I was wondering why shows always get cut off when I use the guide to schedule a recording on the PVR. I miss the last minute of shows i recorded.
It would be nice if the PVR guide used the information that is found in the Zap2It program guide rather than the TV Guide listings. The Zap2It guide has more accurate start/stop times based upon the actual running time. For example, it knows if a program, like Big Bang Theory, is scheduled to run from 8:00-8:31. If the PVR used that, it would be much better.
Adding a minute to the end of the show works. (Though you have to also subtract a minute from the beginning of the following show if you're also recording something else, to avoid the dreaded attempt to record 3 shows.)
Here's the problem. You have to redo this every time, i.e., if you say All Episodes, it's accepted for the first, but reverts to the basic 1/2 hr slot next time.
Example: 2 1/2 Men 9:00-9:31, Mike & Molly 9:31-10:00. All Episodes. Come Monday, it's recorded that way. Next day, look at the Recording Schedule for the next Monday. It's back to 9:00-9:30; 9:30-10:00.
One of the nice things about the new firmware update is that you do not have to do it every time. I have added a minute to 2 1/2 Men and it now remains set from week to week without having to change it every week!
Excellent news! Thanks! But I still look forward to the listings to be accurate to the minute.
