DVR not recording shows to the end

We have several shows across different networks which do not completely record. The DVR recording is missing the last few minutes. I'm assuming the DVR time is automatically set. If so, any other suggestions?

    Many shows,, especially series, do not synch with the start time and end time in the guide. You would need to add about three minutes to a syndicated show or series. Live sporting events that are DVR'ed should be allowed an extra hour of recording time. You go into your DVR's Recording Options to make the changes. Individual shows will need to have the padded end time manually added when set up to record.

    In contrast, adding time to the end of a series, will force the DVR to automatically remember to extend the time for all episodes in the series.

    For further details on setting up and chaging recording options, Google Search, "What guide do I have,?", Spectrum One of the top results will be a Spectrum page where you can enter your street address. Than select the guide that matches the one on your box to get tutorial links. Hope this helps!
