Why did my scheduled recording not record when there were no conflicts?
I'll get you plugged in!
check your priorities list as well. sometimes show conflict with each other and the DVR will resolve these conflicts by looking at the recording priority of each show. the one with the highest priority will be the show it records I doubt you ran out of recording time unless you've recorded a whole week worth of shows. I assume everything is hooked up right otherwise you wouldn't be watching TV. I would test it by recording something on both the joey and the hopper at the same time and see what happens. normally this shouldn't be a problem. there could be a glitch with either one. Also you can consult your manual about recording, starting on page 57 or go here: http://www.mydish.com/support/manuals Hope this all helps.4 comments

the hopper/joey automatically records prime time channels.
if you push the guide and scroll to the right from 7pm -11pm on the local channels, you ll see 'PT' on each show. it records on the hopper w/out setting up timers for those shows. if you set a timer to record the prime time channel, there will be a conflict.
if you want to disable the primetime channel recording.
select prime time
Relax, I'm here to help!
you don't have to watch much to use prime time anytime, it also doesn't take up any of your hard drive space unless you save the specific show you were watching, this would eliminate your loss of show. that is strange as all recordings are done on the hopper and just accessed through the joeys

I know the system better than the system!
It is possible that the episode in question was not a first-run and you have your timer set up for first-run programs. It is also possible that it WAS a first-run but the guide incorrectly displayed it as not. I have only had that happen once (in reverse) when a timer recorded a show from 2005 claiming it to be first-run. In the future if you see the red icon you can check your schedule (open the DVR and then press the red shortcut key and select "daily schedule") once you locate the offending program with the red icon, select it and it will tell you why it is red. You can also choose to restore that particular episode to have it record.
