I also have had scheduled recordings not record after getting the software patch early Tuesday morning.
The shows were OutFront on CNN at 6 pm and Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN at 11:58 pm.
The shows are set to record using the manual recording method Monday - Friday. With OutFront at 6 pm there is no other scheduled recording at that time. OutFront recorded Tuesday, but on Wednesday, OutFront didn't record and it wasn't in the My Recordings list, but it was still in the Scheduled Recordings list even though the scheduled time to record had already passed. If I pressed select, instead of getting the recording summary nothing would happen. If I went to future scheduled recordings and pressed select, nothing would happen. I switched to the grid and selected the recording, it brought up the page that allows you to set or cancel a recording, set or cancel a reminder, etc. I pressed the red button to set or cancel the recording. No matter what I did, I couldn't remove the series recording indication in the grid. I had to reboot the DVR so I could remove the series recording and reschedule the recording. OutFront recorded on Thursday, but didn't record on Friday and if I go to future scheduled recording and press select nothing happens.
Note 1: I am using the manual recording method because the DVR will record the same episode later that night or early the next day even though the NEW and REPEAT flags are set correctly. These extra recordings cause conflicts with other scheduled recordings.
Note 2: The reason I record Anderson Copper 360 at 11:58 pm instead of 12:00 am is there is no option to record Tuesday - Saturday and I tried to use 11:59 pm but the DVR would not schedule a recording at that time.
Were the shows that didn't record in the My Recordings list?
Note: Before the software patch, all the scheduled recordings would show up in the My Recordings list with a few truncated if I didn't use a workaround.
Are you seeing the same issues with entries in the Scheduled Recording list not bringing up the recording summary for shows that did not record and not being able to remove the series recording indicator in the grid for future episodes of the shows that did not record.
