STRANGE new (unique) DVR problem..

HAve had DVRs for quite a while.  Have enhanced one now, and just got hit with a totally unique problem.

 

Had several shows set to record last night.  No problem, for MOST.

 

But one now says "Epsode currently unavailable" when I try to watch it, and shows  as "loading data" in the listing.

 

Anyone ever seen this??

Sounds like an SDV channel could not be created.

Yup! especially during prime time, could be marginal SDV levels as well

Great signal levels, and all other programs worked fine, including 2 at that same time.

 

Ended up working when I tried it severala hours later.

I'm interested in actual levels and freq's as well as the time the recording was supposed to occur.

And the channel and ch #

Unfortunately, I have NO idea, as that was 8pm yesterday, and I tried to view it first about 9am today.  It was fine when I tried again just after 1pm. 

 

It was 8pm on CBS (ch 8 here).  A show at 10pm recorded fine, same channel, and played fine at 9am. Just that one show gave me a problem, and one I'd never seen before.

CBS and low ch starter tier/standard tier channels are never SDV.

Post the OOB  freq and level/ s/n  when on ch 8...

Maybe CBS flagged this as do not record... What was the program?

 Is this DVR a multi tuner one and was it set to record something on another channel overlapping that time?

What did you use to setup that record time?

Can you look at your modem log and see if there were entries around that time?
