I have lots of programs set up to record automatically on the Contour DVR. All was well until a couple of weeks ago when one program mysteriously stopped recording (The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson on Antenna TV). I have deleted the program from the series and added it. When this happens the programs shows up in Scheduled but then disappear soon thereafter. Rebooted a number of times, no change.
Not sure if this is happening to other programs.
Any help appreciated.
Is your receiver a Contour 1 or Contour 2?
No voice control
Understand I'm in full experimenting mode now... but you might try adjusting series priorities for programs around the "Johnny Carson" program to see if that does anything. But, the results are unpredictable. It could help, do nothing, or make things worse. It's up to you.
I will. I have found odd things before. i do appreciate your help.
I made sure every instance of anything relating to Carson was deleted and then rebooted the system again. I then played with the priorities and it let me select it and moved it to number one in priorities. That is progress. i will wait and see if it works later. Also, is there a upper limit of series you can have set at any one time?
It sounds like you're good to go. As far as I know, there isn't a defined limit on the number of series that can be setup. The developer may have assumed no one will ever have more than 99 though, because the "Modify Series Priority" box is only wide enough for two digits. But, a 100+ number will display into the yellow description area.
And it worked. Thank you.
