For those who don't know - by "reset", it's meant that you delete the series based recording (SBR), then set it up again from the EPG (guide). If it won't set up again, reboot and try again.

And best to wait a few hours before trying this, as mentioned the EPG is being updated.

Great news, thanks for listening MC.

Fast fact in relation to the above: While the pilot episode on the original US broadcast was indeed 90 mins, the pilot for the later international release included additional scenes and came in at over 110 mins

Once people have caught up/got into Twin Peaks, I still hope you'll consider showing the 1992 movie (Fire Walk With Me). In 2014 Lynch released an extra 90 mins of footage from this movie called "The Missing Bits", which included many scenes featuring favourite old characters which had been left on the cutting room floor, one of the complaints fans had about the movie. The likes of David Bowie and Chris Isaak, along with a young Kiefer Sutherland, also appear in the movie and it makes an interesting companion/prequel to the series despite the much darker tone which was unpopular with a lot of fans at the time.

This is an interesting article on the controversy over the movie, and how it is viewed much more favourably now, but includes spoilers from the series so don't read it if you haven't watched that yet:

Original Twin Peaks season 1 and 2 have both expired on Catch Up Plus and DStv Now way before the expiry dates initially indicated and while I recorded the episodes on M-Net Binge, because of the issues back then, Season 2 Episodes 8 and 9 were skipped. Knowing I had ample time to watch because the series was available on CU+ and DStv Now, and I could catch those missing episodes there, I didn't stress about it. Suddenly they're gone.

Actually, after just having checked again, all but S2E2 are gone from DStv Now. For some reason S2E2 is the only episode available to watch and download.

What is the reason they disappeared so long before they were supposed to? Or was this a mistake, and they will be back?

The thread below (last page) explains why it has been removed from CU+ but, according to the thread, it should still be on DSTV Now:

Thanks Krugie, missed that thread, but yes, like Paddington said too, only S2E2 is available on DStv Now. Hopefully the rest return there...

One of you could post clarity in that thread that most episodes are missing from DStv Now as well, then the info will get straight back to those involved.

EDIT: Sorry @WDP1, just saw that you already did that...
