Check your DVRs - Scheduled Recordings Gone..

There was a power surge on Rogers Friday around 5PM. Internet access was down for about 3 hours.

When I checked my DVR, all of the "all episode and timeslot" scheduled recordings were gone. The "one episode" ones were still there. I programmed them all back in and it seems to be fine.

I don't know which areas were affected, but make sure you check the scheduled recordings in your DVRs.

Luckily, I keep a list (spreadsheet) of my "usual" recordings/channels/times, etc. So putting them back only took about 5 minutes. Weird that only the "all episode and timeslot" recordings were affected.

Why doesn't someone offer a PCI card that you can stick in your computer that has the same kind of functionality as the SA PVRs? (i.e. Rogers can control which channels it lets you view, etc.)

Except, people can use whatever software they like to control the recording capabilities (the card would just decrypt the channel and pipe the compressed stream to whenever you want to store it).

I'd buy it... and there's so much existing open source PVR software out there. I'm sure it's better than what SA is doing.
