Issues with Contour guide:
I "upgraded" to a Cisco 2 tuner dvr with the Contour guide this summer because of it's larger harddrive. I'm trying to setup my fall series recording schedule. With my old DCR6416, when three or more series were scheduled for the same time the dvr would schedule 2 and tell me, in the program guide and scheduled recordings screens, which ones were not being recorded. This allows me to manually change the priorities and schedule the 2 I wanted. Now, with the Contour guide, I don't get any indication of what isn't scheduled. It shows the 2 scheduled recordings but nothing about the ones it can't schedule. A call to Cox support told me they would show up in "missed recordings" but only after the fact, I've already missed it, what good is that????? Anyone know a workaround? Is there a way to run to old guide on the Cisco dvr? Looks to me like a step backwards ... another time where a feature I used was taken away via a so call "update".
Maybe I'm doing something wrong but the recommendations function of the Contour guide are useless. I don't speak Spanish, never watch Spanish programming, but the guide recommends Spanish language programming for me. Most other recommendations are far from my interests too. Is there anything you have to do to get recommendations more meaningful??
