In addition to the Discovery bug, (experienced exactly as described by most) I've had American Idol not record, despite checking the scheduled recordings list just prior to the show airing, it flat did not record. I saw the record light come on, but found out after a half an hour of letting Survivor buffer up that it did not record, two weeks in a row.
Additionally, our conflicts are not sorting themselves right. Firstly, as I try to digest whether to choose A B or C, (do nothing) maybe 30 seconds or so, the manager disappears and decided for me to "do nothing" I assume and the conflict disappears. leaving me wondering what actually will record.
Not a big deal, as we always set network shows at the highest priority, because the "cable" channels almost always re-air new programming within a few hours, when there are no conflicts. The DVR finds the next recording, marked as "New" and the show is set to record then. Has almost always worked great, as designed.
However, as of the last few weeks, most of the time, the DVR does not pick up the next airing of the show, despite being marked "New" and is definitely on the guide airing later that night, forcing us to manually find and record it.
These issues, along with a growing lag for almost all remote button pushes, forced us to swap the SA 8300HDC we had just replaced six months prior with a Samsung, (none in stock, got a Cisco 8640) in spite of the headache of resetting our series manager AGAIN. (they really need to add cloud storage of series manager in MyServices online)
In light of the forthcoming (rumored) 16x9 black menus that might not be available on the 8300 series, this may not have been in vain, although it sounds like the DVR isn't the issue.
TL;DR Has anyone else had problems with conflicts not automatically recording the next instance of a "new" episode?
