This has happened to me. From time to time, long sporting events are "split-up" in the programming guide. Why? Don't know. Sounds like this is what might have happened two hours in. Next time, check the guide and make sure there are no splits or segments to the same coverage. A Fail-Safe would be to set a manual timer. A bit of a hassle.

You say you are watching the event while it is still being recorded? Did you go to the DVR listing and select the event and then select Start Over? If you did, by any chance did you at any time press stop?
