On my Hopper 3, the program guide for HGTV simply says "Home and Garden Television Programing" for the 9:00 pm to 10:30PM time period tonight. HGTV's website shows 2 programs I want to record (Good Bones and Hidden potential). I tried to record the time period, but it won't record. Is there a way to do a manual timer on a Hopper3?

I've seen this happen on other networks as well. Anyone know of a solution?

While in the Timers menu press Options then select Create a Timer.

I am having the same issue. I am in hot water if Good Bones doesn't record tonite. I went ahead and selected the Home and Garden show in the guide and have that time slot scheduled to record without a manual timer.

Not sure you can do it with Dish nowadays, but just forced a connection update on Tivo and todays update fixes the HGTV errors

If you have a Hopper type receiver you just turn everything off and wait a few minutes and the guide download will start.

Thanks! At least now I can setup a manual timer. I couldn't find anything about manual timers on the Dish website.

Welcome. I sure hope Good Bones records OK. Or it will be a long hot summer for me! :(

I got SLING TV for a week for free and I noticed this same HGTV Programming last night on their grid too. So it is something that DISH is doing on both companies.
