I then watched Person Of Interest and Elementary on CBS from 9-11 pm, and at 10 pm I had a timer set up to record Scandal on ABC. (All of this was through the DVR.) Somehow everything became shifted again and instead of recording Scandal, it recorded Grey's Anatomy. And my guide information is once again shifted an hour later than it should be. This is about the same time of night when I first noticed it yesterday, strangely enough--don't know if that's related to the issue or just a coincidence.
ETA: I forgot to mention that the "Scandal" recording ended up being 58 minutes long, despite being set to record for 62 minutes. The timer shows as completed in the log, not stopped short for any reason.
Your best bet when you experience "bizarre" behavior like you are having with the DTVPal DVR is to do a restore to factory defaults. I've found from past experiences that if you don't do a restore odd things continue to happen seemingly at random.
I'm curious if you carried over any program timers (especially recurring program timers) over the recent time change. If so, that could be the cause of your problem. A few years back I kept some recurring program timers over the DST time change and they were fine the first week. In the second week after the time change, however, they shifted by an hour. Based on that experience I NEVER carry ANY timers over the time change. I delete all of them and re-enter them after the time change takes place. I have not had any problems since I started doing that.
Another point to make is that even though you were watching a program "live" while another was recording, your live show is still recording to the hard drive. Did you do any "trick" functions (pause, skip ahead, skip back, etc.) while you were watching your "live" program? From my own personal experiences (and I have duplicated this behavior) I have found that if you happen to be using a "trick" function on a program that is currently being recorded to the hard drive at the same time another program is supposed to start to record it can cause some problems. I have had skipped recordings, misnamed recordings, etc. all related to this.
Regarding your Scandal recording being 58 minutes long even though it was set to record for 62 minutes, that's a glitch that I have seen from time to time. I've had programs that I've recorded show up afterwards being a minute or two short or long but the entire program is recorded. Last night's Grey's Anatomy was 62 minutes long but showed up in my DVR as 63 minutes after it recorded. I think it has to do with the way the DVR calculates the time from the data stream that it is recording. Different channels have different data stream rates and I think the DVR is not always totally accurate in the recorded time that it displays after the recording has taken place.
