Today I noticed that only a few of my timers are working. I have 80 timers and many act like they have no upcoming events. The guide is fully populated. If I make an entire new timer it seems to be fine. I've noticed this in the past on a few timers, but never have this many timers failed at once. Any thoughts on fixing this so I don't have to recreate all my timers?

All my timers weren't recording either. I just wiped them all out and will redo them as the week goes on. It was due for a house cleaning anyway! :D

This is the first "spring forward" for the Hopper so they might not have encountered this before it shipped last year. Hopefully they take notice and figure out how to overcome this problem.

Same here. Walking Dead and Girls not recording. All Fox shows are though. Missing a bunch through the rest of the week as well.

I am having this exact same problem. I am mad because I have like 90-100 timers, and do not feel like going through, deleting them, then redoing them... provided that would even work.

I first noticed this maybe an hour or two ago when PTAT should have been recording, but wasn't. I then noticed that in my daily schedule, none of my timers were listed there.

Walking Dead is recording right now. All timers fired today. No problems.

Try putting the hopper and joeys into standby, powered off, for twenty minutes and that should fix it. If you have an older VIP box, put both tuners into standby and wait 20 minutes. After this, check the daily schedule.

I noticed around noon today that only about half of my timers for tonight were showing up in my daily schedule. I checked my list of timers and those shows were still listed as a timer. But the guide didn't show these shows as scheduled to record. Actually they didn't have any icon next to them in the guide like they usually do. I did a red reset from the front of the hopper and left for about an hour to go eat dinner. Came back from dinner and they were all back.

This has been a problem for quite a while and it seems to pop up when you either get close to the timer limit (96) or the event limit (574.) What we've had to do to temporarily correct it is to edit the timer from DVR to Auto Tune, save it, check the schedule to make sure that the missing events are shown and then editing the timer again back to DVR and then save it again.
