Why is my recording only 1 second? This is happening with multiple shows on all different channels at all different times and dates. Very frustrating to miss a show you set to tape.
Hey there steph.ogara
That does sound like a pretty annoying issue, sorry to hear the PVR hasn't been as reliable as it should be. I'm sure we can take a look into this though and get things on track. I've heard of that problem before and it's fairly uncommon, but It sounds like it is happening frequently for you. Are you able to record successfully very often, or do these one second recordings happen all the time?
What I'd suggest starting with is a reset of your HD-PVR. This can be done by unplugging it for a minute, or by holding down the power button for about 20-30 seconds. If that doesn't seem to help, I can reset from this end as well.
Please let me know how that goes and we can take it from there.
Hey steph.ogara, did pulling the power cord for 30 seconds fix the 1 second recording issues for you? If you're still getting them, let us know and we might have to private message you so that we can look at your PVR in more detail.
Thanks for the reply. I have unplugged it so we will see how it goes this week with our set recordings.
If you come across any further issues please be sure to let us know:

I have been getting this problem on my Motorola 3416 as well. It has happened about 20 times so far in the past couple of months.
I will try the unplug reset.
