DVR is recording long stretches of the same show


DVR is recording the same show that is showing different episodes as one LONG episode. For example on May 31 Channels recorded a 180 min episode of Abandoned although it 4 separate episodes. This is happen numerous times. One day it recorded The Golden Girls for 7 hours as ONE file/episode. Surely, it's not suppose to do that.


I have noticed the same thing happen on more than one occasion too.


I've had that happen also.
The guide data was incorrect and showed 2 or 3 back to back episodes as one long episode resulting in 2-3 hour recordings.
OTA or Cable? Is the guide data generally correct for that channel?
Look in your DVR log around the time of the recording
