722k timer 1 minutes before and 3 minutes after not working
Posted 23 June 2011 - 12:14 PM
If you look at the actual options screen it will say 1 minute early and 3 minutes late, but the schedule for it still says it will start recording right when the Guide has it to start and right when the Guide says it will end.
I have called dish CS several times and they have no answers for me.... Has anybody else experienced this??

In my 922 daily schedule I notice that the schedule doesn't always reflect the start/end times completely accurately.
The most important thing is... does the timer actually fire early when supposed to and continue recording late?

As far as I know, 1 minute early and 3 minutes late are "soft" pads that only happen if they create no conflicts. If you want guaranteed padding, you use larger numbers.
Not exactly true. The default 1/3 allow the unit to record back to back shows on the same channel without using another receiver. I've had back to back to back shows with these defaults and the record time is exactly 60 minutes.
