Stewart I have had my son in law record the shows that I mentioned on his TiVo through Comcast service. He told me that the shows I am having issues with do record in full. He also works for Charter cable and has used their equipment without any recording issues. I was with Directv up until four months ago and never had these issues with their HR series receivers. I just want to know why it is happening with my Dish service and not other providers.
