Upon further investigation, that CSI: NY was airing on TNT and its episode name was... wait for it... wait for it... "Justified". So, the X1 took my season pass of "Justified" and attached itself to an episode of CSI: NY named "Justified". What the HECK?
I have another strange issue to relate - last night we set up to record "Dancing with the Stars" @ 8, the 11 PM local news and the Letterman show @11:35 - all on the same channel. All three recordings were set at the same time in the same way. No problem with "DWTS" - the red recording light came on at 8 and the show recorded properly.
At 11 there was no recording light nor was there one at 11:35 and no listing for either the news or Letterman in the list of "Recordings." We cursed a bit at the machine and went to bed.
Shazaam - this morning both the 11 PM news and Letterman are sitting in my list of recordings. Where were these recordings last night when I was looking for them?
There are many things to like about the X1 system when it works properly but the most aggravating thing about it is the uncertainty that what you want to happen will happen. It just requires too much freakin' babysitting.
PS - I noticed you posted the same story on the Comcast forum.
