Well, here's a fun one. I was watching a recording that turned out to be a rerun. So I stopped it, told it to delete it, and the PVR went back to the recording list.
The program was still listed there.
I figured I accidentally hit "no" instead of "yes", so I selected it and told it to delete it again. I get a popup: "Sorry, [show name] cannot be deleted right now. It is currently being viewed." Um, no it isn't: I'm watching Comedy in the background.
I try a few times, but it refuses. So, I select to play the recording. The screen goes black, the info banner pops up with the show's name and info, and audio starts playing. Except, it's audio from whatever's on Comedy.
I try stopping, but nothing happens. Fast forward - it tries, and when I resume there's still no picture but I can hear Comedy in the background. Oddly enough, I can pause or rewind audio for the recorded buffer and hear from the moment I first stopped the show I was trying to delete.
I can't change channels, or get any other recorded show to start playing - it's stuck in a state thinking it's playing a show that I'm now pretty sure has already been deleted.
And the fun part: the recording is now missing on the list.
TIme for another reboot...
