And here we go again! Man Frustrated

MC did it again!  Messed with the EPG, which messed up ALL TBR settings! Fiddled with the date settings. Decoders now are set to record only again in 2020!

 

Can't you leave things alone!

Long gone problem. I had to redo ALL TBR settings to get them to work again. Old recordings are playing fine. 

It was new scheduled TBRs that failed.

Hi @GeoffD

 

Are the recordings themselves not playing, or it is not recording what you recorded at the time you requested the recording?

Of course I am still using the 4P decoders.

Hi @GeoffD

Please confirm if you are still using the HD PVR 4P decoders.

A new Issue with older decoders: TBR settings are now screwed up and have to be deleted and redone

Just when you think there is nothing else MC can possibly find to break, they do!.

On the older decoders, we had Time-Based Recordings (TBRs). These were really simple settings. All that had to be set was the channel and the times, nothing more nothing less. the decoder would then record whatever was in that timeslot regardless.

Simple, reliable and supposedly infallible. that is of course before the MC sw guys go and fiddle with things.

Now, since last weeks messing around, ALL my longstanding TBRs are now not working anymore!

Way to go MC, screw up everything. It is guaranteed to make sure your long-standing old timer customers will continue to support you!
