Contour 2 spontaneously starts recording
I swapped out my ailing Motorola DVR device for a Contour 2 + satellite unit a few weeks ago and am generally happy with it but more than once the Contour unit has decided to spontaneously start recording programs. It's recording them on channels I would ordinarily never watch. When this happens, I go to the Saved menu, cancel the recording in progress and the future recordings. All is fine for a few days and then it decides to start recording something again. Is this a known issue? I tried recording a program just to see what was involved and it requires at least a few on-screen acknowledgements so I know this isn't happening because I accidentally pressed the record button.
- Go to the scheduled screen, hit the down button and then up and to the right until Series Priority is highlighted, click OK. This should bring up a list of all scheduled series recordings. Do you see anything under here that you or the other person in your home has not scheduled? If so, this would be where the recordings are coming from. It may be a box that a different customer may have used previously and the settings were not wiped clean before we put the box back into our inventory. If that is the case, you can search for the titles that arent yours and then cancel those recordings so that they no longer record. Brian Cox Support Forum Moderator
