Windows 7: NFL HD recordings

NFL HD recordings

I have had an issue with recording NFL games in HD. The recordings seem to start at the appropriate times but then it stops 20-30 minutes in and then starts a new recording where the first one left off only for a shorter period and then never gets the entire game recorded. No error messages that I can see on the recorded segments except for the yellow exclamation mark. Does anyone know if this is due the DRM?

I've never had that problem with any NFL broadcast I have recorded with Media center. May I ask, how large is your hard drive? Have you set up in Media Center how much space do you have set up for hard drive for recording and the recording buffer?

What Settings are you referring to? If you mean how much time to record and such, then yes.

I have a 1Tb drive that I am pointing the TV recording folder to. I have not set limitations on the folder size. Are there default settings that I should adjust (I am at work right now and cannot check the settings)

Thanks for your help

I believe I have found the culprit. The 1T drive had a hidden partion that was taking up a large chunk of space. I formatted and re-associated it with Midea Center. I will test it out on this weekends games and will report back.
