Have unplugged everything , let the pvr sit, then plugged it all in again to try again. Checked cables as well. It will show a red dot that its recording either manuel selected show or a seris recording. I look and its not there. If im on the channel i want to record, it will record that show but i cant watch any onther channels while im doing so, those channels say s0a00, and I only have 1 recording at a time. Opposite is it says I'm recording while watching other channels but when I go to see its not there.
