Not sure what's going on, but the schedule in which the show are on are all jacked up. Even stranger, the programming is actually following this schedule!

Its showing The Daily Show at the moment and says it started at 4:14pm. Its almost 4:30 and its only halfway through the show. This is really bizarre. This is happening on our other DVR as well.

Anyone else seeing this? I searched but didnt find anything.

Yep, that's their schedule. I only record Daily Show so don't know if this is normal or not for them. I checked several days, and it seems like it might be standard.

Not sure if it is related, but I ordered a Pay Per View movie today and before it ended it stopped playing and changed to the "the show starts in" screen. I tried watching it later and the same thing happened. I few minutes ago I saw a "technical difficulties" screen on one of the PPV channels.

Wow, then something changed recently cause it never used to be like that, and I've been watching TDS since Kilborn.

Don't understand the logic at all for such jacked up start times.

Well, just found this, guess that explains it, but its still really dumb:

I used to be annoyed when a show would end at 10:01 and cause a 10pm show to not record. Fortunately I was able to resolve that with technology :)

whatever. didn't even notice it.
I do, I offer a complete and utter retraction. The imputation was totally without basis in fact, and was in no way fair comment, and was motivated purely by malice, and I deeply regret any distress that my comments may have caused you, or your family, and I hereby undertake not to repeat any such slander at any time in the future.
