Why does my DVR stop recording before the end of the program?
The recordings on your DVR are managed by the time showing on the guide. The guide uses GMT (Greenwich Means Time) and should correspond with the time shown on the GMT official site.
The time on our guide/info bar should be within a second of the Greenwich Means Time.
The time on the front of the box may be 10-15 seconds slower than GMT, but because that is a hardware setting only and the recordings are managed by the time on the guide, that will not affect your recording.
Some networks may not use GMT, therefore causing their programming to run longer than the allotted time on your guide. The DVR will stop recording when the guide shows the allotted timeframe has been reached, even if the program is still running.
While Bluewave cannot control the time that the networks use, we do have an option for our users.
How to extend recording time:
Once you have created a recording, you can adjust when the recording begins or ends. This ensures nothing is missed in case the broadcaster’s time does not precisely match up with yours.
