    www.zap2it.com which is Tribune Media Service lists the episode at 64 Minutes. Tribune Media Service is what Tivo uses for its Guide Data.

    If people haven't learned to pad Lost by a few minutes by now, they'll never learn.

    This board has an entire forum devoted specifically to this kind of warning, btw.

    I haven't learned yet...but I haven't had an issue yet either.
    Like DougF's, currently my Tivo says it will run 64 minutes.

    Are you guys sure? I'm at work and need to get this set up now if it's going to miss some.

    EDIT: Nevermind, I'm taping Invasion afterwords, so even if Lost is long(er) I'll still get the end. I don't actually LIKE Invasion that much, but I'm sort of honor bound to watch all semi-decent Sci-Fiy shows.

    It's a sixty minute show. Yet it always goes over. You'd think by know Jack, Locke and the rest would have realized that the mystery of real time (how much plot they have written for an episode) vs experienced time (the padding ABC always manages) is the real key to what the Dharma initiative is up to.

    Last week, beforehand, TiVo indicated Lost running at 1:01, but it went to 1:04. Tonight it’s indicating 1:04, so who knows ?

    Can somebody on the East Coast please post if it goes over 1:04? That is what my TiVo says too, and if I pad I'll have a conflict. I'll give up a show for Lost if I must, but I don't want to pad if it's not necessary. I'm in CA so I have time to fix it.

    Thanks!

    Arrgh! I just went to check on my recording and found to my horror that it hadn't recorded at all due to "The Amazing Race". I'm pretty sure I'd bumped it to higher priority, but something else must have changed. I'm not real wild about watching a whole episode on the computer, but I'm not sure what other option I'm going to have.

    Thanks for letting me know, it's a relief. After the 24 west coast fiasco, I was worried.

    I'm not crazy about having to watch 24 on my computer either, but thank goodness I can! :up:

    So was the original poster already padding 5 min maybe? My recording is 1:09 because I pad 5 minutes.

    I don't understand all this talk about padding by several minutes. We all use the DirecTV TiVo service, right? I have never missed a second of Lost since I started padding it by one minute. That means TiVo has not gotten the duration wrong by more than a minute yet, in my experience.

    "We all use the DirecTV TiVo service" isn't really accurate (I own only standalones, for example), but we all certainly use the TiVo service, DirecTV or not, which gets its guide data from Tribune.

    While I find the fact that Lost consistently schedules more than an hour annoying, at least it's relatively accurate... I've never padded, and I've never missed anything.
