Heres a question, try recording the same movie a couple more times on hbo, and see if it is interrupted during the credits each time.  also try a few other movies and see if its there as well.  I have a feeling its only sometimes on some movie's but not sure.

 

Frankly, in todays day and age, the only way I expect to get a movie completely free of anything start to finish is if i buy the blu ray version.

 

I have a question too: If you hired me to do something top notch regurarly, wouldn't you expect it ALL the time? Wouldn't you be upset if I sometimes did a poor job for the money you are paying me? Same with premium channels...I expect it ALL the time.

 

But yes, those physical discs are the only way to go now.

Actually, if it was for true blood, I suspect that it was mainly done for the big season premier and the fact that they where having a free preview weekend as well. I doubt they do it much more often than free weekends in this situation, which is my point. And I expect a bit different when its a free weekend anyway. I'm glad they don't do those stupid crawls though half the movies anymore during free weekends.

I bet you're in the very very very very small minority on wanting credits untouched. This is one of the weirdest complaints I've ever seen/read.

I  record movies a week ahead of time. When the movie is over I stop my DVR & delete the movie.

You must be watching MGN Movie channel. They have commercials in the movies. I stopped watching that.

I recorded it Sunday morning at 2:05am (Saturday night for some). The credits were intact.
