    I saw some odd behavior in the back-to-back overlapping recordings. I have a wish list for post-season baseball. It's padded 3 hours on the end. With most of the games on TBS right now, this leads to a lot of back-to-back recordings.

    Today, the first game was 12-3 (padded until 6) and the second game is 3-6:30 (padded to 9:30) At 3:30, I turned on the tv and went to live to check the score. I saw only one game currently being recorded (still recording the padding of the first game) - there was no entry in the NPL for the second game. I stopped the first recording (since the game was over!) and selected "stop and delete" About 10 seconds later, the second recording started - but not from 3:00, it started from the current time.

    I know I'm not explaining well - and I did get the recording I wanted, but there are definitely problems in the back-to-back area. I just wanted to supply another data point.

    Last night, I had a season pass for The Big Bang Theory scheduled to record. When i went to watch it, it wasnt in my list. I checked my history and it just said "not recorded" with no other information. Last week, it recorded without issue. It is the only program in my history with only the "not recorded" as its description.

    So tonight my tivo failed to record Halloween Wars "Zombie Prom" on the Food Network. Here's what's interesting:

    - Show was scheduled to record from 9:00-10:00p with 2 minutes of padding.

    - History shows not available with No Longer in a guide shown.

    - This is not a season pass. This was a single recording set about a week ago.

    - I did have a show before it on the Food Network being recorded. I have a season pass for "Chopped" and it was recording an episode from 8:00-9:00 with 2 minutes padding.

    - The show was scheduled to record at 9:00p tonight. Currently the guide shows the show, AND it's only 9:25p as I write this and one of my tuners was on Food Network (from the previous recording) and I see the show in the buffer.

    - Only other recording at this time is Homeland at 9:00p and The Good Wife at 9:30.

    I think this definitely has something to do with back to back shows. The No longer in guide is a bogus error message.

    They need to fix this. I can't keep going into History to check what I missed because the Tivo can't do what it's supposed to.

    Oh, and clearly repeating guided setup had no effect.

    EDIT: I have sent an email off to Margaret with my information from this evening.

    I confirmed the Not Available messages are related to Not in Guide.

    Another failure with Real Housewives :rolleyes: At least this time it wasn't Blacklist which has always failed to record with this message.

    I experienced an issue last night that seems similar to this, but it's not exactly the same.

    I have both The Daily Show and Colbert set with 4 mins of overlap since getting my Roamio. Right after changing the overlap setting, I had problems with new episodes (listed NEW in guide with the correct air date) even showing up in the To Do list. The season pass originated on a Premiere XL, and was copied from there to an XL4 via the SPM, and then from the XL4 to the Roamio using kmttg. So I deleted both and recreated them directly on the Roamio, including the overlap, and the new episodes began to populate and record fine. Last night I was watching The Daily Show on delay, started about 20 minutes behind live. When it was over, I deleted the recording before FF all the way to the end. When it went back to My Shows, I noticed Colbert was not listed. Brought up the info bar, and the only thing recording was a suggestion. There was a tuner that was still set on CC, so I changed to it and hit record - this was at about 11:45pm. The resulting recording was a 27 min partial recording that started at what appears to be the end of the padded Daily Show recording time. I had checked before 11pm, and both The Daily Show and Colbert were in the To Do list. Now, there's no entry at all in the history for Colbert. No tuning adaptor here, I'm on FiOS. Same thing, perhaps?

    I also noticed that I have macro blocking at the moment the overlap from the previous recording ends (exactly 3 minutes into the second recording every time).

    Both the "Missed Recording" issue and the "Video Glitch" issue related to back-to-back recordings should be fixed in the Roamio update that we plan to release at the end of this month. (Neither is included in the Roamio update we will release on 10/9.)

    If you can't wait that long, you are welcome to join the Beta program by following these steps:

    I have the Roamio Basic on FIOS in Hampton Roads Virginia, and I have "Not Recorded" - "No Longer In Guide" happen every week with a particular show.

    The show is The Mclaughlin Group which comes on every week at 7:30am on WHRO World Channel 460 on Saturdays. Every week I see it in the To Do list and every week it doesnt record and the history says "Not Recorded" - "No Longer In Guide".

    My OnePass settings are Recordings Only, New Episodes Only, All Channels, SD Only.

    My old FIOS DVR, which I will be returning this week, records the show every week without problem.

    Any ideas whats going on?
