    It's customary to blame schedule inaccuracies on Tribune Media. However, last week was the season premiere of Justified on FX. It was scheduled to run at 10pm and 11pm. Due to a schedule conflict at 10pm, I recorded the 11pm showing. I realized I got the last five minutes of the 10pm showing first and missed five minutes of the 11pm when showing when the recording cut off.

    Tivo's program guide showed Justified running one hour - starting and ending on the hour. But I checked Comcast's program guide and they had the correct times and showed the program running 65 minutes. Comcast boxes would record the start and end of the show correctly. Comcast boxes' on screen listings carry a TV Guide logo. Maybe their listings are more accurate than Tribune Media's.

    If somebody from Tivo reads this, I hope they will talk to Tribune about it. We pay Tivo for program listings and Tivo pays Tribune (Tivo must be one of their biggest clients). I think we have a right to expect accurate - to the minute - listings, without having programs cut off at the beginning or end.

    Worked perfectly with Comcast in Chicago, as well. Must be a Phili thing.

    I also recorded the second airing last week, but had no issues, it recorded 1:06 just like it was scheduled.

    Comcast in Seattle recorded 60 minutes. Cut off just as they were saying stay tuned for scenes from the upcoming season so I didn't miss any of the actual episode.

    Comcast Houston recorded one hour on the first (premiere) showing. Cut off 6 minutes. Luckily we watched "close to live", so we finished watching from the buffer.

    Odd that some places got hit and others didn't.

    You missed a key and critical final scene. Another minute or two of show, and a couple minutes of "coming this season" scenes.

    I recorded the rerun, padded it with an extra minute, and it still cut off the last scene.

    We ended up downloading the episode just to see what happened.
