Customer Question

We enjoy watching old recordings such as Heartbeat / The High Shaparral ETC.
Quite a few of the recordings cut off just before the end.
I have the timer set 5mts. before the start and 10 Mts after they should finish any thoughts as to how to cure this.

Hi, what make and model of VCR\DVR are you using.


There are features on many devices which allow 'auto starting' and 'auto ending' to allow for tv programmes which start or end early to be captured, it might be the TV company is broadcasting the end of the programme to early and the DVR thinkgs the program has finished.
