do list earlier today and it was set to record.

    It happened also yesterday. At Midnight. Channel 249. Series options is set for Both.

    If you can't trust the guide and/or the DVR then things are going downhill badly.

    What does your History show about those two shows? Esp. Troopers, which may well have reruns of the show you missed.

    It also happened on all my DVRs. For both Royal Pains and Ink Master. Different channels. All DVRs. They all say "This episode was canceled because of its recording permissions. (15/0/)

    I also had checked my To Do List last night for Royal Pains. Didn't notice if Ink Master was showing or not.

    Also happened to both my DVRs HR20-100 and HR22-100 for these shows:

    9PM 245 Rizzoli & Isles

    9PM 242 Royal Pains
    10PM 331 Finding Carter

    As of yet, neither DVR has scheduled a recording of a rebroadcast of the missed episode. The HR20 does not show that it will record the 12AM rebroadcast of Royal Pains.

    Variation: missed recordings for two different shows on two different Genies tonight. My HR34 and HR44 were both set to record "Royal Pains" and "Face Off" at 9 PM ET.

    On the HR44 only Face Off was recorded, with the below message (15) shown in History for Royal Pains.
    On the HR34 only Royal Pains was recorded, with the below message (15) shown in History for Face Off.

    Message in History: This episode was canceled because of its recording permissions. (15)

    I've never seen before and I'm baffled. The HR44 was recording the US Open on ESPN but there were no other conflicts - all tuners open and nothing else scheduled to record on either Genie. I have over 80% free on both DVRs. I can't understand if there was a permission problem why the same show wasn't impacted on both DVRs.

    And why yours was not impacted on both DVRS and mine was!

    Does this have anything to do with Parental Controls?

    I noticed both Royal Pains and Rizzoli & Isles list at the top "TV-PG-L", but near the letter box and HD logos is a "15" in a yellow box followed by "Iffy for 15+".

    Yet under Parental Controls, there is no 15/15+ specific rating to allow or block.

    So just wondering if anyone having this trouble has Parental Controls turned on?

    I do have blocks set up for TV-MA. But my Rizzoli and Isles recorded fine on both DVRs, while Royal Pains did not

    The 9pm second episode of Houdini failed on my HR34 with the "recording permissions" message. It did automatically schedule the recording of the 12:31am repeat of that episode.

    No it doesn't
    The "15" in the yellow box is just the integrated information received from CommonSense Media. If you select Parental Info on the left side column you will get the detailed information about the program (from CommonSense). CommonSense has nothing to do with the ratings set in parental controls and is in no way connected with the parental controls on the receivers.

    Both my HR34 and HR44 are set with Parental Controls Unlocked - I've never even set a Passcode (PIN). I noticed that if I ever did lock them, they'd be set to block TV-14 and TV-MA. I just toggled those settings, but they should have had zero impact since the DVRs were unlocked and I'd never had a problem with TV-14 or higher-rated content before.

    I got it last night for the Royal Pains season finale. Fortunately I noticed it wasn't recording and switched over right away. The receiver also canceled the next two weeks recordings for The Bridge. I don't have any Parental Controls set. My receiver is a HR24-500.

    Happened with me recording Royal Pains last night too (9/2). I looked and saw it wasn't recording and saw that message in the history. I did notice that it was in my to do list for the later showing USA does for their shows on same night, I did not check in the morning to see if it actually recorded.

    I've had this HR34 for about a year. I've never seen this issue before. It's running 0x8d4 installed on 8/21. Also have two C31's.

    Several programs that are set up to record as a first run series did not (or were not) going to record this week. However the same series were going to record next week.

    I noticed this when Royal Pains did not record on 9/2. When I look in History is says that "This episode was canceled because of its recording permissions."

    When I checked into it further there were a few more that were not going to record. I was able to go into each individual episode and set it record it. Some examples are Hell on Wheels, The Bridge and The Strain. Even though it appeared that this weeks episodes would not record, it looked like next weeks episodes would record.

    I did a CLEARMYBOX and this weeks episodes still do not show up in the Series Manager count. i.e. Hell on Wheels has a count of (1) even though there are 2 first run episodes in the guide.

    Not sure if it has something to do with the new version of software that was installed on 8/21 or not.

    I have a bunch of programs that the History says CANCELLED on with the reason being "Due to a programming change."
    Really annoying.

    I had the same issue with Royal Pains Tues 9/2 at 9 pm. We noticed that it wasn't in the playlist at about 9:30pm so I checked the to do list and it had it in there for at 12am. This was the finale and we had been recording the whole series at 9 pm with no issue. When I checked the history for another reason I noticed the 9 pm episode was in there as cancelled with the permissions error and came on here to see what it meant. I had assumed the 9 pm one was not marked as new but the 12am one was. So at least it did record, but I am worried about this happening with the fall network shows that don't repeat at a later time. Especially ones on Fox and cw since those channels don't have on demand if one is missed.

    The Strain gives me issues every week as well but with no error messages in history, it just disappears. I also lost the 2nd Houdini too and had to find another showing.

    I wonder if the fact that a lot of these are picking up the episodes airing 3 hrs later instead mean it's getting west coast feeds by mistake.

    Last night Haven failed to record on all DVRs. Also had a weird reference to Spartan in the codes and notes.
