We have switched from My SKY+ to Vodafone TV .
All of our recordings are being cut off before the program finishes.
My husband is getting really frustrated......
With My Sky+ , the remote has a button that gives you a 20 minute buffer.
How can we rectify this........

We also have moved from My Sky + to Vodafone TV and recorded programmes cutoff before they finish as they sometimes don't start on-time as per tv schedule therefore when they pass the scheduled programme finish, Vodafone recording doesn't keep recording the programme, rather it's limited to the clock and not the programme. It's soooooo frustrating as I miss out on crucial Shorty endings.....

found this on another post where you can increase the recording buffer. Now, hopefully no more lost Shorty endings!

hopefully by recording conflicts you mean when you have 2 programs recording for 8.30pm - and one for 7.30pm to find that post recording at least 1 of the 8.30pm ones has failed because of a conflict..... yet is was accepted by the planner.
Or having 2 x programs set for 8.30pm - in going to set one at 7.30pm for 1 hour - planner won't accept because there is a time conflict when ther really isn't (except for padding?) Look forward to the update

I see this discussion re Vodafone cutting out before programme end was a year or so back. However it has started recently for me. I adjusted buffering today to 15 mins but there seems to be a problem at the start. When I start a stored programme I have to FF through what seems to be about 30 mins of the preceding programme to reach the start of the one I want. If the buffering takes up too much space at fthe beginning it appears that this will reduce the time allowed for the ending. Comments please.

We have had our buffer set at 15 minutes for years, but still sometimes miss the end of a program.
It happened last night and it is extremely annoying. It appears that nothing can be done to rectify the problem.
I don't think Sky would have an answer but if they do then we would certainly look at moving to Sky.

You must have another recording occuring at the time and a following recording preceeding the end of the programme that had the end cut off.
Padding will ALWAYS be reduced or removed completely, rather than fail a recording due to a 'schedule conflict' (keeping the end padding).
This is the same with SKY..
