    I had Dish installed today with 2 hoppers and 4 Joeys, one hopper with sling. I set PT anytime to record on the sling hopper at about 6:30 pm and nothing recorded. Is this becasue I set it up after the 6pm Sunday start time? It is 11:46 pm CST now and nothing is showing. New to Dish and just wondering about the recordings.

    The first day or two can be "flaky" as the receiver downloads all of the information needed to run smoothly. It should run smoother tomorrow and settle in by Wednesday.

    Thanks for the reply. I have been with Directv for 16 years so this is all new for me. I have had 4 DVR's (8 tuners) for years so I am hoping the 2 Hoppers will do what we need. I have always kept shows sometimes for weeks before I watch. Can you save PT shows that long using PTAT

    If you want a show longer than the 8 days set an individual timer. It will show up in timers as "skipped" as a Prime Time AnyTime event, but will show up in My Recordings and will remain in My Recordings until deleted.

    You must enable PTAT at least 15 minutes prior to the PTAT time frame otherwise it won't record until the next day.

    An easy way to save PTAT shows is to go into the PTAT folder and click on the show that you want to save. You will be given a choice to "Save This" or "Save Series". Once you click one of those the show will automagically move to your my recordings folder and then won't delete until you manually delete it.
