    Did anyone else notice that the ending was cut off on this week's episode? It was set to record for 1h 10m and apparently that still wasn't enough. Does anyone know how long the episode actually was so I can build in a buffer for it for next week?

    I just checked mine. The credits started rolling at 1:09 and ended properly. There was an encore starting as it cut off at 1:10.

    Good series.

    My recording got it all without any extra manual padding. And yes very good series.

    Just looked my Genie ToDo and it has 6 schedule recording for Manhattan. The problem are the 8/18 & 8/18 encores. They're all schedule to record.

    So I checked it again after you two said it recorded correctly. It had the 1h 10m window but for some reason cut off at 1h 5m. I have an HR-44 so it's not like there was a conflict. Must have been some issue with our dvr/sat. Thanks for the feedback.

    My HR 44 also cut the recording short. I had to manually record the ending off a repeat later in the week.

    This series is frustrating me. I set it to record before it came out. It recorded only the second episode, and it was cut off. I cancelled the recording and re-set it a few times. Yet it am looking at the guide and it's not scheduled for tonight. There is nothing else set to record today at all, let alone that time slot.

    The Bridge used to cut off sometimes, too, but it recorded the second airing and it would work.

    I manually recorded it. Is there a way to catch up on the series? I hope they do a marathon.

    My HR44 cut it off too. I didn't find out what happened at the gate until the "Last Time on Manhattan" at the beginning of this week's episode.

    Hulu has the episodes for free. That's how we watched the last 5 minutes of last Sunday's ep.
