BattleStar Galactica Tonight 3/10

Is listed in my DirecTivo as 90 minutes long, rather than the usual 60. But more interestingly, the SciFi Friday repeats after it are scheduled 2 minutes after the half hour, so BG might actually be 92 minutes long.

I've already told my TiVo to pad for an extra five minutes on the end.

Just as a note... I see it listed as scheduled to run 92minutes.

I had some weirdness on my DTivo in Cali. My 7 pm recording was listed as "partial" being only 1:29 minutes long. When I saw that, I had my DTivo record the 10:32 pm one as well and pad it to start early and end late. When I watched the 7 pm all the way thru, it got cut off a few minutes before the end. Luckily, the padded 10:32 showing was fine and I caught the ending.

Perhaps this a bug due to a last minute schedule change or something along those lines. In the EPG, it does show the 7 pm showing ending at 8:32 pm.

Well, I didn't get those last two minutes. Care to share?

Best to discuss it at http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...6&page=1&pp=30, not here. For those who hit the weirdness too, just catch the rerun on Monday to see the last bit for youself.

Had to use the 2nd TiVo I set up in my kid's room to record it again (this time with a 3-minute pad)...it conflicts with "24" on Monday night here out West, which is what my bedroom TiVo will be recording.

For anyone who may have missed the final minutes of the season finale...go to this site:

http://www.scifi.com/battlestar/downloads/podcast/

Apparently, SCIFI must have known that many people missed it due to it going past the half hour a little and posted a link on this page to a streaming clip of the final couple minutes.
