Had timers set from last season, only new. New season started this week, but timer did not record. I had to delete the timer and create a new one which seems to work. Anyone else seeing this issue?

Yep, occasionally. I check my timers repair them if needed every morning to try to prevent any issues. Sometimes things still happen.

Yikes. I have 95 timers! Granted, half of them are obsolete, like Chris Angel Mind Freak lol

I have 165 timers. When I hit around 170 I do a little purge. I don't want to get close to the 199 limit in case the wife goes nuts on me and sets a bunch of timers and hits the limit. I get a severe counseling session if that happens.

I've mentioned this before, but just so the Duggar kids record. I can deal with all the rest of the issues.

And one glitch that keeps happening has to do with MTP Daily and the following show on MSNBC. They will start being skipped for no reason. I’ve changed them to New and Repeats and it still happens. Have to check the DVR schedule every few days. No rhyme nor reason.

I'm having issues with Pawn Stars for a couple of weeks now. Every Sunday morning I check and correct timers for up coming week schedule. I then check them daily for the day, sometimes more if I have issues going on like Pawn Stars.

Been having this issue for months, but luckily only a few times.

I don't know whether it's a Carbon issue or a new-guide-data-provider issue for sure. I'd bet on the latter, but I don't think they're necessarily mutually exclusive.

I am taking it is a guide issue too.

I have also seen a new episode record twice if the channel runs it twice and both are designated as "New" in the guide. I know this started after the CU.

That is odd because I record Rachel Maddow every night and it’s never missed one

Change it to Mon - Friday and it should work. I have had to do that for most of my news programs since we switched to Rovi guide information., and I have a Hopper 3.

This exactly. The MSNBC shows are really inconsistent on the Hopper.

Rachel Maddow typically always records but at least 3 times a week it skips Chris Hayes, Lawrence O’Donnell, and Brian Williams shows. I am constantly “restoring” them from skipped state. The Dish phone techs are no help.

Happens on my H3 and also my mom’s HWS so it is clearly a guide data issue that they should fix.
