Strange dvr issue

Message 1 of 2

Basically when i am fast forwarding and it gets down to the final minutes and i stop, it just ends the program. Have had this problem for a while now.


I am not fast forwarding all the way to the end. usually it is 1 to 3 minutes before the end of the recording and when i stop it, bam, program just ends and i have to start it all over again to try and see the final minutes. I fast forward on the slowest speed and it happens like clock work every single time.


What's the deal with this?

You are not alone. I've hit this very same issue more times than I can count. If you know that you're near the end, it is better to just let it fast forward to the very end. Then the program will automatically back up a minute or so giving you enough time to trick play to where you want to be. However if you are watching the program from an STB, this usually won't work either. Until they decide to fix this glitch, don't forget that after restarting the program using the chaptering function can get you back to where you want to be a lot faster than 8x FF. (But again chaptering does not work when playing a recording from an STB.) Also, try the skip forward function (10 sec.) when getting really close to the end. It is more exact than FF and less likely to end by accident.


Hope this helps.
