American idol comes on TWCSC channels 7 and 820.
From this point on....
TP= (Technical Problem) "the issue that you have been discussing on this forum regarding FOX and DVRs stopping and starting"
NOT LIVE= not watching in real time mode. Means I have pressed pause, rewind, slow motion and not up to live transmission in time line.
I set the DVR to record American Idol on either Channel 7 or Channel 820 it doesn't matter which. If I am gone or am watching TV in real time mode (no rewinding, pausing, slow motion), American Idol records in multiple sets on 820 or 1 set on channel 7, but I get it all.
However, If I am watching 820, NOT LIVE and the TP happens, The recording stops and DVR functions stop working. I have to erase what it has recorded so far before it will start recording again or DVR functions are restored.
This seems to only happen if I am recording American Idol on channel 7 or 820 while watching 820 NOT LIVE. If I am recording on another channel, the recording process does not seem to be affected by what goes on on channel 820.
I have already had the DVR replaced. The explorer 8000HD would not even record 820 in multiple sets. At least the 8300HD does start recording again if I am watching live or not at home.
I hope this is clearer for you.
