    I had the same issue last night on two OTA shows. I am using the AirTV dual tuner with a Wally receiver. I watched the previous shows before the shows that were to be recorded and the signal was good.

    I will do that. Would I just reboot the EHD or everything? I tried some test recording this morning and they did not record. Again it showed the show recording and the signal was good.

    Everything, and if it is still not recording OTA, call in to Dish.

    I did a reset of the Wally plus powered off my EHD and everything recorded even though it said they did not record. My wife is happy that she can watch Grey's Anatomy. :(

    Thanks!!!

    Whatever the problem is it did it again today. I will do a reset again, but hopefully I don't have to do this every day.

    I did that and the program still is not there. I guess that's why on my picture it says "recording start not applicable", because it didn't record.

    Happened again yesterday. I wish dish would fix this problem. No way I would ever drop locals if you can't record ota.

    Same thing again today. Tried to record an ota channel. Pressed record. It said it was recording but no red light. Went into my recordings nothing recording. Pressed record again it says it was already recording. Changed to a different ota channel, which i shouldn't have been able to do without a warning, and the channel changed. I gave up.
    Is anyone able to successfully record ota with a HWS? Thanks

    As far as I know, the Hopper does not have a red light when it records. My OTA guide has been messed up for over 2 months. The guide description does not match the programming. Contacted Dish but nothing has been done. Good Luck

    You must have a newer Hopper than me because when I upgraded to the Hopper I complained about not having a record light ..

    There is a record light on my Hopper 2000 (the original ... and mine was installed the first week the receiver was released).

    both of my HWS have the red recording light

    I thought only the H3 didn't have the red light?

    My Hopper has been recording OTA fine for months but starting 3 days ago most OTA recordings not recording. I get the Not Applicable in Recording Started and Recording Stopped fields. The channels I record have strong strength. I tried restarting the Hopper with the power button on front but didn't fix it. What is the red Reset button for on the front of the Hopper? I wonder if I should try that.

    I did a 45 minute chat with Dish tech support last night was able to share with them images like I have attached but they weren't able to fix the problem.

    Update: I just had the rescan message pop-up. I've seen this before recently and did rescan and save OTA channels but didn't fix the recording problem.

    Have you tried deleting and re-entering the timers?

    Yes. I can get it to record successfully for a number of hours (less than a day) by rescanning the channels and saving them the OTA timers successfully record for a while but then start failing again. So let's say I have an OTA timer set to record 8 pm I notice at 8:05 pm it isn't recording I go to the channel I'm recording and click on it and everytime I do it displays fine. Strength on the channel I record is strong.
