    We saw TiVo recording it last night, then checked My Shows this morning and.. nothing - even though our other shows, Castle and Hawaii Five-0, were there. And it's not like we can't get Fox 11. Fringe came in fine last Friday (we're strictly OTA).

    If it was recording and doesn't show up in the My Shows, that means there was no signal.

    Check the recording history and see what that says about it. I haven't tried to watch it yet, but it shows in my play list (I am also strictly OTA on my TiVo Premier).

    Mine is OK. I have had things look like they were recording and there was no signal. Did you see any of it when it was playing? If you did, there is something else wrong.

    The Terra Nova premiere is being rebroadcast sometime this weekend. I don't remember when so you'll have to search for it.

    My setup:
    • Cable
    • Dual CableCards
    • Tuning Adapter for SDV channels
    A lot of times (especially on SDV channels) when my Tivo S4 tunes into a channel it can take more than a second or two for the tuning to happen. When it takes this long for the channel to tune in the Tivo doesn't record anything :(.
    The channel does work (if I press live TV) but the recording doesn't happen, and if I play the recording from the Now Playing List I just get a black screen stuck at 00:00:00.

    Why this might be relevant to you
    Since you're OTA, maybe your digital adapter is malfunctioning, and you're getting something similar to my problem.

    Edit: AMC HD is an SDV channel where I live. Thank god 'Breaking Bad' has re-airings, it's the hottest thing on TV at the moment and getting blank recordings makes me angry!!!!!!
    I have found changing the tuner to the channel before the scheduled recording, if possible, is a good work around.

    Thanks, all.

    Turned out to be operator error... somehow I set the recording to be on channel 11-2 instead of of 11-1. D'OH! :eek:

    If the cable company was putting out a weak signal that can happen but operator error is the easiest error to fix so that was good. :)

    The ratings weren't so hot. You may want to hold off on watching. We all know FOX is trigger happy.

    After all the money they pumped into this, no way are Fox canceling this quick. Heck, they even renewed Fringe.
