:welcome_s Idahonuke. My two 622s record what I have selected it to record. As far as I know there is no reports of people getting recordings that they did not set up. If you hit the DVR button three times on the 622 you get a list of Scheduled recordings and a list of what was recorded. From my experiences these match up. Not sure how the HR20 works since I don't have one. before Jumping have you looked into the D* forums and perhaps there is a solution to your HR20 issues... I guess your main question is.. Is the 622 record shows reliably. My opinion is yes based on having two 622s for close to a year.
