After a bit I realized the game should be over by that time and paused the DVR and the marker was at the beginning of the 30 minute buffer. If I changed the channel and went back, then it was up to date.
Anyone know why this happens?
Somebody sat on the remote or the cat was playing with it or something triggered the TiVo to rewind on that channel, which it did until it got to the beginning of the 30 minute cache, and at that point it quit backing up and started moving forward again at a rate of one second per second.
And that was the state in which you found it, on that tuner, but when you channel changed that tuner it dumped the cache and started caching the new channel, and when you changed back it dumped that cache and started caching the original channel again.
At least that's my guess.
