DirecTV isn't recording MSNBC's Rachel Maddow. Anyone else having this problem?

Also Deadline White House and The Beat with Ari Melber, which I've had it on auto record for a long time, now they won't.  The Last Word with O'Donnell and The 11th Hour with Williams are recording.  I've done everything I can think of with the buttons, canceled and reset, etc.  I've also tried to record later showings, which also don't.  

 

Some evenings it has seemed to be recording only to not be there if I try to watch later.  Other times they're not recorded at all.  Last night I once again manually instructed it to record Rachel Maddow, red light on, but program not recorded. 

 

I have not noticed this problem on any other network and only MSNBC's evening lineup.  Any thoughts on this before I try to explain it to tech support?

Yeah, I noticed that also. Trump and Russia don't want it to; but are one of them hacking into directv/ AT&T or is it an inside job. This started happening over a month ago. This would make it deliberate.

Is this happening on Directv's sister company DishTV? That would also be bad.

Who would want to record or even watch Rachel Maddow?

Perhaps Roger Ailes? After all, he declared her book "Drift" to be a "must read".

You never know about those dead conservatives.

yes! I’m having the same issue! It is politically balanced as Fox can’t be recorded either!

I am having same problem in Rosebud, Tx. The problem is politically balanced as Fox and Weather Channel can not be recorded either!

I am currently having the same issue, except in my case, it is happening with Morning Joe.  Also, when I initially turn on my television, after the three hour recording period, it immediately asks if I want to “delete this recording”. I always push “do not delete”, even though I have no idea which program it is referring to!

When I search for the recorded MJ, it shows that it recorded, but when I try to access it, it’s not there! Frustrating!  I have reset the box several times, so that’s not the issue! What is going on???
