    We set up a program to record the other day and it only recorded the first 15 minutes of an hour-long show.

    We've had TiVo for almost 2 years and typically and I'm certain we did it correctly. Has anyone had this happen, or does anyone have an explanation?

    Thanks!

    Does is say something like "Program length: 15 minutes (partial)"?

    Look in the recording history. I think it will say something about the reason why only part of the program recorded. It may be because someone changed the channel, your TiVo momentarily lost power (It will pick up again after it reboots and the NPL will show two seperate segments) or the cable went out (I think in this case it will continue to record a blank image).

    If you ask it to record a program the duration should automatically be caught correctly.
