Advertisements This has happened twice in the past week and it is mucking with my life. A three hour recording kicks off according to a Season Pass. 30 or 40 minutes in, the recording stops. When I go to play back, the green bar starts from 0 and goes to 30 minutes, then it ends. The remaining 2.5 hours is blank. Today I caught this happening about 1.5 hours in. I went into live TV. The show was broadcasting nicely. When I pushed Record, it resumed recording plus the 30 minute buffer. Another 3 hour show, starting at the same time on another channel, recorded perfectly with no hiccups. Can anybody suggest a reason this might be happening and how to cure it?
