    So I noticed last night that all my shows with padding are starting at the point after the padding, rather then at the beginning. This has been a long standing issue with streaming shows but never effected local recordings until now.

    Is everyone else seeing this too?

    Between this and the feature that allows a single tuner to record back to back shows I really think TiVo is working toward an auto-padding feature.

    Dan,

    Can you explain further? I just got my 2nd Roamio so I'm not familiar with the streaming issue and padding to know what to be looking for.

    If you pad a recording at the start when you play the recording it'll start after the padding. So say you pad a record with 5 minutes at the start. When you play it the recording will start at the 5 minute mark. This has been the case for shows streamed over the network for a couple of years now, but it didn't effect local recordings. With the most recent update I'm seeing the same thing with local recordings as well.

    I have not noticed this, but so many of my shows are on holiday hiatus, there's almost nothing to test.

    I just set some manual recordings with pads to test this.
