    I read somewhere else that 24 still started at 9 eastern / 8 central instead of 9:20/8:20. If this is true I am going to miss the first 20 minutes on my recording.

    At least in my case, 24 started right where it was supposed to (I was slightly impressed). Haven't checked Prison Break yet.

    I don't understand how or why this messed up prime time on the west coast.

    Unless the guide data was messed up, and it thought prime started 20 minutes late,
    when it actually started on time.

    3 hours is plenty of time to get back on schedule, Mountain Time Zone was able to do it in under an hour.
    I've been in TV for 17 years, it just doesn't compute.

    Huh, Prison Break recorded just fine on my Series 2 (I didn't change anything).
    I haven't checked my Series 1.

    That's exactly what happened to me in the Mountain time zone (Idaho). Guide data said Prison Break was starting at 7:20 and 24 at 8:20, but in fact they started at 7:00 and 8:00. So I missed the first 20 minutes of Prison Break, but was able to see the beginning of 24 because it was recorded as the end of Prison Break.

    Apparently, it was intermittant. Parts of us got it on time, and some didn't. They pulled from an East Coast feed or something. They mentioned it in our local newspaper, but didn't give an explanation - just a recap of what we missed.
