Not sure that its a drawback of the old guide.  Recording as "first run on this channel" should get around the time change.

 

 


Someone else here said they had set a series to record "first run" and ended up missing some episodes, so even that's not foolproof. I guess if you really want to be sure, you could set it to record "this channel any time". I had to do that with Wind Tunnel on Speed when they began changing the time each week and I kept missing it. I just get one repeat.

Re: TV shows running over the hour

I thought i was the only one with this frustration, especially when you are taping your shows.

 

i find the Amazing Race always run overtime, so when The Good Wife starts later, then Menalist is cut at the end..

 

Rogers might be the middle man, but they should contact the supplier and get this fix.

 

I hope next season would be better.

Re: TV shows running over the hour

Amazing Race only runs overtime because of the stick-and-ball programs on CBS in the late afternoon. They haven't figured out that a nominal 1-hour football game can get dragged out to 4 or 5 hours. I record 60 Minutes, The Good Wife and Mentalist and usually just record everything from 7 p.m.until midnight to get those three shows.

Re: TV shows running over the hour

I know why broadcasters do that one minute delayed start, but you would think by now they would have caught on that they are not building much good will from their viewers. It is an annoyance not only for those who are recording but also for those watching in real time.
Just as an aside Amazing Race is usually on CTV and runs on schedule there.

Re: TV shows running over the hour

I've got a few shows that are recorded on a weekly basis. Sometimes, some of the episodes will only record the final minute of the show.

 

Anyone know why this happens? It seems like it happens most often when a show is postponed because a sports event was longer than scheduled, for instance.

Re: TV shows running over the hour

Which PVR?

 

I haven't seen this with the 8300, but occasionally I've seen it make 2 recordings, first just a few seconds, then another with the full hour. I've seen this on 60 Minutes, and it misses part of the intro fron the first recording to the second. I suspect it's something to do with simsubbing (I record on CBS channel 15, then it jumps to CHCH channel 11 to get the Canadian commercials) or else it's when the networks randomly change start times by a minute off the hour. But if you have a NB3, that's a whole other can of worms.
