I just noticed that at 4:41 AM EST today my DVR started recording something for a negative minute. The stop time is 4:00 AM EST. The title says Manual, No title available. I also think it recorded channel 8887. Anyone know what this is? Curious.

Pretty sure it's PPV/VOD info.


Good TV (Cable). Better TV (Dish Network). DirecTV.

I have the same thing on one of my 3 HR24 DVR's. It is channel 8893* or something like that. A -1 minute recording with of course nothing there.
