Has anyone PVRed "Chuck" last Monday only to have it broken up into 2 recordings

Hi all,

I noticed that Last Monday's PVRed episode of Chuck was broken into a 32min recording and and 23min recording in 2 entries. Did this happen to anyone else? Once the first part ended, I had to go back to the menus to select the second half of the episode, and I think it missed a few seconds too because the first half ended in commercial while the 2nd half started halfway through dialog.

Kind of weird - is this specific to FibeTV PVR or does it happen to other systems as it never happened when I was on Rogers HD-PVR.

This happens when the VDSL link goes down. It could be caused by a STB reboot or the cellpipe losing its connection/rebooting.

Thanks. I wonder how often this happens (just I don't notice it because I'm not watching TV or recording at the time).

It shouldn't happen often, if ever. I've checked the logs on my Cellpipe and it has happened twice so far. The first one was a major outage in my area but I have no idea about the second one. The link went down for less than 5 minutes.
