Why have I been getting the Daily Show recorded on 8327? This channel does not exist and the recording is always blank!!!

To clarify that was the actual channel that was remapped to that number. This was done so that once the deal was done it was a very simple process to restore services. However since guide data still loaded your DVR recorded it as the DVR doesn't care ,what channel number changes happen, it just follows the rules setup.

I am aware of the Viacom dispute. Your answer doesn't really answer the question though.

In order for channel 8327 to come online, DTV had to do it. Why did they make a channel with no video feed, other than the DTV logo? Why did they make a channel that claims to be a recording of the Daily Show when it's not? Why did they trick me:rolleyes:

Have you been hiding under a rock? :lol:

During the Viacom dispute their channels were remapped to 8+their normal number as a placeholder for them. Because of this remapping your series links for those channels were changed to the 8+ number as well and continued to record. This was done so that once the channels came back on, today, your SL's would be unaffected.

Comedy Central is on channel 249. Not sure how that equates to 8327.

Comedy Central was moved to 8249 during the outage. Like I said, each channel was moved to 8+ their usual channel number. That means 8327 would have been CMT which is normally 327.

I assure you, as Draino said, DVRs were "recording" Comedy Central programs on 8327, not 8249.

Of course, it's obviously a moot point now.
