What happened with todays F1 race in Monaco? my series recording starts with the finish.

 I have a series setup for qualifing and the race.  The race was on NBCSHD 1640 at 4:30am ET, so it was scheduled for 7:30 AM Pacific time (I'm in CA), all found automatically via the series but the times looked correct to me as per the advertisements.   The recording says it indeed started at 7:30 and lasts 2.5 hrs.  It opens with Rosberg on the podium.  $%&@#!   Color me a very unhappy consumer.   The qualifing session was recorded just fine.   What the heck went wrong here?  When was this broadcast?   Barcelona was recorded just fine a couple of weeks ago.

So I can't trust my guide to record the live event, apparently. It recorded the end of the live event and then the replay, when my DVR is set to record first airings, no replays. So I start playing the recorded race and am instantly greeted with a shot of the podium. Great. Very disappointed...I don't have to set recordings manually for other shows and events and I didn't miss a single race last season, when it aired on Speed. Really angry about this.

No, the race was not shown live on NBC Sports Network (channel 640/1640).  The race was shown live on your local NBC affiliate station.  To watch that race live, you needed to have a series recording set for your local NBC affiliate not NBC Sports Network.  

 

There will be other Formula One Grand Prix races this year which will be shown live on either your local NBC affiliate or CNBC (channel 216/1216).  Not all the races will be shown live on the NBC Sports Network.

The point is, I have the DVR set to record series, first run only, no replays, and the first frame I see when I start playing the recording is the podium, followed by the post race, and then the replay of the race. Having immediately seen the podium, I don't much care when they are playing replays!

That's because you set it up wrong by an incorrect change from ET to PT.  Guess you're not interested in the race as you already know who won. Smiley Surprised

If you think that F1 is messed up with NBC, 640/1640 and CNBC, try the NASCAR Nationwide Series.  They can be on ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN Classic (Richmond in May) and ABC.   I have Series recordings on all four networks.

Dave, you forgot ESPNNews (ESN 604/1604), 1 race was already there and another one 9/21. Smiley Very Happy

Maybe it was ESPN News and not Classic but long story short, if you don't have all of those other channels set, ESPN 2 will often still record their first replay as a First Run as it is the first time that it aired, on 1606.  AND in 2015, ESPN isn't going to bid on all Nationwide races, meaning more channels will have to be scheduled.  Yecch!

It wasnt just you, it happened to us too, start the recording only to see the podium finishers right at the beginning. Apparently it wasnt a uverse or DVR issue because if you google it, comcast people are complaining they saw the exact same thing too. Its NBC, I wish it was still with Speed.

Yup.  Please see texasguy37's chart, a few posts up that shows what network F1 will be on, between NBC, NBC Sports and CNBC.  I would make sure that you Series set up on all 3.  Of course, you will have to wait until closer to time to set the two CNBC ones.

As I recall, not all of the races were on Speed.  There were occasional races that were on on your local Fox affiliate.  So now that the NBC Sports Group has the rights, the situation is no different.  You need to check the TV schedule for the race to see which channel it will be broadcast on.  Don't make the assumption that all the races are broadcast live on NBC Sports Network (640/1640) because they are not.

Re: What happened with todays F1 race in Monaco? my series recording starts with the finish.

I had the same problem with Monaco, but today's Montreal GP was an even worse mess.

 

I have both the quallies and the races scheduled to record at any time. It was supposed to run in real time at 10 am; that didn't happen. Then it was supposed to run at 8 pm; I went to the NBCHD channel at 7:45, we were getting a tour of the pits. It wasn't the race and the GD voice-over told us who had run the frickin' race! Then I went away, figuring the race would run at 8 pm. At 8:10, they were running a special (in German!) on Sebastian Vettel. But NO RACE. After the special, they ran a hockey game! As far as I know, the GP was not broadcast at any time today, at least in Southern California.

 

What a load of krap! I want my money back.

According to the schedule above, the live race was at 11 am PDT on NBC and the replay was at 4 PM on NBCSN. 

 

Remember, you have to schedule recordings on the channel where they are shown.

You were answered in your own thread, but getting your money back for your mistake isn't going to happen.  You need to check the broadcast schedule (I posted it in your thread).  The next two races aren't on NBCSports so they won't record on that channel.
