    I selected to record a show today and I wanted to stop the recording, guess what it seems you can’t anymore. How do you stop a recording now on a 722k? Is this a new bug??

    When you go into recording there is no stop recording there!

    Assuming you are in dual mode, if you are on TV1, you can't stop a recording on TV2. You can go to TV2 and change the channel and that should stop the recording.

    Another way to do it, is to go into single mode, hit swap and hit stop.

    That sounds the most likely culprit... dual mode.

    In single mode you should have a stop option OR if you are watching the channel being recorded, you can press "Stop" on the remote.

    But if you are in dual mode... you wouldn't easily be able to stop a TV2 timer from TV1. That would be by design.

    I was in dual mode, using the main remote and had no stop for the recording. I was using remote #1(main) and was not able to stop.

    That would be why you couldn't do it then... that's by design.

    When you are in dual mode, Remote 1 controls TV1 and Remote 2 controls TV 2.

    The whole point of dual mode is to give each TV a unique viewing experience... so allowing TV1 to stop TV2 recordings would make a lot of customers mad.

    You must have had a timer on TV2 that was set by Remote 2... and that's the remote you would have needed to press the stop button on to stop the recording.
