Yesterday I had a very interesting thing happen.
I have “Instinct” on CBS scheduled to record all new airings. I extended this week’s episode to record an additional 30 minutes since CBS often runs late on Sunday evenings. Approximately 5 minutes before “Instinct” started, I changed the extend recording to 5 minutes past end of show since it appeared that the shows were running close to on time and saved my setting. As I continued to watch the show just prior to “Instinct” I decided that the shows were running on time and so about a minute before it started i decided to again change the extend recording and this time it was to end on time.
When “Instinct” started to record, my Tablo used 3 tuners to record 3 copies of “Instinct”. Today i checked all three copies and one copy is 1 hour and 30 minutes long, one copy is 1 hour and 5 minutes long and the last copy is 1 hour and 1 minute long.
My questions for @TabloSupport are. Why did my Tablo make three recordings instead of just the last option I chose? Do I have to make changes a set amount of time prior to the recording starting to insure that only one copy is recorded?
Fortunately I had enough tuners available, but if this had been in the fall with all new shows, I most likely would have had a real problem and might have missed a recording of another show. I’m just looking for some guidance going forward.
