Scheduling problem?

691 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  dhammon2
I scheduled a recording of The Diving Bell and the Butterfly on IFC (559) last week and it didn't record, history showed it canceled because the channel was no longer available (I think that was the message). I went to channel 559 and the channel was working so I setup a recording of the next two showings to be safe. Checked yesterday and neither show recorded and nothing in history about a failure. A search did not show any future showings yesterday, but I did a search on the DTV site just now and it is schedule to show Jul 25th 5:00 am. So I scheduled a recording online today.

Anyone know what the problem might be or what I can do to make sure it records this time?

I may have been confused. (that's not unusual).
Your probably right about the first error, but when I saw the error I clicked view upcoming showings from that screen and it found none, I went to the search screen and did not find any showings, so I assumed that the reschedule had been missed , but actually the time had not occurred yet, even though it didn't showing up in any searches from the DVR.
I figured this out when I scheduled the recording online yesterday and went home and there were errors for the scheduling request because it was already scheduled. I must have missed it when I looked at the "To Do List" the other day.
So the problem was a guide change, that caused the first error and then it not showing up in any searches from the DVR but it did from the website.
So now I will see if it records on July 25th.
I checked the schedule and it has the record icon. I double checked and the channel is still working so it should record.

Thanks for your help.
