Sky+ - Missing starts and ends of programs


Active Member
Hi All,

Has anyone else been having issues with Sky+ cutting the end of programs and also starting the recordings seemingly really early.

I'm getting the grief from my mum as the other night she had over 7 minutes before her program started and then it chopped the end off (think it was Law & Order).

Seems to have only recently started (aka upgrades).

SKY+ does have manual and auto padding settings which act ontop of the start/stop times presented by the EPG and the banner.
The majority of channels do stick pretty close to the published times (BBC and ITV primetime being the exception) and SKY+ handles those very well on the AUTO setting.

The first thing to ask is if the actual program was broadcast late and if that was the case and the broadcaster did not update the EPG or banner info to relect this than SKY+ would not know.
