Anyone else having problems with their DVR?
I have been trying to record a series (College Football Live, etc) and nothing gets recorded. Please reply if you are having the same problems or a solutions.
Also having problems changing the channel. I'm constantly having the hit the up or down channel button twice before it changes the channel.
I have been trying to tape back to back episodes of House of Payne and there is a problem with the timing of each episode. The programs do not start and end at exactly the same time. I end up with 1 - 2 minutes of the end of each episode missing. How frustrating! I tried to add 5 minutes to the end of each but, the DVR will then skip the next episode and tape the next one. For example: I'll get the 8 - 8:30 episode, skip the 8:30 - 9 episode, and then get the 9 - 9:30 episode.
I can not figure out what to do.
If you don't have HD capability, you might want to check if the show you're recording is the HD channel broadcast. I was having a problem with the DVR saying it was recording a show, but when I tried to view it, all I got was a grey screen. With further checking, I found that for some reason, when I set up the series record, it picked the HD channel instead of the standard. Modified the channel # and solved the problem.
Don't know if that's what's happening to you, but it's worth a check.
I'm a new FIOS HDTV subscriber and also have experienced slow response froim the remote. You must often enter 2 or 3 times to a frozen sceeen then it catches up with 2/3 instant screen changrs. Also, as a former Cablevision customer, I'm not happy with the functionality of the Guide and Search. From guide or search you are unable to sert a "reminder". You need this function despite the fact that you have a DVR. Also, from the Search function you can only record to DVR future programming. You can't select that channel for viewing from the Search function even if the programming will begin in 5 minutes. You also can''t see programming that may have begun 5 minutes ago as this programming is listed - maybe I'm OK with joining a show 5 minutes late. You can only perform these functions from the guide, which has no sort capability so choosing from your favorite categoies or topics is impossible from the Guide.
Am I tilting at windmills here or do you others agree with these observations?
