On my 501 went to check my timers and guess what. The ones on Viacom channels are gone.

If/When the channels return I will need to recreate them.

Anybody else see this. My specific were CSI on CBS.

Wouldn't you want them to disappear? A lot better than recording nothing i'd assume.

There is a MAJOR problem with any VIACOM owned channel. Seems they tried to gank Dish and Dish did not renew the contract. These channels include MTV, VH1 Comedy Central, BET and CBS. Yikes!

It is possible that once the channels come back so will your timers.

It is also possible that Echostar could force your DVR to record the "Charlie Chat" instead of "Monday Night Football". The peasants might revolt though. ;)

That reminds me of something that used to happen with either my old DishPlayer or maybe my 501 - sometimes a "recording" would show up in the list even though it wasn't due to an event. It was typically a help guide on new features. I suspect it was sent down using the same method & bandwidth as software updates. A really good idea - they should continue doing it!

My 721 recorded a half hour of "off air - please press info" tonight.

SimpleSimon, I remember that on my 508 when they introduced slow-mo with a few other features. There was a 5 min clip showing us how to use them. I thought it was a great idea!
