TCM running off schedule
Posted 03 November 2003 - 12:28 PM
I recorded Anne Of The Thousand Days overnight on my DirecTivo. The good part: They showed the film in it's original aspect ratio.
The bad part: TCM ran off schedule. The recording caught the tail end of The Mark Of Zorro (1920), and a quick check of the recording shows that the end of Anne was cut off near the end of the film. So, now, another several month wait until this movie airs again.
Maybe we should have a thread called "Unusual Padding needed". I set up my other TCM recording to record 5 minutes longer.
And I shot off a e-mail to TCM.
Check out my list of links.

If that's still true, then TMC has no reason to try to mess up DVR recordings, right? I figure that it has more to do with TMC sometimes trying to shoehorn as many movies into a block of time, with the result that stop/start times aren't on the half hour or even the 5-minute mark.
