[mythtv-users] mythtv recording WAY past the end of the show

Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS (Focal Fossa)

Most of my QT libraries show version 5.12.8+dfsg-0ubuntu1. MOST of them
record too long. I don't think it is all of them. I can't make rhyme or
reason on which ones record too long but recording The Late Late Show, The
Tonight Show, and Jimmy Kimmel Live are all an hour and always record 6
hours every night.

If there is any debugging I can turn on in the mythbackend.log file let me

Hi Scott,

This appear to be related to my recent set of commits to use the std::chrono
data type, but I am unable to replicate the problem on my system. There is
another email thread going on the mythtv-dev mailing list about this

Can you tell me what version of Ubuntu you are using and what version of Qt
its running? I have a HDHR3-CC like you, along with a couple of other HDHR
boxes for testing.

Is it all recordings that run too long, or just specific recordings?
