I have been having an issue recording first run shows of series that are programmed on my dvr. for example i'll check my dvr in the morning and see a show is scheduled to record at 8pm and when i go to watch it later that night it's like the dvr forgot to record it. is there anyway to fix this? i've tried resetting the box and it fixes itself for a few days and then it happens again.
This is a known issue.
Only way to correct a seires once it has that problem is to delete and re-add or selct modify series. Make no changes and hit save.
Verizon has stated they know of the problem but as of yet do not have a date to deploy a fix.
I've had the same problem for weeks. At first they told me it was impossible and replaced the box. Just today they admitted it was an issue and would deploy a solution, but when I asked when I was told that was beyond the scope of their service and they closed my ticket. Awful service and in my opinion saying to just keep resetting the series recordings is a joke. So,frustrated. Wondering if their poor service is due to the strike or if they are always this unhelpful and uncaring.
Another way to get them back in the "scheduled" list is to force a reboot of the Media Server STB. "Main Menu -> Customer Support -> Top Support Tools -> Reboot STB". After reboot, the box apparently rescans the guide and will re-discover the missing scheduled recordings.
Not an idea solution, having a fix would be that, but at least you don't have to fiddle with each and every series affected, just force reboot the box. This has worked for me several times. If fact, I've gotten into the habit of rebooting the box before going to bed.
