Yep, it seems to be getting even more prevalent. I noticed it tonight when my tuner switched away from live programming at 9:00 (I was in another room and heard it happen).ThomasM said:Isn't that cute how the networks pull that little 1 or 2 minute trick?
Personally, I avoid shows/networks that pull this trick (ABC seems to be the leader). If they think they can get viewers by causing them to miss the beginning of shows on other networks, they are kidding themselves. Plus, the "extra" 1 or 2 minutes is generally commercials anyway so maybe it's aimed specifically at DVR users?

I'm running 3 right now due to conflicts (esp on mon and fri).. I have as many as 5 shows on at one time..
Unlikely since DIRECTV owns all of Replay TV's Patents now and has access to TiVo's Patents through 2018webby_s said:Is there a patent that doesn't allow Direct DVR's to do this? (neg. pad.)
If you have it in the buffer, yes it will. I understand what you're trying to do, but in most cases, this is a desirable feature.scrybigtv said:Will the D* DVR always record an entire program even when you don't start recording until several minutes into the program?
Might want to check out the discussion below. /stevechargedup said:I've been out of the CE business for a while now. Do the new CE's have a solution for the conflicts caused by the 1 hour and 1 min shows.
This is why I have two networked HTPC's. I try to record the OTA ATSC stuff to the PC's. The SW I'm running will allow you to pad the recording either way +/-. Non-network shows are for the DVR's.Doug Brott said:There is no overlap protection or negative padding on the HR2x platform.
