My setup is in signature below.... 1. I've downloaded several HBO episodes of Game of Thrones. My Hopper prematurely terminates playback. It's at the very tail end of the program, and usually occurs during the "inside the episode" portion of the download. 2. I have timers set up to record Wilfred and Louie on FX back-to-back. Both timers are set to start one minute early and one minute late. The Hopper doesn't seem to have the intelligence to handle the overlap correctly. My DirecTV DVR would open a new file for the second recording, and the content would overlap with the end of the first recording. The Hopper doesn't do this. It simply ignores the one minute extension on the first program. A lot of times, the first program is victim to problem number one above. Playback terminates before the end of the program.
