    My info banner stays on when turning on the TV (RVU). When I hit exit the banner disappears and normal TV viewing is displayed even when changing channels.

    The only one I tried was that Stephen A. show on ESPN. It worked, but it took like 30-45 seconds before it started, and it was way behind what was being spoken. I guess that's the same for most live shows.

    Just found a new bug with the recorded programs list in 114b. Not as annoying as recordings disappearing, but still.

    “”Manifest” had no season/episode tag on last monday’s new show, so it appears at the bottom of the episode list (as it should.) Everything looks fine. If you scroll down to that episode, titled “Cleared for Approach” and highlight (“box”) it, then scroll back up to the top, the line below the box is now a combination of S1 E11 and “Cleared...” (would be E13, E12 is in the box.) “S1 E11” from “Contrails” overlapped with the complete “Cleared...” listing (minus missing S/E info) from the bottom of the list. It is also still at the bottom, by the way!

    This is not the end of it though. I found several other programs (that don’t have missing S/E info) that exhibit a variant of the same problem. In those cases, when you enter the episode list, the line below the “box” at the top is a combination of the program folder title (including the “unwatched” tag) and the “correct” program “S/E” info for that line and the “keep” flag, if present. Scrolling to the bottom and back up sometimes “fixes” the problem and sometimes doesn’t (stays the same or makes it wrong in a different way!)

    In ALL cases, highlighting (boxing) the corrupted listings displays the correct information for that show.

    I can’t find any rhyme or reason for folders that have the problem or don’t at any particular time, but have found that the mix of haves/have nots can change when trying to recreate the problem later.

    Can anyone recreate this on their Genie’s? I have a HR54/500 by the way and never really had the “disappearing” program problem.

    UPDATE: The corrupted line can be “fixed” by scrolling the box down until the corrupted line exits the top of the list, then when the box is scrolled back up the line reenters the screen with the correct information. If the corruption has caused the line to be sorted incorrectly, the episode list resorts to correct the error when the box reaches the top (first item on the list.)

    How long did you wait? I just used my RVU TV to view DirecTV. Like you experienced, the banner with the info drop down was displayed. But, it disappeared after 30 seconds.

    If I wasn't testing after reading your post, I would have hit exit far sooner than that, which is why I'm asking how long you waited before exiting out. .

    Has the "Missing shows from List" issue been officially fixed with the latest update??

    Actually, no. I've had it happen twice now since getting 114b....hadn't had it in months before. And the latest wasn't visible while the recording was actually taking place! In both cases, the only place I could find and watch them was in the recording history list.

    Doesn't match my experience. I've not yet seen this happen since getting 0x114b. And yours is the first post I've seen suggesting it's not fixed.

    I've seen a few posts that still complain of this problem. I don't know if they are from multiple people or multiple posts from one person.

    While the problem appears to be far less common, it doesn't appear to be totally eradicated.

    To clarify, I didn't get 114b until January and both these instances happened after that. Also, both were sporting events recording by way of "season record", so I don't know if that was a factor or not. If it happens again, I'll take some screen shots.

    Is it possible that those games were "hidden" in a folder that was named after the teams in another game of the same sport, that was recorded at the same time or after the ones that you were looking for?

    I find this bug to be frustrating.

    No, at the time there weren't any folders for anything.

    I’d do a double reboot on my boxes if they are still having this issue. You really shouldn’t be and I wonder if something is still there that’s causing it that needs to be deleted and reloaded.

    I also just experienced the issue with a recording missing from the playlist. The Michigan / Maryland game is recording on my Genie via team record. I started watching in my bedroom (HR24). When I came to the family room to continue watching, it was missing from the playlist. I found it in the "continue watching" list.

    Last night, I saw something else that might be related. The Michigan season pass showed no upcoming episodes and the upcoming recording list didn't show the Michigan game. But, when I want to the program guide, it showed that the game was scheduled to record and displayed the elongated record icon that is associated with the team record. So, I left everything alone.

    I don't know if this is consistent for every instance. But, it appears that the recording missing from the list problem may be originating before the recording actually occurs.

    I received the 0X114b update on the 16th of January. I'm also having to 'find' my season record in other locations. Had this before the update and still have it. Also, after the update my HR54 was much faster, but over the last couple of weeks it has gotten sluggish. Almost any action requires a pause before it 'understands' what to do. And the FF is still incredibly slow. My old VCR was much faster than this thing.

    With the new software (114b), when a program is played from the List, the rewind button returns the recording to the start for the first 15 seconds or so. What genius thought that was a good idea? Often, I'll want to go back 30 seconds, if I'm resuming a recording, to get the context of what is happening. Now, if I'm too quick to press the REW button, I'm all the way back at the start, having to search my way on FF to where I left off. Brilliant!

    Agree. You'd think I'd remember this, but noooo, I still do it all the time. :oops:

    I do not like this behavior either. I would prefer it be removed. I can always press Info, and then “Start Over”.
