This started a couple weeks ago. For example, Good Morning America shows it will record on DVR from 7:00 to 9:00 am every day. But when I go to watch it, I see a minute of the program before GMA, then GMA, then recording stops one minute too soon.
Same on all programs. Rebooting doesn't help. It is especially annoying when the last minute of a drama show misses the last finale, or it gets cut off.
Anyone else having this problem? Contour 2 DVR. Los Angeles area. Any fix other than manually extending end-time to all programs?
I spoke too soon. Cox replaced the DVR that wouldn't boot, replaced an amplifier & filter in the main line connecting cable service into our garage. New DVR booted fine, but a day later I noticed again that all scheduled DVR programs start a minute early recording.
Tiffany R., evidently I'm not the only one with this problem, and apparently Cox isn't the only service provider with the problem as well. See this forum thread from Xfinity with several customers have same cutoff problem. You can find others by searching Google.
Seems like some synchronization problem between DVRs, channels, carriers, and satellites--just my guess.
