I was watching the finale of The Office just now on my HR34 and it says that is recorded all 1hr 15min, but right after the hour mark, the recording stops and I get the message if I want to delete the show or now.

 

What happened to the last 15 minutes that it was supposed to record?

 

Did anyone else has this?

Hi All

I got the whole show but had many picture breakups with lots of shudder and bad audio.

Clear weather with signal in the 90's

6be software.

Recorded it both SAT and OTA here in NY. Haven't watched yet, but I just skipped to the end of both recordings to check. I found the beginning of Hannibal both times, so I assume I've got it all. :up:

This exact same thing happened to me -- DirectTV HR34, and it cut off with over 10 minutes left.  The weird thing is that the bar indicating the length of the program was for the full 1:15, and it 'stopped' about 9 minutes short (marker near the end).  This was a big WTF moment in our house, and of course I had to scramble to find the remaining 10 minutes.  Besides that and my remote unit ALWAYS skipping to the end when using the 30s skip button, this setup is getting annoying.

Same thing happened several weeks ago - believe it was Celebrity Apprentice - cut off the last 30 minutes but indicated it had recorded the entire 2 hours. Keep or Delete popped up at 1:30 multiple times. Even after reboot. Luckily I caught it about 90 minutes after the fact and recorded a West Coast feed from Seattle 3 hours later.
