Just wondering about something. Have you guys been checking your hard drive temps? I did abou the time I was having problems and it was in the 129 degree range. I then put a thermoloake usb powered fan on the left rear side sucking air out and my avg temps are falling fast. I have had it on since Dec. 15 or so and the avg temp went from like 125 to 105 and still falling. The low temp went to 85 degress so I will see how low the avg will go. Since then I have not had those type of problems. The only thing I get is occasional very slow to react to remote control when in the EPG.

We had the same problem with Hawaii Five-O from Monday night. We started to watch the show and five minutes into the show it jumped to the end. I recorded it from the local CBS channel off the satellite feed not the OTA feed on the VIP722k model DVR with the OTA tuner. We only been a Dish customer for less than a month and this is the first problem we've seen. Let's hope someone will take care of this problem soon.

I've seen this once on a 722k on a show recorded OTA. It's been several weeks back though. No problems since then that I've seen and the wife/kids haven't mentioned anything to me.

I typically have 80-90 active timers. The problem occurs 2 or 3 times a month on my 722k.

It occurs more often on Sat recordings, but I have more Sat timers than OTA timers so I am not surprised.

So, I guess you didn't see Brenda get shot at the end???


I hadn't watched that episode yet, Thanks for the spoiler. Not a biggie however maybe less details next time, we don't all have lots of time. I had been working my way through Leverage first.
Remember when your kids were the TV set's remote control?

Just kidding about Brenda. Don't they show that several times during the week?
I have 40 episodes of Leverage I'm working through.

It is repeated tomorrow (Saturday) at 11:00AM EST.

I do think it's cool that Brenda and Fritz are expecting a child and that Brenda's folks are moving to LA to look after the tyke.

I can't imagine that Fritz is going to be too happy when he discovers that the baby is Pope's.

Just got bit by the "end early" bug. Fortunately, the program is available once more. It was a satellite delivered channel. :mad:

Well, it happened again, this time late in the 3rd quarter of the Steelers Ravens game.
So, a big Thanks For That to Dish Network.

Perhaps, after almost 14 years, I have had enough.

Oddly enough, that's when mine ended as well. I happened to notice it and recorded the end of the game manually. The original recording was two hours and thirty one minutes long.

WOW, so did mine! With about 9 minutes left in the 3rd quarter. This is an amazing data point.

So I guess we're supposed to simultaneously record the OTA signal and the satellite signal (if we have one) to avoid the skip-to-end?

(I assume that all you guys were recording the game OTA on a 722K)

=====================================

Good idea, but no. I have had an external fan on my 722k since I got it. Low temp=86, High temp=121, Avg temp=111.

I have started doing a quick scan at 300X speed to make sure a the program completes before I watch it. At least then, I know BEFORE I get interested in the show...........

BUT THIS IS NOT A GOOD SOLUTION!!!!!!!!!!

THIS NEEDS FIXED DISH NETWORK!

Apologies, point well taken. Just very frustrated at getting cut off right in the middle of a GREAT game.

Perhaps SD can pass on the info that many of us lost the recording at seemingly the exact same time.

I could do so. I guess I would first ask was it exactly at the same point? (I can see that it may be difficult to reconstruct the exact time.)

This would possibly be important as so far, at least as far as I can see, there has been no suggestion that these early endings were not seemingly random or common to multiple receivers or source related.

PS I see a similar nasty swipe by you over in another forum:
"3 users who recorded the Steelers-Ravens game yesterday all reported that the recording "skipped to the end" at the same time (in the 3rd quarter). I believe they were all using the 722K OTA tuner. There is a bug in the 722K that needs fixing, but not sure Dish is interested."

I don't see where anyone said OTA. Don't see where all three ended "at the same time" - other than a general indication in two posts and your 9 minutes point.

I agree. As I stated before, the original timer generated a program that was two hours 31 minutes; not the four hours 30 minutes intended. I deleted the original program so I can't tell the exact moment it stopped. It would be interesting to see what time the game clock indicated. I have two more games today that I'm recording OTA so maybe I'll get another chance. Actually, I have mixed feelings about that. :)

I had it recording on the uplinked feed on my 722k. (The local CBS channel is iffy OTA.) It was a little after the 1st Pittsburgh touchdown in the 3rd quarter, really can't say exactly when, but 3 customers with the same problem at around the same time watching the same problem is certainly not likely to be a coincidence.

I know, getting pissed off about a football game is a bit silly, I just wish they would fix the problem.

If russ9 and BarrryG would post their results from Sunday's games, maybe there's a clue in there somewhere.
I'm recording both games OTA.

Yes, that's it.

The most precise I can get is: 9:06 left on the clock in the 3rd quarter, during a commercial break just after the Ford Fusion commercial ended and the next commercial began. I guesstimate it was roughly 2hr6min into the recording, but not sure on this last point.

And two of the events were recording via OTA and one was via Satellite. :confused:

Sounds right, definitely during a commercial break, I was 30 second forwarding when it happened.
