    Starting this morning, I am unable to watch recordings on my DVR (Hopper w/sling and one Joey). When I select a recording, I get a message that says "No episodes available" and no error number. If I transfer the recording to my external hard drive, I can watch it with no problems. I have done front panel reset as well as unplugging/plugging.

    Also, when I choose the search option, I usually see a list of popular searches before I type in the search term. When I do start typing in the search term, instead of a list of possible matches, I get a list of possible matching channel names.

    What could be the problem?

    Pull the plug.

    Count to 30.

    Plug it back in.

    As previously stated, I did that. The problem has resolved itself. I guess it was a software glitch that was fixed with the overnight update.

    I think you mean - reboot, not an update.

    "Overly concerned with minute details or formalisms, especially in teaching."

    "Someone who was pedantic was simply a tutor or teacher. But some instructional pedants of the day must have been pompous and dull, because by the late 1500s pedant had gained an extended sense referring to anyone who was obnoxiously and tediously devoted to his or her own academic acumen."

    it has nothing to do with mixing oil and water, eg REBOOT and UPDATE
