If you recorded "Deadwood" on HBO-HD on Sunday night via timer or manually, please check your recording and see if the entire 60 minutes recorded, or if your recording was cut off at 49 or 50 minutes. My recording ended at 49 minutes, and I'm seeing several reports saying the same thing. If your recording was cut off early, please post your event length.

Thanks,

Mine cutoff at about 47 minutes. I thought it might have been because of thunderstorms. There was no evidence of a pixelated picture before cutting out.

There was something in the broadcast stream in Sunday night that the 921 interpreted as a STOP RECORDING command, or something along those lines. Most of the beta community reported this as well.

Now that's scary - Dish can send something down to stop any recording anytime they want.

Yes, oh Big Brother, yes, we will behave, oh yes - jam it where the sun don't shine!

What is even scarier is that E* can also stream programs into your recorded DVR list. They can pick and choose who gets what program.

This opens up target marketing somewhere down the line when E* sells your 'so-called' private information as they track your viewing habits and make that info available to advertisers.

It may not be next week, next month, or next year, but it is coming. Mark my words. The only guarantee about your privacy is that I guarantee you have none.

Dish uses a stop recording command on MLBEI so that you don't record the banner screen after the game ends if it is shorter (usually) than the 4 hr block assigned in the guide.

Well, a Stop command on things like MLBEI actually makes sense - that's why it didn't occur to me as related to E*.

I remember info from E* coming down the feed into my 501 when they added a bunch of new features - the variable-speed stuff if I remember right. As long as that's the type of content, I'm all for it. If they start downloading SPAM, I'm gonna go buy rockets and shoot their birds outta orbit. I say it that way so that no freakin idiot can possibly think I would actually commit a property crime. Actually, what I WOULD do, is accumulate signatures (virtual and real) and boycott the advertiser.
