Re: dvr stuck on record

Is a programming actually recording?  If so, are you able to stop the recording?

 

Also, try unplugging the DVR for 30 seconds, and then plug it back in.

Are you seeing this on the STB or the DVR?  I have seen this before on an STB.  I had to reboot the DVR, not the STB, to resolve.

Yes, when a recording is in process, the red light will appear on both the DVR and all the STB's.  Try this:

 

1. Reboot your RG by unplugging it for 30 seconds and then plugging it back in.

 

2. Once the RG completes rebooting, reboot the U-verse boxes on each of your 4 TV's.

 

3. If the red light recording appears, access the recording from the TV connected to the DVR and stop the recording.
