Out of curiosity, if a VOD recorded a D* DVR has an expiration listed of 4/23, when exactly does it delete itself/become unwatchable?


4/23 at 00:00:00 local time? (Edit - Passed so this isn't it)

4/23 at 00:00:00 Pacific Time (DirecTV headquarters)? (Edit - Passed so this isn't it)

4/23 at 06:00:00 Eastern (seems most channels move to the next month on their schedules at this time)? (Edit - No this isn't it)

4/23 at 23:59:59 local time?

4/23 at 23:59:59 Pacific Time (DirecTV headquarters)?

4/24 at 06:00:00 Eastern (again, seems most channels move to the next month on their schedules at this time)?


or some other random time?

I think it's 4/23 at 23:59:59 local time.  But not 100% sure.
