    We were left hanging recording the last episode of "American Horror Story - Freaks" a few seasons back. So we changed settings to record more than an hour on FX shows after that. Didn't notice that the last episode of "People vs. OJ Simpson" ran longer, so we were left hanging in the middle of Johnny Cochran's victory party. VERY upsetting.

    Yeah, this issue happened to me with The People vs. OJ Simpson for a few episodes towards then end (didn't in the beginning), and now it's happening with the last couple eps of The Americans (which didn't at the start of the season). Very annoying. I see this goes back to 2014, you'd think DirecTV would have fixed this issue by now. So far it's only with FX for me too.

    Could it be??? Maybe??? Maybe they fixed it? I've had no issues with my recording on the Strain or AHS this season at all. They all have recorded with no cutoffs.

    I've noticed that (in the guide, at least) that AHS this season all eps so far seem to start and end right on-the-hour. Probably what made the difference this season.

    Issues were usually associated with programming that went more than 5 or 6 mins past the hour.

    I had one ep last season that only recorded 15 minutes!
