It's December 2018, and the same thing happened to me last night, THREE TIMES. I am on DirecTV in Modesto with TCM on 256. I recorded a Laurel & Hardy movie called Nothing But Trouble and just watched it last night. Three times it broke up like shows often do, but you normally only miss about three seconds. Each time it broke up during that movie, it jumped ahead AT LEAST 30 SECONDS. Maybe even ONE MINUTE OR MORE. After watching that movie for one hour and 14 minutes, I completely MISSED THE PUNCH LINE of the entire film!!
