This is not 100% correct. While some people do experience it, I am able to use the scheduled recording 100% fine. Set schedule, record one, watch and delete, does record the next one. (Mind you it does have the bug where you don't see the next one in the guide set, but it is in the scheduled section, and does record). So it doesn't effect all
Well, I crossed my fingers and hoped for the best and.......the best happened!!
All of my series have recorded as scheduled even though some of them don't show up "by Date" until the day before the show is due to record. So far, I haven't missed anything that's been scheduled.
As for the latest question regarding watching while the show is still recording, I do this all the time and haven't encountered any issues. The show keeps recording and the series stays intact for the next episode.
I never use the "New episodes only" option as I don't trust the guide to show "New" all the time. As well, I don't always record the shows the first time they air so my default is "All episodes" just to be on the safe side.
Although I still have a few issues with the new guide and box (too slow to respond, no sleep timer, search function works haphazardly), I'm getting used to the new recording features and gain confidence with the functionality with each show that records as scheduled!
Good luck to everyone else working their way through the bugs!!
Yeah - to my earlier question and some of the follow ups, I don't have an issue with the series recording next episodes, etc. My question was solely around the joining into a recording in the middle and losing the ability to start at the beginning....seems like a unique issue perhaps...
oh yeah my pvr has been recording since saturday all by itself and the show it is recording is from dec 31 1969 dont think we even had vcrs back then try and erase shows and get message unable to erase cause some ghost is watching it
