recordings stopping about 30-60 sec early

I miss the very end of many shows. Are the channels extending shows beyond the 1/2 hour or hour marks or is this a problem with my TIVO? Is there any work around besides settings up manual recording times for all my shows? If I could extend recording ala for live shows it would be ok.

Anyone else seeing this?

It's the networks, not your Tivo. You can pad shows up to 5 minutes.

Thanks,
Its listed under the options of your season pass or program listing. You can add 1, 2, 3, 5, 10, 30, 60 min to the beginning or end of the recordings, but beware that if there are subsequent (back to back) recordings and the other tuner is not available, either recordings may get cut to the planned endings or the other can get cut at the beginning, or either won't get recorded.

Networks have been doing this for about 14 years consistently now. ('er', 1998 or so was the first big one..)

Personally I find NBC the worst. Seems like all their 30 minute sitcoms runover by about 10 seconds. If it was just credits, no big deal. But usually it is the 30 second or so addon. Usually never anything earth shattering. Occasionally worth an extra giggle.

I add a minute to most of these Season Passes.
