why is my PVR cutting off the last minute of recordings?
Sometimes a show can go past its time slot due to sports events or synching issues with the show which would be why the PVR doesn’t record it fully. With certain PVR models (non HD Guide boxes), you can set the PVR to stop a few minutes after the show ends. Which PVR model do you have?
It is a Motorola DCX3510-M
Hey there lisacoff
The 3510 does tend to stop the recordings slightly earlier than you'd expect. A full minute seems like a bit more than normal though. I use the 3510 as well at home and notice around 10-20 seconds is usually left of at the end. Typically this isn't a problem as the content of the show is already past and it's only credits that are missed, but I can see it being a bit more of an annoyance if we're talking a full minute.
Can you test it please and let me know whether it is in fact 60 seconds that's being missed, or a shorter amount of time?
As a work around, if you absolutely don't want to miss anything, you can always set the following show to record as well.
