Thank you for the response. I agree if the programming guide gets updated prior to recording the scheduled recording “should” be updated, but it doesn’t work that way. It updates at some later time. I have an example on my current schedule for Jan 22. It picked up a program on my master schedule that originally was not identified as “New” (I record “New” shows). This morning the schedule shows the show is a repeat, but the DVR schedule has not updated; it still shows the “non-New” episode from the prior day.
It appears most necessary to set a manual recording from the guide, for any events that are not marked new in advance. You can check the event's status (New or repeat) against the information on this site: www.cox.com/.../tv-listings.cox Please be sure to select your location and the date in question. There is not another course of action we can recommend at this time.
