    Just got home from grocery shopping and all the special channels for Premier League matches recorded nothing but D* logo and Muzak. What happened? Channels 491-495.

    Sorry!

    Does History hold any clues? What receiver?

    I was checking the channels when they should have been recording and *nothing* on all of them.

    They uplinked the feeds to the -1 locations they added instead of the normal location for the feeds. So as far as the receivers were concerned nothing was wrong.

    HR34 worked just fine. 2-hr recordings of nothing but a logo and elevator music. Each channel.

    At least Everton won. :-]

    Shouldn't the settings for HD superseding SD kick in somehow? Obviously, they didn't.

    Selecting channels, right now, the core channel numbers like 491 show EPL while 491-1 shows RGBY. Dare I suggest techs look at what they're hooking up?

    As posted in a new thread, it appears DIRECTV failed to throw some switches to bring the feed online. So, at least good news for those who thought their DVRs were wonky. :)
