Incomplete recording stops before time alloted

Incomplete recording stops before time alloted

Twice I have now had programs scheduled to record for 1:10 stop at 1:05 missing, in both cases, the crucial last scene.  It is irritating to say the least, especially when someone else had the same complaint on this site but it is Locked so I have no chance to view the response.

Are they on FX? it's a commonly reported problem, due to some weird guid e data problem. I have padded all my FX series links by 30 minutes to make sure I get them.

One was on A&EHD, the other was WGNHD.  As I said, the frustrating part of it is the length of the show recorded bar read 1:10 which was the length of the show in the guide, but both stopped at about 1:05 leaving the crucial last 5 minutes unviewable.

Not seen the problem on any channel except FX but maybe it's the same issue.

Evidently not solvable by DirecTV.  You have to change the recording stop times.
