Has anyone noticed DUKE not running on time? I record a program on Duke (2 and a half men) and it misses its time slot, sometimes by as much as 5 minutes.




I should point out I record this on a Skybox - manual recording and a musky plus - series linked. 




Yes I know Blame the sky box and the upgrades, but in this case I have sat down with my watch and watched DUKE miss its mark.




Has anyone else noticed this or am I just loosing the plot?


I have called sky about it also and they say its DUKE's EPG data.

Their timing seems to be up to 10 mins out from the broadcast EPG sometimes.

I don't really understand how in this day in age where there is very little live content and everything is computer controlled how a show can actually run late!

I hadn't noticed it being out by as much as 5 minutes, but most channels will often run late by up to 4 mins.




Live sports may be impacting EPG times. It can be unpredictable maybe Duke is trying to run the next programme too close to the estimated end of the live sports.




Mention it to TVNZ if it's bothering you a lot.
