Recording wrong time, sometimes...
I have recently run across two errors in my Sage recording and they both seem random. Maybe someone here can help me figure out what's causing it. I'll put my system specs at the bottom.

1 - Recently I found that one of my shows when played started with the playback bar completely red. The cursor started at like 55min (out of 60) and continued to play for an hour AFTER the scheduled show. So I got the 1hour show after the one it was suppose to record. I thought there might have been a shift in the TV schedule except I have now seen this happen on 3 different channels with 3 different shows on 3 different days. Also, my brother runs MythTV and he got the same show w/o any time shifting problems so I'm sure it aired at the right time.

I have opened the offending files in Media Player and though it didn't have a messed up playback bar (started at 0min out of 60) it was indeed the show after the one I wanted.

So far I've only seen this happen to a few shows and lucky enough it wwasn't one of my Wife's shows. I've gotta track this down before it inevitably misses one of her shows!

The ONLY thing I have been able to come up with is that I have recently filled my hard drives up and Sage is now having to auto-delete files to make space. However, this is so random I can't replicate the problem for testing!

2 - I've seen this problem happen a few times once again seemingly w/o relation to one another. Some of my favorites show up as manual recordings when I'm sure I didn't schedule a manual recording of it. It's not a big deal just odd that it would do that. Once or twice this has resulted in a duplicate recording of something (two Futurama episodes one manual one automatic).

My guess on this is that I've been checking the 'Recording conflicts' page and occasionally choosing the "Always record show X instead of show Y' option. I wasn't sure why it ask me that since it was already set up in the favorites but I wanted to be sure I got my show. Does this count as a manual recording? If so is there any way to clear all the rules I might have now set up? I just want it to follow my Favorites. Where are all these *alternate* rules kept?

Thanks for the help!
