This past Thursday I FINALLY got my DVR/HDTV hooked up. First let me say that COX has this ridiculous policy in which you HAVE to get professional installation on the DVR/HD reciever. They charge you FIFTY DOLLARS for the guy to come to your house and plug the coaxialcable from the wall to the box, then the component cables to the TV and then plug in the power. Friggin ridiculous. I wired my complete home theatre system with 6 different components and all wires hidden under the floors/behind the walls with zero problems and yet they charge me $50 for something they say needs professional installation when all you do is plug in component cables like pretty much every other video device you hook up? The ORIGINAL digital cable box was harder to hook up (that was a breeze too though) than this one because you had to plug in like 2 or 3 coaxial cables into different spots, and they didn't make me have "professional" installation for that, I just had to o there and pick up the box. Same thing with high speed internet, it takes more time and effort to hook all that up but they don't force you to get pro installation.
ANYWAY, lol, my rant is done, onto the point of the thread.
OK, so I've had it since Thursday and I haven't really checked out the DVR function til now. I had set up a few shows since then to record, but I never went back to watch them, Well, just now I went to check em out (since it's halftime in all the football games, lol) and there's nothing there! I press the "DVR List" button on my controller but the list says "No saved shows are currently available" yet I go to the next menu to view the "scheduled recordings" and there is the whole list of the shows I set to record, yet none of them did. Any idea why? I just tried to get to the troubleshooting page on COX's website to email them or live chat but I got the "404 page not found" error.
