Hopper Doesn't Record Complete Shows, Only The Last Few Mins

I have the newest Hopper and since October of this year I have noticed, only for Fox TV shows, that my Hopper does NOT record the entire show.
Example I have it set to automatically record Brooklyn 99. It's a 30 minute show that starts at 9:30pm and ends at 10pm.
BUT what gets recorded is the LAST 10 minutes of the show. I checked my timers and they are correct. I decided to wait and watch the show LIVE to see what time it comes on. Sure enough at 9:30pm the show comes on, but the DVR only recorded the last 10 minutes of the show.

So what is going on!? This only happens with Fox TV shows, no other shows. Any ideas??

Thanks

Is this being recorded through Prime Time Anytime or a manual timer? If it's through a manual timer, try deleting the timer and re-setting it up, and see if that helps.

I would also suggest, as a test, turn off PTAT for all but one channel, one day a week and make that channel/day one on which you have no timers set.

How do I turn off PTAT timers?

To answer the first question, my shows are recorded by a manual timer.

Thx

It's not just Fox. We are having the same issue here in Southern CA. It only seems to do this on Prime Time saved series recordings.  Tech was no help when I called them.   Beginning to wonder if Dish is worth it anymore.

BDHairston, have you tried turning off Primetime Anytime and setting up a manual timer for the programming?

No I haven't but wouldn't that defeat the purpose of the PrimeTime Feature ?

I will give it a try.

Thanks
