    I have an HR24 DVR. I record 3 episodes of an old tv game show early every morning and watch them over breakfast. This morning two of the episodes recorded twice. The episode at 6 am recorded twice (same time same channel) and the 6:30 am episode also recorded twice. 7 am recorded just once. To be clear, the duplicate show was same time, same channel, and it recorded twice. Didn't even know a DVR could do that.

    Any thoughts.

    If it happens again I’d hit the red button reset on it. It has happened before but so very rare..

    There was a time when I thought the 200s were the best 24s. In the last year I've lost two of them for reasons similar to the problems you're having. Now I think they're just getting old and nothing we can do will help that. Once they (24s) get wonky I think it's replacement time. What else can you do? A new drive won't help these problems and there's no other fix for them.
