Sometime in the past few months, Autohop has dissappeared. I am recording using Primetime Anytime. I frequently watch shows after recording. I understand Autohop was hit-and-miss based on network, show, and time-since-recorded. But now it is not an option on anything.
I do have HD locals. And the recording of prime time is working fine. I realize that autohop may only be active a day later, but eight days? What good is that when the maximum retention of prime time anytime recordings is eight days? (Another pet peave.) Does the availabilty of autohop change per market? Or is it a network deal? I have changed markets several times since it last worked. It worked fine in Houston. Iwas next in the Austin market fo a few weeks and can't say for sure if it worked or not. I was then in the Little Rock morket for a couple weeks, and only had SD locals, so prime time anytime recording didn't happen. I have now been in the Dallas market for a month with HD locals and recording works, but autohop does not at all.
