I had no problems recording all movies when I had Dish Network...
They probably weren't flagging it with original broadcast.

i've been having this issue as well. have done some research, and i think what coalman said is correct -- that a TBC / stabilizer is what is needed. some were made by Sima, but they seem to be discontinued. there is one available by Dimax, called Grex. it can be ordered from Dimax, or off of amazon.com (thru Dimax). it's $85, plus S&H. i think it will resolve all the issues in this thread.
