DVR stops recording about a minute before the end of the show

We use the satellite service.   Recently, on several occasions our DVR has stopped recording a program about a minute early.  This includes both network shows and traditional cable shows.   When we hit INFO, the time reported on the TV is accurate.

Thanks.  We have an HR44 series device.   I've now pushed its red button, and I let everyone know whether this worked the next time we view something that's been recorded after today.

What is your receiver model? You can try a red button reset of the receiver (front where it says ‘PUSH’ or side by the access card for the HR54 series). Other than that, I don’t think there is an official solution to your problem.

It's not unusual to have time issues on DVRs. The DVR is nearly always recording correctly, its the channel that is not delivering the program at exactly the correct time. For example, my local news is often incorrect by a minute or so because the station is trying to maximize its ad revenue. Happens a lot on syndicated programs also. Network programming is nearly always correct. Only suggestion is to add time to any series links for programs that regularly do this.
