    I was wondering why they were not showing You Are The Worst on Fx when I notice they had change it to FXX. At least I could catch up
    on Demand.

    I was having this issue on FX with B@stard Executioner. But last night watched the October 6th episode that was recorded after I got the current 0xa72 software and my HR44 recorded the entire 1:22 of the show instead of stopping with delete/don't delete prompt at the 1:05 mark. I had no padding set up for the series link. A good sign hopefully.

    "Bastard Executioner" on FX had the problem for me last night on my HR44/700, the repeat airing plays through fine as does the "backup" recording on an HR24/100 the original airing had 15 minutes added to it........ so much for the padding idea!!!!!!

    No it's not FX. I watched all seasons of Justified on 2 HR24-500's and never had this problem. I recently downgraded to an HR54-500 and last night on The Bastard Executioner it stopped at 1:05 when the recording was 1:30. I called DTV and they said they knew about the problem on Genies and it had been happening since 10/19. Not sure the rep knew what he was talking about, but the previous episode of the Bastard Executioner recorded and played back fine on the HR54-500

    Here is a link to YouTube video of the Bast@ard Executioner Failing. It's on again tonight and I am going to record on both HR24 and HR54. It would suck to have to record copies of all FX shows on the HR24 but I guess that is now going to be one of the reasons why I kept an extra receiver.

    My recording of BE played through to the end this time. HR 34-500.

    I guess that I've been lucky. Ever since first experiencing this problem, I've added 15 minutes to the end of everything that I record on FX and have not had anything cut off before the end since. I know that some others have said that the 15 minute padding hasn't always worked for them. But, it seems to have done the job for me (fingers remain crossed).

    That's because this problem only exists on Genies.

    The original airing of the October 13th episode of BE recorded fine and complete on my HR44 with just a normal series link (no padding). That's 2 weeks in a row for me.

    The 11/3 BE was cut off for me on my HR44. All the October airings had recorded fine on it since I got software 0xa72. As I'm still on 0xa72 and the 11/3 episode did not record the whole way, it appears the issue is not software related. Frustrating.

    For me, it's AHS. Every dang episode it gets cut off no matter how long is the padding.

    Yes, I've pretty much resigned myself to the 1st run showing on FX being 1:05 if it's longer than that. It's more rare now that it goes past 1:05 than stopping there. I failed in getting AHS episode 4 (1:09) re-recorded and now will have to watch it without FF on Demand I guess just to get the last 4 mins. What I have decided to do now, even though it is a pain in the butt, is to go into the To Do list and find my FX shows (Fargo, AHS), select Other Showings, set the next showing to record and cancel the 1st showing. I have yet to have the 2nd or subsequent showing not work properly.

    How do you set the second airing in the series manager?

    After ToDo List Find AHS showing | Select Other Showings | press ® on the later showing | hit back or left arrow key to take you back to ToDo List | Cancel 1st run showing | Cancel Episode

    Ahhh, thank you so much for the tip. I didn't knew. So, when you set to record the second showing, is it permanent or do you need to set this up each week?

    I canceled all FX shows on the HR44 and moved them over to the HR24 and they have been flawless ever since.

    Yes, it has to be done every 2 weeks, (which is as far as the guide will extend). And yes, if you have another DVR other than a Genie it will record just fine.
