Sometimes if you wait until the next morning, the scheduled series recordings may appear properly. Sometimes not. If they don't, you can always set some single recordings so you don't miss the programme.
I also make use of the Anyplace Home Edition app to schedule recordings and to check recordings. It's sometimes easier to do using the app as it provides some additional information.
Hey thanks for the info and links! I didn't even know about the anyplace home edition app, I installed that and have been monitoring it remotely with my phone now. Thankfully on Monday morning I went into the scheduled recordings list and it was populated with 100's of episodes and everything is working as expected. I think it just had to hit Monday morning or something to fill the list or something (its a new box, was only plugged in for a day).
