I get the same thing on Rogers. I just configure my PVR to stop recording 5 minutes after the show.

I haven't lost my mind. It's around here...somewhere...

Yes my 9242's are on software version 342 as well.

My 9400 is on version 362.

That's fine if you don't have another show to record right after the first one.

Yes I've also noticed on my 9241 that SOME shows are cut short at the end but they seem to have started late also. I don't think it is consistent across all shows (as was my 10 sec early start before) but will be paying a little more attention from now on.

My PVR has 8 tuners, so that's not an issue. The only problem is when the next show is on the same channel. I can get around that when the same channel has more than one number. For example, CBC Toronto is on 6 and 514.

The next show on the same channels is not an issue as you get the end of the first at the start of the second show. You might miss 5 or 10 seconds as the pvr recorder stops and restarts.

What really screws thing up is when one of the networks decides their show should run to 1 minute past the hour. That cuts off any show that wants to start on the hour.

I've checked multiple recordings now during prime time and on my 9241 all programs start & stop on time.
I think some of the late night shows get cut off early but they certainly started on time.

8 would be wonderful. Heck, even 4 would be nice. Does JamesK really have 8? How?

The Rogers 9865 PVR and the new 4K PVR have 8 tuners, allowing you to record up to 8 HD programmes at the same time, while also watching a recorded programme. I don't usually push my PVR that hard, but it is possible.

I have a second 9865 in another room where my wife sometimes watches TV, so theoretically, I could record another 8 programmes there and if I had WHPVR (Whole Home PVR) would have access anywhere in the home. I believe WHPVR allows for at least 3 PVRs within WHPVR, but you could add another PVR "outside" of the WHPVR setup but inside your home. I have no idea when the bandwidth limit coming into your home would be reached, but with Gigabit feed being available to many homes, it would be a lot.

I don't think the current TV uses Internet bandwidth and, other than switched video, the channels are always on the cable, whether being watched or not.

That may change with IPTV.

Yes, but the overall pipe (RF-coax) must handle internet, phone and TV. Although many channels are "always on", there are quite a few SDV channels, which only utilize bandwidth when "requested" by a customer on the last mile. Yes, that will change once Rogers switches solely to IPTV.

Anyway, the question was the number of tuners, which is 8 per new PVR...
