jakeandbrie - this happens to the individual recording/timers. I have even gone in and edited the timer to start recording 1 hour early to try to minipulate the recording. But that never has changed the recording. I still get the last 5 minutes of the programs and sometimes the next 1 or 2 shows after my scheduled timed show most of the time. Very frustrating to have to go into ABC app on my phone to watch the shows, if available. Sometimes they are not available and I end up missing shows because of the issue.
We have had the same problems on ABC. We went to watch The Good Doctor, and only partials were recorded, sometimes less than half the show. We just happen tonight on AGT, again on ABC. PTAT shows the recording, but less than half is recorded, the last half. Quite frustrating.
It never shows skipped. Only records partial and the whole episode after. I have cancelled and reprorammed the shows. At this time it only does this to Grey’s Anatomy and the Good Doctor.
I've tried everything to fix this issue. If you watch the ABC shows right away it works if you wait till it goes to hopper mode it screws up the recordings like all these emails suggest. I keeping waiting for it to get fixed. This has been happening for at least 2 years. With that losing HBO and almost missing Fox football games; not sure I can take much more. Please help.
Hey BaileyCrest, since this has become a lengthy thread, I do want to clarify that I know what issue you're having so that we can properly address it. Are you having the same issue Major Havoc mentioned in their first post, recordings from PrimeTime Anytime missing the last 3 or first 3 minutes?
What it does is it records the last few minutes of a show. Sometimes it ends at the scheduled time, other times it records the next show, too. My experience has been that it is only on Fox.
PTAT is enabled. Sometimes I create a timer manually (by selecting it in the guide and telling the DVR to record the series). Other times I see someing in the PTAT menu and and tell it to record the series from there.
