I have two 4504 boxes feeding two TVs, fed from SA4200 cable boxes, with Cablevision IO service (I've upgraded one of the 4504s to 160mb). Channels from 100 down are analog, and above that I have bunches of HBO, STARZ, etc digital channels. The Channel Guide sees all those channels, and tuning to them is no issue.


For a few months I have had set up on one of the RPTVs several zones for recording shows generally, like "letterboxed", and "****". They work fine, but the RPTV has *never* recorded a show on any of the digital channels. It rarely records on one of the premium channels, either.


What's going on?

I think I recall an explanation of how the RTV prioritizes what it will record when several conflicting shows appear for any given theme-based recording: I think it selects the first relevent program FROM THE LOWEST NUMBERED CHANNEL IN THE GUIDE. This would explain why you seldom see something recorded from the premium channels found higher up in the guide.

If you have analog and digital versions of the same channel, and want to use the digital versions, go into Setup->Add/Delete Channels and delete all the duplicate analog channels.
