    So you did get the update? I'm curious to see these new messages, maybe it will help us understand what's going on.

    So I was looking at my To Do list today and it has 20/20 scheduled for tonight at 9. But on the bottom, it says, "This episode was partially recorded because it became unavailable. (13)"

    So when did the HR20 become psychic? Let me reiterate, it says this on a show that hasn't started yet, but somehow it knows it will partially record it?

    I should say that I've never had a partial in over 2 months with this thing, so I am 99% confident it will record as it's supposed to, but I just think the wording is weird.

    And it did record both successfully. Any idea why it would say what it said before it even recorded it?

    So I guess no one cares about this?

    I have another issue with the History information. Here's the whole story I posted in the issue thread.

    Last night was playing the Nintendo DS while the tv was on. It was scheduled to record Seinfeld rerun on the local Fox channel at 7:30 and Sweet Home Alabama at 8 pm. At about 9:50, it was on Grey's Anatomy (so there were no conflicts for the things to record) and I noticed the audio sync was off, so I was going to change the channel and change it back to see if that cleared it up. So I pressed the channel up and it seemed to hang. I was able to press the list, but the two things weren't recorded/recording. I went to the To Do list and it still listed Seinfeld (even though the time had passed and it should have dropped from the list) and Sweet Home didn't have the R symbol. The unit was very slow and seemed unresponsive. Eventually I could get to the reset menu in the software so I did a reset. After it came back up, Sweet Home started recording (obviously didn't need the last couple minutes so I deleted that in the list) and Seinfeld wasn't in the list.

    Looking at the history, Sweet Home shows as deleted and Seinfeld shows as "partial". When selecting it, all it says is, "This showing is over." WTF? What happened to the detailed history?
