Unable to record, a future scheduled recordings have disappeared

None of my previously scheduled recordings appear in the scheduled area.  The guide indicates a program  will be recorded but the program does not show up under scheduled.  The only shows that appear in the scheduled area are ones I previously cancelled. If I try to change the cancel back to record I receive.a message telling me you Have problems and to try later. Well I have tried several times over the past 4 hours, no change. I have rebooted and reset the contour 2 box. No help

      Same here just red circle and slash. Have rebooted. Have deleted all recorded shows. So plenty of space. Has not recorded a show since 11/03/20. Refresh did not work. Any suggestions?

        Just solved by going to my Cox account and had them refresh my TV box remotely. All scheduled shows are now in the scheduling.

      @Amk, Are you still experiencing issues with the dvr service? If so, are you able to set a manual recording of something currently playing? -Allan, Cox Support Forums Moderator.
  • This sounds like it may be related to an issue that was found earlier. There is a ticket still open and being monitored but we believe that it should let you set recordings now.

    I cannot record anything, it shows as "conflict", but there is no conflict. Tech support was unhelpul, apparently it's been going on for 7-10 days. Why are we paying these guys??? I've rebooted, unplugged, nothing. They seem in no hurry to resolve, and they are unrepentant. Their advice..."reboot every two hours". Are they for real??
