Why is a scheduled series is not recording as programmed?

The Good Wife did not record as programmed last week on either receiver (I have 2).  It's set to record, there's plenty of space and it's prioritized #1.  The last time this happened it recorded on one receiver and not the other, same show.  What's the solution?

Check the DVR's "Recording History". What does it say about that scheduled recording?

Re: Why is a scheduled series is not recording as programmed?

There was no new episode last week. That means that even if the recording options are set to "new and repeats", if the episode was a "duplicate", defined as one that has been recorded in the last 30 days (even if it has been deleted from the disk) it won't record through a series link. Duplicates can only be recorded if you set the episode up individually.

That can also cause a repeat episode to be recorded on one DVR and not another, if the recording history on the two DVRs is different, although it's rare for this to happen.

I could have sworn I saw GW on the Sunday schedule, but didn't know a way to check after the fact.  Good thing you're a fan, Brit.  Thank you very much.
