Hi. All recent recordings on my tivo box are cutting out before the end. It is not just by a few minutes..sometimes 20 to 30 mins before end. And I know for certain that some programmes are not overrunning. Is this a fault?
Thanks. Not much on recording hiccups (I didn't think to look there originally) but one was definitely not recorded despite a series link. Not sure about the film that it out yesterday though way before the end.
Firstly Id like to welcome you to the forums and say that I'm really sorry to hear that you've been experiencing some recordings which have been cut short, I'd really like to help you out with this.
I've done some testing on your connection, and it seems that your TiVo® is currently showing as offline, this could be down to you having the box powered off, or it could be related to the fault. Could you please let me know if the box was powered off around the time that I made this post.
I've just run some testing on the TiVo® and can see no reason for this. The hard drive doesn't show any errors, and there are no issues with the power levels.
Could you please take a look at the Recording hiccups for last week, as they should still be there, when you go to this page, keep pressing the Channel Down key and it will move back in time, if you could let us know what it says when the recordings cut short.
So I had a series link to a BBC4 drama Trapped (this has two episodes per Saturday - one starting at 9pm and the other at 9.50pm). So each Saturday the second episode of this series link doesn't seem to play for very long. Having a look at the last recording hiccups it says that the 2nd show wasn't recorded (9.48) but then also that at 9.46 it attempted with the message...can recover. I know it started on time because I watched the 1st episode on Sat night.
Separately I recorded a film on Channel 4 a while back and was watching it the other day and it cut out (I would estimate) at least half hour before end. Unfortunately I just deleted this so I can't give any info on whether this film started late or not.
Thanks for letting me know. I don't have enough evidence on all the times this has happened (I get annoyed so just end up deleting the programme I have half watched) but series links seem to be the worse. Although a film cut out part way the other day. I hope your issue gets sorted soon!
