    The To-Do List on all three of my boxes have de-populated, except for shows recording tonight and tomorrow.Going thru the Series Links, I'm having to tell it to record the new episodes. It's like the guide data is corrupted -- when I select the series, the episode it shows is an old one, even though the next episode is actually a first run. Any body else seeing this?

    Sounds like you had a brief power outage and it caused all of the receivers to rest and it wiped the Guide and the To o List.

    Chances are if you just let the DVR do its thing everything will get recorded OK, without you needing to reset the series links.

    And what you are seeing with the new series links is quite normal. It will always use the next available episode as a marker, even if it is a repeat, and even if you use a (later) new episode to set up the series link.

    Same here. No power outage. Records then doesn't keep them. Did it on four shows tonight.

    Did red button restart and no response to remotes.

    After Red Button restart, What response did you expect from "Remotes" ?

    Wife confirms we had a power glitch while I was at work. Should have thought of that, duh. Thanks.

    A small UPS for the DVRs to plug into will save you a lot of small headaches. I got one for each of my TVs for about $50 each.

    Yes, everything will probably come back if you leave it alone...

    Be watchful. The surge after the power restored screwed up one my DVRs and I have a whole-home surge protector connected to my circuit box.
