When a timer is skipped, the reason is stated on the Daily Schedule.
To access your Daily Schedule:
- Press PVR on your remote control twice.
- Scroll to the crossed out items on your daily schedule to learn why a particular timer may have been skipped.
The list of reasons can be seen below.
- Priority - This timer had a lower priority than other events being recorded at the time. Learn more about setting priorities
- Super Sized Episode – These are episodes that are a minute or two longer than regular episodes, causing them to fall into the next time slot and interrupt any timers set for that time slot. For example a super sized episode of Grey’s Anatomy airing from 9 p.m. until 10:01 p.m. would cause a timer set to record CSI at 10 p.m. to be skipped because it has lower priority than Grey’s Anatomy for the same time slot.
- User - A user chose to skip that timer.
- Duplicate event - There is already another timer set to record that program.
- Event exists in PVR - The program was already recorded and can be found in the My Recordings list.
- Not a new episode - Used for New Episode timers. Currently, a New Episode is one that has the current year listed in the Program Guide info.
- Incorrect event - For Weekly, Daily and Monday-Friday timers. If the Program Guide has a different event listed, the timer will be skipped. For example, if a timer is set to record a show daily but the show airs only Monday to Friday, the timer will be skipped on weekends.
- Signal – If a timer is set to record while the receiver was unable to acquire a satellite signal, the event will be skipped.
To avoid this problem, search for an alternate time for the second program
