    That’s a bug of course recording on channels you don’t get. It’s also not an issue for any show you already have set up on the old gui.

    Not in my experience. I set up all of my recordings using the old GUI and had a couple of CBS recordings move to channel 390 this week.

    You're correct. If you had a recording setup on "all channels" in the old GUI, then the problem could exist on recordings for that show.

    However, of you setup the recording to a specific channel, which you can't do anymore with the new GUI, then that program is exempt from the problem.

    Just for now until they get this fixed, can you delete the series and then just choose the 1 show / episode on the channel you want to record and just press the Record button once ?

    That's exactly what I've done.

    At my dads house, his HR54 still doesn’t have the new GUI.

    Has anyone else noticed that their "upcoming recordings" list doesn't remove recordings that get cancelled? Sometimes, it will remove the record icon next to the title. But, even if it does, the title will still stay on the list.

    I'm also seeing inconsistencies between the program guide and the "Upcoming Recordings" list. For example, on the guide, it doesn't show that I'm recording tonight's episode of Scorpions on my local CBS. But, in the Upcoming Recordings list, it does show that it's going to record on channel 2 (my local CBS channel).

    It's also showing that I'm going to record Garage Rehab: Revisited on Wednesday night in the Upcoming Recordings list (despite the fact that I've never set this show to record), but the program guide shows that it's not going to record. To make matters worse, this show (which I can't cancel from Upcoming Recordings is causing a conflict in recording Amazing Race, which is the #3 priority in my Series Recording list.

    I'm starting to think that the lousy interface is actually the best thing about the recent update. As crappy as the new screens are, at least they're not screwing up recordings.

    I pay close attention to what is scheduled to record in the To-Do list, Bill. I think I have seen instances where scheduled recordings do not show with a red dot in the Guide. However, I don’t think I have ever seen recordings appear that I didn’t schedule to record. That would concern me. The only other thing that has been bothering me lately is the behavior of the blue highlighted cursor “focus” when scrolling through the Guide. As I scroll to the right, the cursor keeps disappearing. Very strange.

    That was a guide data issue and didn’t even have anything to do with the new GUI it seems... it was rampant...

    Exactly my point. Whatever happened, happened to a lot of people. Misery loves company and it's also proof that there was an issue and should get it fixed pronto...I hope.

    In the meantime, I'm keeping a very close watch on some of these recordings.

    Hey Gang... I've searched, but can't seem to find it. I think I'm ready to check out the new interface on my HR44-700. How can I force the upgrade (red reset, 0-2-4-6-8 ?) and when is the new guide in the stream? I remember years back, folks used to post the schedules for this kinda thing. Does anyone know?

    You're probably thinking about the Cutting Edge program. That has been moved from this site to iamanedgecutter.com. You don't get the "production" firmware when you force this. You get a test version.

    Right now, there is no way to force a "production" update to the firmware. You get it when DirecTV says that you get it. However, based on what I've read here, it appears that they have halted the recent firmware updates due to issues that people are having with it. If anything, people are forcing their Genies back to old firmware until the problems are resolved.

    Right now, if you have the old GUI, don't do anything. You already have the most stable firmware available. Wait until the problems are fixed and let DirecTV push it to you. Then, you can complain about the things that you don't like about the new GUI.
