Has anyone else had an issue with hopper 3 not recording shows. I have 2 CBS soap operas set record and they don’t always record. I did notice that the guide was listing shows as reruns when they weren’t so I set timer to record reruns and new one. Today it missed recording both soaps on CBS but did record the ABC soap. This is a serious problem when the wife tries to watch her soaps I have to take the abuse not dish. ANY HELP WILL BE APPRECIATED. Thanks

I noticed this morning that my B&B timer wasn't set to fire so I set it back up. Guide has been acting weird lately. I check my timers for the day every morning to make sure they are all set. I understand the wife issue. Have the same problem. Got to take the abuse if something doesn't record.

Thanks for the reply I‘ll delete the timer and put it back in again, I can’t get the wife to check her timer when she sitting in front of TV.

You don't need to delete the timer. Just select Restore in the drop down menu in the guide.

It's not working that way. Timers I've had in the queue for over a year now (Like 60 Minutes, Motorweek, Saturday Night Live, etc.) show "no timers scheduled" so when the show airs I have to manually add a 2nd timer now

I checked this morning and both soaps are scheduled I got the drop down menu it doesn’t have a restore tab just edit and delete.
Yep, guide has been very shaky lately. Good habit to check every morning your very important timers if you want to keep the Mrs happy happy. What is your software version?

I don’t know the software version, Not sure where to find it. I did set a manual timers for the 2 cbs shows so one of the timers should work.

Shakely lately? The people on this forum have been complaining about programming issues since I joined in June and it was probably before that.

Of course that is what I meant! :D Thanks for shaking my brain loose....

Or, as Dan Quayle said in a speech to the United Negro College Fund, May, 1989:
What a waste it is to lose one’s mind. Or not to have a mind is being very wasteful. How true that is.

For those of you who have never heard their slogan before, it is:
A mind is a terrible thing to waste.
