I've always known that this icon was a conflict no record icon; but I never used auto record; just series links. I've seen it on the guide and in the prioritizer when there were conflicts.Milominderbinder2 said:This and much more are in the Unofficial Tips & Tricks link below.
Orange X ball means a conflict. The orange star means that you are Autorecording. That star also means that you may be having problems withyour HR20. Check the Autorecord thread for details.
Autorecord is based on the Search module that has a fatal flaw. It finds channels you don't get.
To sum it up: Autorecord BAD.
