I had clicked on a program in the guide that was 3 1/2 hours long. When I checked the timer it was set for 3 1/2 hours. The recording stopped at 3 hours. She's gonna be a bit unhappy 'cause it was Eastenders. At least it repeats Thursday all day so I should be able to get it. I've already set a protected timer for the earliest broadcast so I can check it. I guess I can always do a manual record.
