Premiere is 15 seconds fast

I got a Premiere in November and it consistently runs 15 seconds too fast (compared the on-screen time display to an atomic clock), so it cuts off the last bit of each program. I contacted TiVo and they suggested rerunning guided setup using a different zip code, but that didn't fix the problem, still the same 15 seconds fast. Is this a problem with my unit or with Comcast? (I'm not clear if the unit gets the time from Comcast or TiVo). Thanks!

It gets its time from TiVo when it makes the daily call.
I have noticed the same thing. If TiVo gets a time update every day why is it always off? Never did check time VS atomic clock.
I never trust TiVo's time or the network's time. As long as I don't have a recording conflict, everything gets a beginning and ending pad of at least 1 minute.
Thanks for the replies. I told TiVo their suggestions didn't work and they suggested i call tech support, which I will do sometime, though I don't have much hope of a fix. In the meantime, I guess I'll have to go through and add a minute to the season passes and make sure the priorities are right. A bit of a pain, but compared to the problems others are having, I guess I should consider myself lucky if that's the worst of it.
Yep, it's tivo. Have to add a min. to everything except movies.
