THE bug is back

Check your programmed recordings.

The "hour change" bug is back.

I just experienced it tonight.

Happy for you.

According to other forums, not everyone that lucky.

In the past I found timeslot scheduled recordings would be messed up. I now set to record all times and delete the occasional repeat. This seems more stable and it catches those "special" air times we sometimes see.

Jake,

One of the shows that didn't record this year was "Sarah Connors Chronicles". It was set to record all shows at all times. The way the PVR missed it, is a first (never seen the PVR act this way before): Sarah Connors was at 8:00pm (normal airing time) but the PVR decided it was at 9:00pm. So it didn't record at 8:00pm, and when 9:00pm came, the PVR didn't record because hte show running wasn't Sarah Connors Chronicles.

Lucky me, I was home that night checking what the PVR was doing. Usually, I lose a lot more shows.

I also had another recording that recorded a show everynight at 7:30. It recorded Wednesday but forgot the other days... Go figure!
