Hey all,

My Replay often records the shows anywhere from 10 seconds to 1 min early,
especially on Prime time fox shows... this has become a very big
inconvenience, aside from setting a buffer is there anyway to force a time
offset globally?

Thanks,
Chris

It's the broadcasters who are at fault. Dump them!

No.

It has become far too common for various channels to either deliberately or
accidentally be a little late or a little early. Using the advanced setting
for starting before or ending after is your one best defense. The clock in a
ReplayTV is usually off by only a few seconds.

Bye.

Don't blame RTV. I bet if you sit there with an atomic clock next to the
unit it will be accurate to within a few seconds. I have 4 units and 3
match my PC time perfectly while one is usually off by just 1 second.
The culprits are the networks and even some individual stations. Look at
the listings. A lot of shows are now scheduled to begin at 7:58, 8:59,
etc (check the time for ER tonight at www.nbc.com). Even if the show is
listed to start at the top of the hour it's no guarantee. They will,
however, generally end before the end of the hour. I don't know if
they're doing it to sell more ads or thwart recording but it's damn
annoying.
