Hello RRRDAD! Are you only unable to set a timer for the channels included in the NHL Center Ice package? If you can please send me a private message, we can certainly take a closer look at what's going on.
I am having the same issue minus the penguins (Go Caps). Did you have any luck having this issue fixed? Support sent me a new DVR and after 4 days of transferring my recordings, I am still having the same problem. Only fix I have come up with if you can call it a fix, is that If I manually find the game I want to record on the guide and then select it to record it will but this can only be done a few days out. Setting a timer to record all the games of a select team does not work, when using game finder app or google assistant.
