We have the original Contour setup (not Contour 2) and have been VERY pleased with our DVR. We set recording times for shows we like; and there's no trouble.Lately...quite a few channels won't let us record, pause, fast-forward...nothing. Channels that we know have this problem are:Smithsonian ChannelFootnetworkHGTVCan anyone explain why this is so? We've done all the "usual fixes" that the phone tech's recommend...nothing.
No messages of any kind; it was almost by accident. We noticed shows weren't recording so over the last four days, we attempted to record shows: nothing. Even while we were watching the show, we'd select "record" and it wouldn't do anything.On other channels...no problem.
This happened to us about 6 months ago. nothing seemed to record, BUT if I programed something new it worked. I wrote down and then deleted everything on the series manager. I think it can holds so much then has a nervous breakdown. Has been fine for recording, I am here for another issue but noticed your post.
