OK so here is my biggest bug complaint so far. Tivo not recording things that I tell it to record & worse yet it says it is recording, but doesn't! I've been suspecting the box of doing this for a little while now but caught it red-handed tonight.
I had one of my boxes set to record at least 8 things throughout the day today & recorded....2! Five of which were one-time recordings, none of them recorded. Three were season passes that were new shows, two of these recorded, one didn't. I caught it on the last show that was supposed to record, a new episode of a show on CBS. About halfway through the show I was going through the recorded shows list & it wasn't listed as started so I checked in the guide. It wasn't showing as currently recording so I pressed the 'record' button to see what would happen. It came back telling me something to the extent of the 'season pass' manager would take care of the recording for me....umm, no it didn't. The 'funny' thing about it is that later after the show doesn't record, it's not listed in the recorded history section on the box with any kind of reason for not recording, it just acts like it wasn't even supposed to record it & has no memory of it.
I've had problems in the past where the guide info is messed up in the box so it won't record for that reason. If it wanted to use that for part of the day today I might believe it, if it didn't happen sporadically through the day. It didn't record anything before 8pm tonight, then it did record from 8-9, then nothing after 9 again. All I can say is thank goodness for the writers strike or who knows how many shows I would have missed in the past month or so! The box was not recording anything else while my shows were supposed to be recording & Tivo suggestions have been turned off since day one.
So while the 5.1 sound issue is a bug, Tivo sounds not working correctly is a bug, guide data being delayed when changing channels is a bug, etc, etc. Not recording the shows a DVR is supposed to record is by far the biggest problem that I can imagine.
This Tivo guide has some really nice features that are not in the regular DVR software that I really like. But this whole thing of not recording stuff is not cool at all.
