The dazzle pinnacle software limits recording times and their tech support do not answer why it time limits recordings.
I emailed them three times with no explanation at all from their so called tech support.
Limit was 182 minutes on one PC and 242 minutes on other PC.

I switched to LifeView Tuner and software and recorded over 5 hours continuous which was “Der Rosenkavalier” opera with extras.
