    What happens when you try to record, and are you trying to schedule a recording or record immediately?

    I just now did that and it worked. Thanks

    Now I just can't record 2 shows in a row on the same channel, like I use to.

    What kind of error messages is the TiVo throwing at you when you try?

    It doesnÂ’t say any messages. It just won't record that way.

    If your recording settings build in padding, then the overlapping times will cause your problems. There are ways to check why a show didn't record -- it varies depending on whether you have sd or hd menus.

    That is a padding bug in the latest Tivo software. ( there are threads on this maybe in roamio area)

    If you remove the padding it should work.

    Might be a problem with the HD series 3 TiVo too. At 9:58pm I tried to set up the TiVo to record a program at 10pm. At that time I was recording two shows. The TiVo came back and said that both tuners were recording to I would have to stop recording to record the show at 10pm.
    What I did is just stop the recording one tuner, as the show was done, but I imagine if I went into 'find programs' and then 'to do list' and found the programs being recorded, then I could shorten the shows so the TiVo wouldn't think that the new recording was overlapping with them. First time I have had the problem. I mostly have Premiers and Series 2s and never had a problem like that.

    Not sure what you mean by "recording settings build in padding..."

    In your recording options. By default, there should be NO padding.
