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.

I was told the power surge was much more widespread. It affected areas of the blackout 2 years ago. However, this time, the backup system kicked in as designed. This is what I've been told so I haven't confirmed it.
Eug, this week I noticed the "(HD)" was dropped from the title of both CSI:Miami and CSI:NY. That's why the shows didn't get recorded. I had to tape both shows off the West coast feed. I've decided for now, I will delete all my repeated recordings set for HD shows and simply program it week by week.
