• What Program Guide are you using?
• How often is it updated?
Every Day - that's the only choice other than Manually.
• Are the phantom recordings labeled as shows you meant to record, or something else?
No - they come back with their own titles - from the infomercial
• What does your Guide say about what was supposed to be on during the recorded time slot; the show you wanted or the show you got?
The guide agrees that "paid programming" is supposed to be in that slot. Which of course I NEVER SET UP TO RECORD!
• How are your Smart Guides configured?
Some are Smart Series Guides - specifying Channel and New
Others Specify - Title (contains Name), Channel and New -
OR just - Title (contains Name), New.
None of which even contain a SINGLE WORD of the infomercial title in them. Which in this last case was "News: Breaking Info of Prostate Health". lol
I'll go through each Smart Guide and try to add in tighter search guidelines where I can - maybe this will help.
