    I've only been with E* for 4 months and my biggest complaint against them is the guide. It seems to always round down in 5 minute increments. I was with D* for 4+ years and their guide was much better about end times for shows. This week I missed the ending of Desperate Housewives because PTAT hadn't activated and also missed the end of Fairly Legal on USA. I wish Dish would use the D* guide.

    ABC purposely offsets their schedule on some shows to mess up DVRs. You might want to pad that timer by a minute or two just to make sure the end doesn't get cut off.

    That is why I set manual timers for certain nights on comedies. Like Cbs on Monday night from 7:00pm - 9:00pm and I catch all the endings of the shows . Same on Fox shows on certain comedy nights and ABC loves to do the late endings on their comedies too, so another 2 hour manual timers on Wednesday nights too. OF course I'm talking about the Vip series of dvrs. I only wish that they would allow you to do manual timers on the Hopper too.

    Multiple programs tonight were cut short again. I don't ever recall having this issue with Directv. The only scheduling issue I had with them was I couldn't get the receiver to stop recording an extra minute of The Bachelor, resulting in one less tuner to record in the next time period.
    This is why I'm hesitant to add extra time to recordings.

    If the hopped is like every other dish DVR when you use the system default of 1 min early 3 min late it will drop the pad if it would cause a conflict.
