Recordings cut short - Xfinity - Seattle area

Hello,

I have noticed lately that most of my shows are cut off early at the end, The Blacklist, Seinfeld are a few to list.

What do people do in these situations ? add 5-10 minutes to start/end of shows ?

Thanks,
Houman

On the Settings>Recording>OnePass and Recording Options page, you can set a global default to always add some number of minutes to the ends of your recordings. By default, I always add a minute. For those occasional shows that consistently need more than that, I add more time in their particular OnePass options.

Thanks for the global option, I had been looking for it but couldn't find it.

Though it seems that option is taken into consideration for all newer recordings and not the already in place. Unless there is a trick to apply it to all recordings already in onepass.

You may be able to fix everything in your To Do List by changing the One Pass, then doing a reset of the To Do List. I don't see anyway to change the One Pass entries already entered.

If changing the global option doesn't alter existing passes, you can certainly go in and change their options manually. But if you have a lot of them, that's a pain.

If you happen to use kmttg, the Remote feature allows for much quicker OnePass editing. That's probably the easiest, fastest way to edit a big list of them.

if this is happening on more than a couple of shows or channels, you should consider going a step further and report the behavior to tivo tech support, possibly as incorrect guide issue.

we have xfinity and rarely have to extend any passes, exceptions being a specific channel or show here and there, or for sports overruns (yes, i'm talkin' to you, sunday night cbs!).

CBS schedule issues

Apparently, I'm not the only one with CBS issues. I have extended the recording time on all my passes for CBS shows. I even began to think CBS is screwing with us, so, if we want to watch the balance of a show, we would have to subscribe to their, I believe it's called, All Access. A conspiracy Theory? ? ?

It doesn't happen for all the shows, just some. Some get cut right before the ending credits, some like Seinfeld (TBS) get cut in the short clip right before the credits roll, and if there is a recording right after I can get a glimpse of the ending of the previous episode It is usually a 30sec -> 1 min issue.

But on other shows it's fine like Better Call Saul, Vikings, etc. I just wish it was a fire and forget type thing for all shows, but worst case I can go and add 1min manually to those shows.

btw thanks for all the replies and that application, I'll check it out.

I always add 2 minutes to my recordings. Comcast time and local time are not the same.
