I still have this problem. Every single recording starts late.

Part of the problem with my HR20's is with their inabillity to keep the correct time. I have two HR20's and have tested them split screen, scheduled to record the same show. They never start at the same time. The clocks are never the same. Neither ever matches my atomic clocks or cell phones (which are right).

I think that there is another part of the problem.

Say they program the recordings to start exactly at the right time. Let's even assume that their internal clock is exactly right.

When the triger comes, the HR20's still need to take about a year to change channels and then start recording. Watch your HR20 when it begins recording a show and you will see this is exactly what happens.

Do that by hand and see how long it takes. 5-12 seconds?

So they will always be late by 5-12 seconds if they begin the processs of changing channels and starting a recording "on time".

So at least part of the solution has to be to start recordings a little early whenever possible. Maybe automatically pad a minute to the beginning if possible?

Still this does nothing to explain why they end early so consistently.

Maybe if there wasn't code to spin those magical blue lights on the front panel the unit could actually start recording on time. :lol:
