I just had something similar happen today. I forgot that the games started at 10. It was 10:45 and I had missed the first quarter. Luckily, I scheduled a recording (the red light was on, the little "R" was next to the title). Nope, no recording.

When I tuned to the channel, it asked what I wanted to do (those three options), I selected "keep recording". It didn't keep recording, it STARTED recording.

If you are betting on this thing recording the items on your to-do list, don't bet too much.
I think it records 50% of my "to-do" list.

This happend to me with the Tigers/Yankees game on Saturday. I had it scheduled in the TDL and it didn't record UNTIL I TURNED IT ON LIVE. Then it gave me the three choices. I said "keep recording" and it started!

Rats. I was hoping for "oh, you have to do thus & such" rather than a rousting chorus of "me too"s.

Well, at least we're in excellent company.

Funny, it doesn't have any trouble recording other stuff. Matter of fact, it records ALL the other stuff just fine.

I'll be reporting back w/ my results from complaining to DTV; the *******s.

Hi Jazaddict,

I'm not sure if you saw my posting about the Showcase feature. But, in there I also included how to contact The Office of the President. No, you won't get to talk to the President. It's basically just another customer service department. But, they respond when people get mad enough to write to him. They seem to be a bit more responsive. And, it's a free call! Or, if you want to make a bigger impact, write them a well worded letter.


Chase Carey
President and Chief Executive Officer
DirecTV
P.O. Box 6550
Greenwood Village, CO 80155-6550

Good luck!
Larry.
