This issue has not been fixed yet. I discovered it over 10 months ago.I complained told them how to reproduce it they reproduced it said they would pass it on to the techs and then nothing 10 months later I am on at them again. asking wheres my update. 

Here are the workarounds that I have found to stop it doing the end of recording has been reached to soon.
Never live pause unless you intend to chase the program to catch up.
Never pause a recording you are playing back whilst another recording is being recorded. 
Never ever let the box run out of free disk space when doing a live pause.

You can live pause a channel that is not being recorded and is not recording another channel with no issues. 
You can start watching a recording as long as you are on the same channel as the recording and another recording on another channel does not end. 
Good news is that the recording will be on the device you just have to fast forward to the point it stopped.
If live pause stops press select not the back key (cancel) or it will delete the live pause buffer. 
Observe the above and you can just about live with it.

I would like to get a list of people with this issue and send them to sky or else you could quote my issue ID when you contact sky lets get it fixed.


again those clots at sky have set the issue to solved and it is not!

Yeah, I have this problem as you describe it, a PITA.

The recording is always there, as you describe. If I really want to finish something I am watching in live pause I press record and it will save it even though the end has been flagged.

Still a nuisance though.
