I'm having a very strange issue with my DVR. I have been unable to record any shows or use series recordings for the last few days. When I looked in the recording history, the last 3 days of recordings have an error message that says
"This program did not record because a conflicting On Demand program was started during this time".
I don't know why this started happening. I didn't modify any of my recording settings before this started, or change any channel subscriptions. Has anyone dealt with this issue before, or have any ideas of things I can try? It's not like I missed any life-changing shows, but I hate paying for something that I can't actually use.
"this program did not record because a conflicting on demand program was started during this time" is the message I get when the dvr fails to record whether it is scheduled or an attempt to record manually.
The auto fix did not work and rebooting worked for about a day and then the dvr stopped recording again with the same message.
Tried the fixes and I'm still having the same issue. I'm trying to get a hold of Verizon directly but with my work hours it's difficult. I also can't record programs individually, for example if I just find a show and hit the record button, the same error message is put on when I check recording history, at times when absolutely nothing else is scheduled.
I've had the exact same problems since switching recently to Fios. Cannot record anything at all, always the conflict with the on demand msg. However, if I reboot, then I'm able to record a show at that moment. But once I schedule a show, it won't record it and I'll get the error msg. Additionally, from then on, nothing will record - either scheduled or current. I called Verizon who said it was a bad dvr and they sent me a new one. SAME exact conflict problem with the new one. I don't think they know how to fix it. Please post if you're able yo resolve. Thnx.
