Weird missed recording problem: Roamio AND Elite

    Had a weird recording glitch last night, looking to see if anyone has any clues on this. Short version: One show on my Roamio Pro and two shows on my Elite did not record due to "video signal was unavailable". But it was available. And I do not think this is the 5/6 tuner problem.

    I have a Pro that is 2-3 weeks old, and works like a charm, no problems. And I have recorded six tuners at once, so no reason to think the missing 5/6 tuner cablecard is the issue. I also have an Elite, 2-3 years old, also works like a charm.

    Last night I had 5 CBS shows set to record back to back. On both TiVos. No padding, no overlap (I don't pad CBS generally). At the same time, I had other tuners recording other shows (ABC, NBC, etc). Some with padding, some not, but I am anal about my recordings, and always check to make sure there are no conflicts.

    On the new Pro, BBT1(7:00), BBT2(7:30) and Crazy Ones(8:00) all record. 2.5Men (8:30) does not, "no video signal available". Elementary (9:00) also recorded. I realized about 9:15 that 2.5Men did not record, started flipping thru the 6 tuners, and actually found the last few minutes of it on one tuner. So it clearly was available.

    On the Elite, the two BBT recorded, but both MJF (NBC) and 2.5Men(CBS) did not. Same reason. Elementary did record.

    Any clues? Had it been just one TiVo, I would blame it on a glitch. But to have two different TiVos miss the same program, that was clearly available, is a mystery. And remember, while the Pro is new, the Elite is a veteran, with nary a glitch in years, and a cablecard that I know has no issues.

    Thanks in advance:confused:

    Exact same show? That would be too weird of a coincidence.

    I'll check my SNR, but I have *never* had a problem with it, or like this.

    Just thought of something... I have an older S3 still working, that records from my antenna. I'll see what it did.

    I had the same issue last night...seems like it may be a TiVo issue if it's happening with multiple people...

    Edit: well kind of the same...
    Have the new and returning collections recording...the following shows did not record: Greys Anatomy @ 9pm, Glee @ 9pm, Michael j fox show @ 9:01, Crazy Ones @ 9:01

    basically nothing at 9 recorded due to "no signal" yet at 9:30 the second episode of Michael j fox was recorded without issue.

    Ok, this is beyond weird. Clearly there are forces at work here I don't understand.:D

    BTW, my S3 on an antenna recorded it perfectly.
