    I set up the following string on DirecTv and it only recorded 1 game. Can anyone help me?

    Yeah first you don't need Texas in it at all. There is only one rangers in MLB. ;). And I personally find the smaller the sting the better in general.

    But the real issue is likely the CCHAN. that's no longer correct. It should now be CCHANS. Otherwise it looks great. Assuming the games have been on and your local feed is 676.

    Wednesday A.M. 9/21 I opened sport search on my HR44-700 to check NCAA Football listing for the weekend. The *44 promptly Locked up.
    No response from remote or box front. RBR, after reset tried again and got same result, Lock up. Believe this is the first time the 44 has locked up.

    Ran sport search again last evening and everything worked perfectly.

    Do a smart search for clearmybox. (Remember it reboots immediately and then takes a full day to reload everything) I have seen that sometimes after a software update that is needed to reload all guide data etc and make it work right again. And they just started pushing a new firmware this week so that's my guess as to why..

    Just first seeing this thread...
    For me, the season record of My Teams was working great until about a month ago (maybe a little longer). I tried the usual things like deleting the teams and re-adding them, but it didn't work. I'm going to try the clearmybox suggestion tonight and I'll post back on whether it works or not.

    It is too bad because this was one of my favorite features. Once it a great while it did miss a game for an unknown reason, but it was pretty reliable overall. Then all of a sudden nothing.

    Since the clearmybox seems to work temporarily, is it possible that the problem has something to do with having too many series records and things like that. In other words, could it be that once the ToDo list gets overly complicated the box starts to screw up on with this feature? Just speculating...

    My Teams recording working fine until yesterday. Had to set up manual recordings for the Warriors and the Hokies. Annoying

    To many things in the to do list isn't an issue for anything.

    Do the clearmybox search or reboot the receiver and then reboot it again immediately after it comes up. Then let it be overnight.

    The double RBR reset seems to have worked. I have my sports teams queued up in the to-do list this morning. Thanks for the solution.

    Quick update. I had to do a RBR because the unit locked up when I went to look at My Teams. Anyway, after the single RBR it is now correctly setting up the recordings. Of course, some of the games show that it will record the wrong feed, but I think that is OK because it will fix it when it realizes I don't get those channels. At least that is what it has done in the past.

    I'm guessing this won't last, but I'll see how long it works for and then try the other methods (double RBR and clearmybox search) to see if they give better results.

    With all this effort to get a feature to work right and stay working right, I have found it much easier just:

    Go to My Teams > Team Pages

    Click on Cavs, Warriors and Knicks, select upcoming to record and check back every few daysI don't miss any recordings and it's no more stressing than wondering what it going to go wrong or stop working next.

    I no longer concern myself with whether this feature works...I no longer need. it.

    The problem with hoping against hope that after years D* could get this feature to work reliably, is that the only way you find out it hasn't, (yet again), is to miss the recording.

    This feature looked spectacular when it was introduced, but has never worked consistently for me. The best predictor of future behavior, is ....past behavior. Connect the dots.

    Now if I miss a recording, it is quite clear who is at fault.

    Thing is for me it always works so it's a set it once and walk away thing for me. But I've seen several people with league pass have issues so... I get it... but id use a Boolean before I ever did what you are doing.

    I just thought I'd post another quick update. After about a month, my team/season record is still working correctly. Not sure if this means the issue is has been fixed by DirecTV, but all I did was the single RBR a month ago.

    Also, I had mentioned that the To Do list was showing some recordings on incorrect channels. As it had done in the past, the channel was automatically corrected when it was time to record. Sometimes I still have extra empty recordings on the channel I don't get, but I always had a recording on the correct channel as well.

    colorado,...
    My HR44 does this....records the correct channel when the ToDo list shows the opposing teams channel. However when the local game is on the sub channel...IE 681-1, the HR won't find that channel and subsequently nothing gets recorded.
