I have 26 different shows recorded on my dvr with each one having various # of episodes. When I log into Dish Anywhere from my iPad or iPhone, it only shows 13 shows.

One show has 13 episodes recorded but on the iPad and iPhone it only shows 3. On the DVR, the last ep. 49 was recorded on 3/10. The iPad and iPhone shows the last ep 45 recorded on 3/6. It seems I can't see any show after 3/8 that was recorded or via PrimeTime Anywhere.

I did uninstall and reinstall the Dish Anywhere app on both my iPad and iPhone and reset the Hopper 3.

DIRT had me unplug my receiver and log my iPhone and iPad out of Dish Anywhere. This didn't solve the problem.

Is anyone else having problems not seeing all recorded shows via Dish Anywhere?

Yes....this is a known issue if you read some of the threads. SOMETIMES, if you disconnect from your wifi, reconnect your wifi and then restart the app and pull up your recordings, you can see your actual recordings for just a few seconds. Sometimes even long enough that you might actually be able to start a transfer or two....but then it reverts back to the 13 shows that you've been seeing. It's been an extremely frustrating bug for me because I use the transfer feature DAILY, and have been unable to do so because of this. I promise to post a fix if I can figure one out.

Thanks for the info.

I have similar issues, if I remember correctly, sorting alphabetically helped.

I have the same problem. I haven't counted but I know there are several programs that do not show up. I have tried sorting alphabetically and by date and it did not help me.

I have seen the same issue. Sometimes, I have to restart the Dish Anywhere app a few times before I can get it to display my recorded shows. Sometimes, it just doesn't work and I have to wait and try again later. Dish Anywhere is a very buggy piece of software.

I too suffer with similar problems. Only some of the older dvr events show and the prime time anytime says there is nothing there and I need to turn it on at the receiver. Obviously pta is on the apps just doesn't see anything.

Same issues here. I posted a new thread about this before finding this one which I'll probably just delete now. Wish they would fix this soon. Makes the app practically worthless.

This issue has definitely NOT been resolved on my HWS. Same issue with many missing recordings. Shows with multiple episodes do not show all of them. Makes it impossible to view recordings without skipping some of the episodes.

It has not been fixed completely. Using iPhone and iPad it shows all my recordings. Using PC or Mac web browser (Chrome, Safari, etc.) it does not show all recordings.

Lately, no matter what recorded show I choose, Dish Anywhere goes to live TV. No way to view any recorded shows! Very frustrating!
I'm having so such problem, or any of the other above discussed, on my PC or ios devices. Have you logged out of, then back into Dish Anywhere.

I've tried various browsers with Windows 7 and do not see anything that was recorded yesterday. Firefox, Safari, Chome and IE. I have never logged into Dish Anywhere with some of these browsers.

Well of course you did, otherwise you would not have been on at all. So have you logged out and back in?

Actually, NO I have not. I never logged into dishanywhere.com from firefox on my work computer. Get it now?
Apparently you are not getting it AT ALL. You have to log in at SOME point on EACH device/computer/browser to start/activate/reativate your account/connection.
