    Every time there is an NFL game on CBS as the national 2nd game of the day it kicks off at 4:25pm eastern. The guide STILL lists it as 4:30 so inevitably you're watching the 4th play of the game if you have a season pass for a team that has the late game.
    When will they fix this??!!!

    My guide was correct. I wonder if it is your local station causing the issue?

    I'm seeing the same thing as the OP, albeit I'm in MST. I checked my Pats@Eagles recording. It starts on 4th down. I check the prior recording on CBS, Texans@Ravens, skip to the end, and the last 5 minutes of that recording is the kickoff and start of the Pats@Eagles.

    I don't think I have this problem with FOX double headers. I have a single FOX game today, the late game, Cards@Niners, and that start time is correct (2pm MST).

    From 506sports.com Forums:
    "Games on the singleheader network that start in the 4pm window kick off at 4:05. Games on the doubleheader network in that window kick off at 4:25."

    You can fix it yourself by setting the recording options in your OnePass to start recording 5 minutes early.

    Yes I have done this now...But it's really annoying to have to pad the start of every game just to catch the start of the game because the guide is incorrect...
