I have been hit with the dreaded missed recordings over the last year or so as a result of bad guide data/updates etc as well as empty wishlists. But just yesterday I got him with a double dose at the same time...missed recordings (because "someone in my household....") as well as empty wishlists. This happened on one of my 4 10-250's. I haven't had a chance to check the other three in my household but will do that tonight. The odd thing WRT to the missed recordings is: It only hit one of the 2 Conan recordings on my local NBC....and it hit the Leno recording last night. Looking ahead in my to do list, it was going to miss a few Leno's....and a few COnan's here and there....but NO OTHER Season Pass RECORDINGS were set to not record. The rest of my SP's on that 10-250 are non-local channel SP's...so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. In addition, all 4 of my 10-250's are exhibiting odd IR remote behavior. They are all in different rooms in the house (1 in the basement and 3 on the main level). By weird I mean...non-responsive button pushes, delayed button responses (i.e. I hit ffwd 3 times...and it only registers once or I'll hit the guide button ONCE...and it registers TWO hits---and the same thing goes for the info bar). I can't figure out what kind of interference could be affecting all 4 units on different levels in my house in different rooms in the house the EXACT same way. What a PITA....and just as an FYI I do have a new HR20...but I'm not enamored with it's functionality when I compare it to my 10-250's. Maybe it will grow on me...but I haven't gotten to that point in the 3 months I've had it so far.
