absolutely absolutely my case as well. I found that if you set a series timer for show it record for True 3 weeks but then guess what if you checked your schedule it's not going to record. and it shows no record icon in the EPG, which means that you then have to take that instance and create a new series timer now that episode and hopefully the following will be recorded. this phenomena of having set a series timer for to work for only a few weeks then find out you've got to make a new series timer so that you can record the next few weeks of episodes and then sometimes do this again a few months later is really really annoying. Fortunately, or unfortunately, I learned this ugly lesson way back on the early Hoppers and possibly even way back on my 722ks, I can't really remember, but this phenomenon has been happening for years, however, it's happening a whole lot more recently with the Hoppers and Hopper 3's. also everything else the also everything else the OP as stated and others have posted the same problems here it's getting really annoying especially the " Science Channel Progamming" or " History Channel programming" appearing on the EGP just a few days into the future. dish has really got to get together with Tivo and fix this mess, but of course, TiVo's, formally Rovi/TV Guide, metadata has always left much to be desired.
