Does anyone else notice that when a program is recorded, the recording ends before the program is actually over?

Frequently when we watch a show we have recorded, the recording stops before the program actually ends.  We also notice that when we start to watch the recorded show, that it often starts with the end or a previous program...

      Yes we have the same problem on both DVR-6 tuners.  Crystal S, what is Cox doing to escalate and solve and fix this problem?

        Hi John2222

        I know it is important to you to record all of your favorite shows. You can always set the DVR to recover 1-2 minutes early and stop 5 minutes late. See the links below to help you with those settings.

      Same issue here in Laguna CA....records 45 seconds early and misses final 45 seconds. Having us add recording time to the DVR is a bad solution. Cox just has to look into the Time problem and resolve it.
