    our scheduling information ran out so I manually recorded my show. In the now playing list of recordings it shows that my show actually recorded for the hour but when I click on play a screen comes up that says

    " ERROR PLAYING A RECORDING
    the Tivo DVR was not able to record this program because there was no video signal on the channel. You may have been trying to record on a channel that you don't receive."

    can anyone help or advise me on how to get the show to play?

    thanks in advance

    Stock TiVo or recently upgraded? The show is not there so you are not going to get it to play regardless of what now playing list shows.

    I'd try a reboot/restart. Many weird situations can be fixed this way. And, this may be one where the TiVo is reporting the problem because it didn't really know why it did/didn't record.

    I just got this error message tonight. I know we get that channel, so I don't understand how I am getting this message... It recorded for 2 1/2 hours.

    Connect the phone line - I think the TiVo wont let you record because it believes you need your subscription.

    I have a neighbor whose husband refuses to run a phone line to his TiVo - about once a week, or longer, he runs a phone line to the TiVo to get his connection - His wife is constantly bugging us to have me cut a VCR tape for her when the program guide runs out - her manual recordings stop too.
