    It appears that something happened last night. I have a couple HD DVR's that show nothing in the ToDo list. I know one of mine that rebooted for some reason last night. Over at DBS there's others reporting issues this morning, just wanted to mention it.

    --------
    Added information:
    The problem with missing ToDo list can generally be fixed through a reboot.

    At 5:30 ET 2/11 DirecTV began a software push to the receivers to attempt to fix this problem:

    It looks like the Date and time are all wrong and in progress recordings stopped at around 12:05am PST.

    All good here. No issues.

    I have an HR20. Is this problem with a particular HR or any model?

    My time was off, I exited out of the menu system and then all was well, including any recordings I had on the DVR. it looks like they added a new link for Hot movies or Top movies I think its called??

    DAMN!

    One of my HR20s has nothing in the list.

    The other has nothing but two series links, everything else is gone.

    WTF DirecTV!

    I'm at work so I can't check. I'm anxious to see if my DVRs are screwed up. What kind of mickey mouse organization is going on over there. How many massive screw ups are they going to have?

    I don't think it is software related, as it is affecting people with national release and test releases.

    Looks like the did something wrong in the stream again. Third time in the past 6 months.

    I'd expect a DirecTV issued reboot of all HR2x sometime later today :(

    As for anyone at home, I'd reboot your box ASAP.

    The best bet for people at work is to record the shows you want today from Directv's Website. That is what I did and it seems to be working ok for now.

    Any word it a reset will bring everything back??

    So far a reset has not brought back my Todo list, excluding things that are series links.

    It appears that any single use timers I had set are long gone.

    Just connected to the Slingbox and yep, my To Do list shows 0 items! I'm not going to be home tonight, hope I can manually record Lost or I'm not going to be too happy!

    :Edit: After setting up the manual recording, To Do now shows 1 item

    More evidence that the HR Series just isnt working. These guys need to go back to the drawing board.. better yet bring in Tivo sooner rather than later.

    Our HR21 is faster than our TiVo, which is one of your complaints whenever you get the chance to voice it. Either way this isn't the thread for debating.

    At midnight last night I had most of my guide go to 'To be announced'. Meant to reboot it but was tired and only had it on for background noise. This morning it's fine and I don't have any of the problems described in this thread.

    I have a HR21-100. It was blank in th To Do List as well. I put most of them back in manually before I looked over here. I am rebooting right now but so far it has not come back up. I have a eSata terabyte on it so reboots are not always pretty. So far I'm on my 4th reboot.

    Who mentioned speed and who's debating? This is an issue of reliability.
