Advertisements ** Bumped up on 02/20//2007 - problem seems to be cropping up again for DirecTV receivers with TiVo DVR Service. ** Many DirecTV DVRs with TiVo service have had problems recording from Season Passes, WishLists, and even One-Time Recordings (a recording set by selecting a title). These problems first started being reported around 12/18/2006 12/01/2006. I am posting this here to provide a heads-up that there are known problems and there are a couple of fixes you can try that may prevent you from missing your recordings. Please take all other discussion about these problems to the appropriate DirecTV forums or the threads listed below. Many threads have been started about this, with primary symptoms being those shown below: Your To Do List will be completely empty even though the guide shows the program meets all of your recording criteria. Wish Lists do not return matches, but if you search by name or look in the guide, you will find your program. Your To Do List will indicate a program is scheduled to record, but later you will find out it did not, and recording history shows "Someone in your household modified the season pass", when no one had. Your To Do List history is full of "Program will not record" entries, reporting "someone in your household modified ..." Your System Information page shows that indexing happened more than 36 hours ago. Some fixes to try: Restart your receiver and wait about an hour for indexing to occur. Force TiVo to make a service call (phone home) and wait about an hour for indexing to occur. The forced re-indexing seems to repopulate the To Do lists and return full functionality of Season Passes and WishLists, but you will have to check your TiVo To Do list every day (and even throughout the day) to ensure your To Do list is set properly. To guarantee a program records, you can use TiVo like a VCR and do a manual Record-By-Time-and-Channel (ex: Record Channel 7 from 9 PM to 10 PM). So far, no one has reported that this has failed to work, but remember that this solution will not help if your program is moved to a different night or time slot. Here are some threads discussing these problems: Not recording -- "Someone modified the season pass?!?!" No guide data! Search, Season passes and Wishlists cease to function What DTV "admits" to knowing All season passes not recording -- WTF ? If anyone has suggestions, I will gladly update this list with new "symptoms", "fixes" and links to discussions threads.
