I had setup my DVR to record Prayers for Bobby. It's really quite simple, you find the show you want to record in the online guide and press the record button on the remote - it automatically sets the start time and duration for the recording based on the information in the guide. There really isn't any way to screw it up. Find show - press record.
Well, tonight we sat down to watch Prayers for Bobby. According to our DVR, it recorded 2 hours of Prayers for Bobby. Problem is, we got the last hour of Prayers for Bobby and the first hour of the show that followed it.
I've never seen this happen before. We've had other problems, such as power outages in the middle of a recording. But, we've never had it set the wrong start time. What's odd is that I had also recorded the Matthew Shepherd Story which aired earlier on Lifetime - and it recorded just fine.
Technology is wonderful - when it works
I checked the schedule on Lifetime - and Prayers for Bobby is not scheduled to be aired any time soon (at least in the next two weeks, which is how far out the online schedule goes). I could always watch it on the internet - but I'd really rather sit on my couch and watch it on my TV.
I wonder if I might be able to netflix it, hmmm
