I have been using Tata Sky Plus (non HD) for 3 years without any problem. For the past two days, programs I used to record daily are not getting recorded. But if I press REC button, the current program gets recorded.Anyone facing the problem?Thanking you,Jose.

There are some goof ups on their side for series recordings. Series are not being identified properly, and even if they do, they don't show the recording icon though they get recorded. Looks like a buggy software update to me.

Thanks for the reply.The problem I face is not related to Series Recording. Only current programs could be recorded. If I set a program to get recorded a few hours later, it does not get recorded. This is the first time such a problem has occurred in the 3 years of my Tata Sky Plus usage.

I suppose that the problem is due to the STB hanging (PC terminology). It does not do anything, including recording. Restart is the only option (same as PCs). I've noticed the problem of a program not recording only when the STB hangs, once or twice in the last 2-3 years, fortunately.

Thanks for the reply Aju. I think the problem may not be with the STB. We are in two different locations; on the same day, we get the same problem.Jose.

Yesterday when i went home....the scheduled recording events didnot get recorded ...in fact i was surprised to see that i my schedule for WWE Raw program between 4 PM to 7 PM was not getting recorded and when looked onto the channel banner R thing was not reflecting then i pressed the R button it started to get record...then i did master reset hope to solve the problem and then put the STB on stand by mode...after 30 mins when i switched the TV again blue blank screen occurred...then i switched off and on the main STB power.... then the programs started to get record which was scheduled for that point of time...later yesterday night i didnt turn my off the STb to standy mode...in the morning when i got up...the STB was on stand by mode ....it could have happened because of my settings on Auto Stand By after 90 mins...later i switched the TV and STB ....blue blank screen was not reflecting and all the programs which was scheduled for recording got recorded properly..........
