PVR not recording full program

Last week I set the PVR to record a program from CBC (HD) at 8pm on Sunday. The program was 1 hour long. At the same time I set the PVR to record a program from CBC (HD) at 8pm on Monday. We have just tried to play them. The both programs were reported correctly in LIST as 60 minutes. When we tried to play the one from Sunday it started to play, but the bar at the bottom showed it to be only 1 minute long, and that was what played until we got the prompt to delete or not delete. Then we started the program from Monday. It  also started to play and the bar at the bottom showed it was 1 hour long and it continued to play correctly. Why did one record correctly and the other not? We have had this occur before from other channels some recording and playing correctly and some recording and playing only a minute before stopping, but this was the first time we'd tried it from the same channel at the same time but on successive days.

 

Am I doing something wrong or do I have a defective PVR?

 

This is most frustrating, and I'm seriously reviewing my decision to get a PVR.
