    Correct (in my experience). Note, however, that the glitch is relatively minor (only affecting 2 or 3 seconds of the recording); not everyone on this thread reports seeing it; and it will probably (one hopes) be rectified soon in a firmware update.

    In no way should you let this issue deter you from your purchase if you want to upgrade. And since it's firmware-related, you are just as likely to encounter it on a Premiere as a Roamio.

    I have the exact same issue with back to back shows that record on same channel. I set my shows to record for one extra minute otherwise the recording stops before the end of the show. The other issue I have noticed is the second recording on same channel is clipped at the beginning and then within a minute you see pixellation and blocking that lasts for a few seconds. This anomaly usually happens twice.

    Not going to help on Sunday night on CBS. I have to record the second program that's back to back on same channel with overlap on my Premiere XL. Right now I cannot recommend a Roamio to anyone because of this problem.

    While I consider this "solution" to be far from satisfactory, how does it "not help"? If you don't pad, they won't overlap.

    You usually have to pad on CBS on Sunday nights due to sports. Right now I record 60 Minutes on my Premiere XL and TAR on the Roamio Pro, with a 90 minute pad on the end of the show on both shows.

    That just means that you can't utilize the "solution", not that it wouldn't help.

    Right now, I'm sort of torn. The video glitch, while annoying, is tolerable, and without this feature, I would need at least 7 HD tuners to have even minor padding for the Sunday night shows that don't repeat. When you include the stuff that does repeat but I would prefer to get the first showing of, it goes to 9. I have 8 - a THD, a Premiere, and a Roamio Basic.

    I just hope that they at least get the scheduler problem fixed before NFL season.

    I had two shows missed due to the 'No Longer in Guide' error this past week. All my season passes are padded by 2 minutes on each end. In both instances the shows were the 2nd of back to back records on FOX (though channel doesn't matter, I've had it happen on multiple channels int he past). On 3/3 'The Following' failed to record - 'Almost Human' recorded fine before it. Tonight 3/11, 'Brooklyn 99' failed to record while 'New Girl' recorded fine before it.
    Cannot wait for the spring update to turn off this feature until it actually works properly.

    How about Tivo fixing their DVRs to work properly.

    But if The Mentalist isn't on that night and The Good Wife is, then you've missed the end of The Good Wife, no?

    Yes, of course. But that kind of a bug fix will not happen overnight, hopefully it will be included in the "spring" update.

    Actually, I'm a bit annoyed that Tivo didn't fix this quickly (or yet). They KNEW this feature didn't work correctly. They took it out of an update and then added it back. This was November 2013.

    Seems to me Tivo's first priority should be to make their DVR functions work correctly.

    I believe Margret posted somewhere that adding it back was an unintentional mistake.

    Spring update is coming at the end of next week. There's a priority list if you want to be in the first batch to get it: http://tivo.com/priority

    This is exactly the problem I have! Amazing Race on CBS has a 1.5 hr padding. The Good Wife follows, and erratically fails to record, as you describe.

    Thanks for the info.

    Does anyone know.....can you only add 1 TSN to the priority list? I added my first Roamio and it took, but the second said it's not eligible. Also in the error page it has a conflicting statement:

    "If your box is a TiVo Roamio or a TiVo Mini it will be automatically updated the day the release becomes available."

    Just looking forward to being able to pad shows again.

    EDIT: Margret fixed the issue for Basic TSN not being able to sign up.

    I had an overlap glitch while recording ABC last night. I have season passes for ABC series on Wednesday night, each padded 1 minute at the end.
    • The Middle - Recorded without problem
    • Suburgatory - Recorded without problem
    • Modern Family - Recording of Suburgatory
    • Mixology - Recording of Suburgatory
    • Nashville - 2.5 hour recording starting with Suburgatory, then Modern Family, Mixology, and Nashville.

    All six tuners were busy between 8-9PM. First time that I've seen that happen.

    Hoping that the Spring Update is released today for anyone who signed up as that is supposed to fix this problem.

    Which of those shows are in the 8-9 pm time slot? That should only use one tuner. You had five other recordings going then?
