    What's up. Accessed a future scheduled timer and wanted to modify the end time, but the options were "greyed out". Only option available was to "Protect". This event was a future (next day) event and there were no other events scheduled before or after the timer in question. Any one else experiencing this. VIP 722, long time user.

    How are you trying to alter the end time? Can you give us the properties of the timer?

    Timer was existing "new episode" of Grey's Anatomy. Selected Daily schedule, then timer then options. Screen display was usual for this action, but could not select either start early or end late as they were greyed out.
    After timer initiated, I was able to hit "record" button and extend recording (chose 1 minute) and it worked that way.

    Haven't seen this before on a 722... but have seen it on a 922!

    My workaround on the 922 when it happened was...

    Edit the timer and go to the setting of timer "type" (Auto tune, DVR, etc.) and even though it is probably set correctly... go to that option and change it to something then immediately change it back to "DVR"

    That should (if it is like the 922 bug) make the start/end times editable again.
