My DVR recordings are suddenly completely invisible to the box in the other room.
Reboots of all DVRS (unplugging for 5 minutes) doesn't accomplish anything.
The "Auto-fix of Common DVR" problems option gives me a "Data Error. Please try again later." message.
Technical support says their systems are completely down and they can't even look up and verify accounts much less help me beyond giving general tips that I have already tried. They've offered to transfer me to billing to at least get a credit for my downtime.
Billing and billing supervisors insist that this is untrue and that there is absolutely no problem with technical support beyond transient nightly updates.
If I'm understanding you correctly, the issue you are facing is that while all of your STBs are functioning, and your DVR correctly shows your View Recordings list, this list does not display on your non-DVR STB. Though there could be a number of issues causing your problem, and a number of fixes that could be necessary, I'll list the easiest first.
With your non-DVR STB on, press the DVR button, wait for the menu to display, highlight Refresh Devices, press OK. This will refresh the recordings list. Go back to View Recordings and see if your recorded programs have re-appeared. If not, go to the next step.
In the same menu, highlight the Auto-fix MRDVR Issues option and press OK. Highlight Fix/Activate My MR-DVR Service, press OK, press Right Arrow. On the next screen, press Right Arrow again. This should reset all your boxes and bring your recordings back. If not, go to the next step.
Reboot your router.
If none of these solutions work, then you might be having an issue either with your service, your wiring, or your components.
