Phantom recordings fix that doesn't require factory reset?

451 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  boekjar
Just noticed this post at Planet Replay that claims you can fix the phantom recording problem by just clearing the channel guide, rather than doing a factory reset.

Background: phantom recordings occur when a ReplayTV has encountered a problem or an abnormal reboot. There may be no recordings showing in the Replay Guide, but when you go to schedule one you had previously set up, you get a "new recording conflicts with existing recording" error message.

The common way to clear up the problem has been to perform a factory reset. However, the post at Planet Replay says you can fix the problem by clearing the channel guide and a factory reset is not required.

I can't confirm the suggested fix will work or not, however the poster's signature says "ReplayTV Technical Support".

That doesn't seem to work for the case where DVArchive reports that something will record, but the ReplayTV will not actually record.

I've tried it.
What I posted has nothing to do with DVArchive.
Right. There are at least two different kinds of "Phantom Recordings", so I was hopeful when I read your subject line... But then I found out that you were talking about the OTHER kind of Phantom Recordings. *sigh*

I still have not found a solution to the Phantom Recordings reported by DVArchive that don't actually record. (Haven't gotten to the point of Factory Resetting yet.)
