Lately my wife has noted that occasionally recordings are truncated after only a few seconds of recording. It is sporadic, and I can't see anything in the logs that suggests a problem. 2 examples in the logs are a Face-Off episode recorded 3/7 at 17:59 which contains only 9 seconds of video and an episode of Legion recorded 3/1 at 21:59 that has only 20 seconds. Grateful for any assistance, WAF is dropping precipitously
PS Just noticed that the thread immediately prior to mine ("incomplete recordings") describes the same issue, although my recordings are always either complete or just a few seconds long, no 10 minute recordings I'm aware of. My setup is a pretty new machine running Windows 10 and a HD-PVR connected to component outs from the set top box. I do have occasional issues with the HD-PVR where it seems to lock up and lose signal and I have to restart it, but when that happens we end up with a full length recording of a black screen, not a truncated recording with the correct show displayed. This truncation has been happening only over the past month or two, which makes me wonder if a Windows 10 update is involved. Last thing I can think of is that my recordings are going to an external drive (USB3) as that one has the most free space.
