Just tried to watch a DVR'ed movie which was listed @ 1:52 long on our VIP722k. It ended early, @ 1:11 left. Rechecked it and watched banner as it counted down from 1:52 left to 1:11, where it stopped an showed 0:00 left. This was a movie recorded when there was a free HBO Weekend. Called DISH and was informed that this could have happened because the recording was interrupted or canceled for some reason. I thought that when that happened the time would show the actual length recorded and not the theoretical length. I sent it to my EHD and it indicated it was 830 megs not the expected 3 gigs. Any thoughts?

check timers - perhaps you'll find a reason for the cancel; perhaps it was unlucky moment when the Preview flag was cut - see Uplink log here...
