Long recordings always cut short at 184 minutes?

    Here's something I've never seen before.

    I have a season pass on my Roamio Plus that records the first daily broadcast of Tour de France, which is typically at least four hours long. All the daily recordings currently in my NPL which were scheduled for four hours show as partial recordings, each with the same duration of 3 hours and 4 minutes.

    What could be causing long recordings to all prematurely stop at the same duration?

    Is my SDV channel getting yanked? Could this be a new issue with 20.4.2?

    Anyone else experience this or something similar?

    I have a recording for the TDF as well, and I get the morning broadcast plus an hour of padding making my recordings 5-6 hours long. I've had the update since last week and have not had any issues with it. I don't have a Tuning Adapter as I am on Fios so I can't particularly comment on 20.4.2 breaking something with SDV, but it isn't a fully generic problem with the new update. Sorry I can't help more than that.

    Virtually all my hd channels are via sdv from time Warner, and I often record single 3 to 8 hours of sports (world cup, golf, tennis, etc). I haven't seen the issue of recordings being cut short, so this definitely isn't happening to everyone. Have some set for this weekend, so I'll continue to monitor for this.

    It just seems strange that my partial recordings all have exactly the same duration.

    As a workaround, I've just scheduled manual recordings for each evening broadcast of TDF, which is edited down to three hours.
