I meant i think I am the only one having this issue, i doubt it's an issue where every DirecTV customer that scheduled this game to record had the recording stopped prematurely. No one else has even brought it up. It's hard to determine if it's a hardware or software issue. If its a hardware issue, then why aren't any other of my recordings having the same problem, only NBA games on TNT? and if for some reason that's an issue, why does it record 38 minutes and suddenly stop? i have over 90% space left. I did attach a new hard drive about a month ago, but again, no issues with any other recordings. And if it's a software issue, then i wouldn't be the only one affected by this.
