I was editing some of the settings for a few of my scheduled recordings and noticed that about half of the programs listed as being scheduled are from days in the past, at least as far back as a week. Is this normal? I would delete them, but I want to be sure that won't delete future recordings. If it is a bug, then it is one more reason for me to look at exchanging this particular STB.
What I think is happening is you have a recurring recording scheduled. The one it is showing is the last time it saw that show in the guide. Until the guide updates and that show is showing again it will look that way to remind you or the recurring schedule.
I've been a tech geek ever since Atari. I'll try my best to pass along any knowledge I've picked up over the years that I think may help. Please click on the if you like my posts.
Thanks Chris. I will assume that is the case. When I get home, I am going to verify that it is only showing programs whose next showing is not in the guide yet and so resulting in the first and only listing (the old one) be shown as a pending recording. But, I am fairly certain I saw programs that had since been recorded. I'll verify and update this thread.
The core problem here is that the SA/Cisco boxes don't have a place in the UI to keep track of your series recording requests. They NEED an entry in the episodes to record list or they will lose track of the program. Even then, I find that sometimes shows that don't air for a few weeks in a row will fall off the recording list altogether.
This is something that other PVRs (no names mentioned) handle MUCH better than the Rogers boxes.
