Cant Record specific channel?

I want to record a news show on NY1 (Cable channel 1 in NYC). I can watch the channel live but when I click the record button nothing happens. I tried to create a manual recording but it does not appear in "View Scheduled"???

Can you set the record from your guide listings?

You may need to add Channel 1 as a channel in your list.

Tasks --> Settings --> TV --> Guide --> Edit Channels

Channel 1 is added and in my guide. I cannot set it from the guide listings. For some reason the record does not stick.

Sounds like it's a channel like internet TV, you can watch those but you can't record them. That's my guess anyway since I don't actually get that channel to try myself.

No, this is an over the air channel that he is receiving, as described by his setup.

OP - have you read this? Why didn't my TV show record in Windows Media Center?

I dont think any of those addresses my issue. Normally when you go to the guide, select a program you have the option to click "record" which then toggles to "do not record" (which indicates the record command has been accepted... however when I click record on NY1 nothing happens. It works for other channels. I also tried manually to record the channel and it failed.
