    I was wondering if anyone else has this problem with many FOX shows. It recently occurred for my recordings of 24: Legacy and Bones. Saved recordings that are no longer in Prime Time Anytime are not the full recording. Often when I go to see one of these they are the last minute and then the next show. I wonder if this a Daylight Saving Time problem? It seems to only happen with FOX shows, though.

    You might want to check your timers. I know on my FOX "BONES" starts recording 1 minute after the hour so it could record 1 minute of the previous show.

    My timers are all relative to the guide settings - 1 minute before and 3 minutes after.

    Was there any recent sporting events on your local FOX affiliate that delayed programming? Our local NBC affiliate was covering the ACC basketball tourney a couple of weeks ago, for example, and had lots of NBC shows delayed as a result. IF you weren't paying attention, that could cause problems.

    No, there was nothing that delayed programming. If there was a programming change it would have had to move it an hour earlier to explain what happened. It is just weird. I just need to watch these shows on FOX during the recorded week.

    I have had this problem for years. I tried contacting DISH and got no resolution. I tried DIRT here and they couldn't help. I think the problem is fox.
    I have had shows missing time, sometimes at the end, sometimes in the middle, sometimes at the beginning. Sometimes a wrong show is recorded. It happened with my Hopper and now with my Hopper3.

    Well, at least I'm not alone. Thanks.
