    The blacklist on NBC 10 Philadelphia was scheduled from 9-10 pm. It seems many weeks at least one program does not record, and tonight was the blacklist. Playlist says it started at 10 pm and its 0 minute recording. The only other recording at the time was Grey's Anatomy from 8-10 and 10-10:30 Lip sync battle.

    Did anyone else have the same problem? We're finding this happening more and more. I stay away from CE on this machine because NR is buggy enough.

    It looks like it recorded on my 54, on NR.

    Recorded fine on my 44 but this appears to be some type of glitch for sure. Several times we have had the same problem! We go into the list to watch something and when we click on it it shows 0 mins recorded. If you go into the history it will probably show "recorded" but that won't help you. Hopefully you will be able to pick it up On Demand. I accidentally deleted Blue Bloods the other day but was able to watch it a day later On Demand.

    This episode was canceled because a broadcast update did not arrive in time. (13)

    This is what my history shows when it fails to record.

    Do you think the hard drive is going bad? It's not the first time this has happened. I don't think 30skip works either according to my wife. she's just been using fast forward. She mentioned to me that the option to start over a show in progress never works either. The platform just seems buggy lately. Is a kw search for clearmybox in order here?

    I doubt any of them are HDD related. A double reset might help, but don't use the red button for that.

    I have a hr34 that's been given me 0 min recordings, 1 hour recordings but only plays for 45 min and wants to delete and yet 90% of my other recordings are fine.

    So in history it says 9 pm , partial and yet at the top of the screen it days it was recorded at 10:00p. Explain that one?

    kW search clearmybox the same thing as a double reset right?[​IMG]

    Then the thing with the start over feature is that it says there was a problem connecting to the Internet. I click test connection and it says I can now access thousands of on demand titles , directv cinema, etc... Result code 88-865. Tv apps never come up, it says loading but no menu appears. Streaming on demand says the same thing about connecting to the Internet but again that screen tells me that I can now access all of that stuff.

    Something is def. wrong with this box.

    This is due to an error in Guide information. It's happened to me and I don't know any way around it other than setting up a manual scheduled event.
