    Weird thing this morning. I was going to watch "The Good Guys" on Fox last night and although the progress bar on my HR23 was fully "red," indicating that the whole show had recorded, halfway through watching it, it skips back to the very beginning of the show.

    Which sucks :(

    Has anyone had that problem before? None of my other shows seem to be affected, although they've all been half hour shows. Corrupted guide data, maybe? I know there have been a few people dealing with that issue today ;)

    I think it more than just a few people. It's made the top line in a number of news groups.

    What time did the recording start? If it was early AM then it's a good bet that the guide data bug might have caused your recording problem.

    The same thing happened to us yesterday in SE Wisconsin. We were watching "Lie to Me", recorded Monday night on Fox. When we got to the halfway point, it jumped back to the beginning. Numerous tries got the same results even though the entire show was recorded. We finally got to see the whole program by skipping to the end and rewinding back to the middle. :confused:

    Both of our HD DVRS were affected by the DirecTV glitch yesterday but, after resetting a couple of times each, both seem to be working OK.

    I watched "Nurse Jackie" on Showtime HD (east) live on Monday night and all was fine but last night when my Wife tried to watch recording it got about 10 min. in and jumped back to beginning. I can jump past the spot and watch what follows but still missed a minute or two of the show. The same issue occurred with Monday night's recording of "Saving Grace" on TNT HD. All recordings before Monday night are fine and all recordings last night were fine also.

    What most likely happened is that you lost signal while it was recording. The HR's, unlike the TiVo's, show a completed bar for recording time regardless of how much was actually recorded. I've seen it happen a few times myself. Sometimes you even get a pop up message at the beginning of the recording saying not all of it recorded due to loss of signal, but not always.

    I don't think I made it five minutes into the show. It puts the "ew" in "stewpid".
