Default WARNING: Check your SD PVR Schedules

In the early hours of this morning MC seems to have added another transponder to the mix. There are now 20 transponders that the decoder needs to scan when connecting?

Last time I checked, there were still 19 ------- ( quite a while ago)

Seems this was added in January sometime so cannot explain why decoder was scanning another new transponder --?

The auto reboot/rescan MC seems to have triggered did not work in my case, and this morning just about nothing was correct on both decoders.(SD PVR and UEC HDPVR)

So strongly suggest you check your TBR and EBR settings and if you find anything wrong, reboot the SD PVR again. Then make sure that EPG is available, and then work through the schedule of recordings one by one.

I found:

(1) The wrong channel was set to record.
(2) the date on some recordings changed to MAY, but the correct date
(3) The date on some recordings changed to may, and a completely wrong date as well,
(4) Some settings for "weekly" were now "weekdays"

Think this might be related.

I set an autotune on Thursday for Friday. Autotune did not happen. Friday night I tried to delete it a number of times very unsuccessfully. The info said something like: autotune would remain in effect till 25 April looking for programme to autotune to. Having read this thread earlier in the day, I did a rebbot. It cleared the old autotune and all new autotunes over the weekend worked fine.

No issues with recordings.

As I said in my original post on Friday, I found all sorts of things wrong including the dates.

Yes I had to go and change every single setting one by one individually to get the dates, the type of recording and the channel correct.

The series had to be changed on the series list.

BUT then I don't know what I am talking about so please ignore me ..... I am just rambling

As I'm aware that some people don't regularly read the Channels section, here's a new heads-up: Some channel changes - ED, Ignition, Rhema

Wonder if that is not what happened last night on the SD PVR -- there was a reboot, and an extensive EPG update.
Damm, I should have checked that NCIS recording !
