    Last night I tried to set manual recordings for CBS on my Elite, which recently received the latest software update. The actual time was 7:45 PM. I tried to set the first recording for 8:30 PM to 9:30 PM. I received an error message saying the time for the requested recording had already passed. Clearly it hadn't. I tried a number of times and each time had the same result. I am certain all of the time "settings" (including "AM/PM") were correct (in fact, on the right side of the screen it showed the correct name of the program I wanted to record). Any thoughts? Thanks.

    Probably a problem with the end of Daylight Saving

    Just now, at 8:30 am, I tried to set one up starting at 10 am. It warned me that the 9 am recording had already started and asked if I still wanted to record. I selected "yes", but the recording did not start and shows in the To Do List as 10 am.



    Definitely a problem if you want to set one up for something that has actually already started

    Yeah, I thought of that - but the Tivo does indicate the correct time.

    Yep, manual recordings seem to be broken. False errors if they're happening soon, or they might schedule for the wrong day if it's for a future recording.

    It's just the one-off recordings. M-F scheduled recordings seem to work OK.

    After playing with it a bit, the Stop time has to be 2+ hours ahead of current time or you get the "has already ended" message

    I set up some manual recordings last week during the hurricane. Those were scheduled after the start time and I didn't have an issue with it. But it was also before DST ended.

    I got the same message trying to set up a manual recording for 8:00-8:30 at about 8:05 last night. So I decided to try 9:00-9:30, and it told me that one ended too.

    I think a programmer at TiVo thought it was "fall forward, spring back"
