What in the world happened to this PVR recording?

Went to go watch Holey Moley this evening, only to find out that the whole thing recorded like this:

The minute of show that was recorded prior to this was fine, so I can maybe assume that the broadcaster is to blame for it, but if not: what happened?

I am not going to click the link, but just assume it wasn’t what you intended to record. I happen to have last season of Holey Moley recorded, but haven’t watched yet. Which episode was this one?

I clicked on the link. It's 'Holey Moley: Season 4, Episode 3 - Bear, Bear, BEAR!', recorded from ABC but unsure which affiliate it's from. Perhaps if they know the affiliate, they could try inquiring to the station and ask if they received any complaints about the broadcast, if it was an issue at the source.

Thanks for that, I didn’t even know season 4 was out. My series recording isnt working, and I have season 3 which I haven’t watched yet.

Oh, it's just a 16 second video I recorded on my phone.  This forum doesn't allow (or didn't allow) me to attach the video directly, so I just uploaded it to imgur and posted that link.   But yeah, it's season 4, episode 3.  I'll just wait until it pops up in the On Demand section to watch.

I believe that I am recording the show being broadcast via CTV.  By the time we got around to watching, it was too late, and I couldn't just go to live TV on ABC or any other channel that may have been airing the show at the time.    

I'm reasonably certain it may have been the same all over, regardless.

@ziggurcat -- within the Shaw Guide, future episodes of "Holey Moley" are on ABC and CTV channels. Some episodes, without any detailed Season/Episode information, are listed as being available on MUCH.

I checked www.CTV.ca and while "Holey Moley" should appear between "Hazel" and "Home Economics", it does not.

So, CTV may not have obtained the rights to post episodes onto their web-site, and Shaw On Demand also may not have the same rights.

I accessed https://www.ShawOnDemand.ca -- a web-site owned by Shaw -- and got a "security certificate error" and I was recommended to close the web-page, rather than clicking "connect anyway". The certificate was wrongly issued for "music.shaw.ca".  Via Shaw Chat, I was told that their web-admins may fix the certificate "in a few weeks". We'll see.

@rstra -- when I look at the Guide, I see that the episode on CTV that you cited is from "2019", and there is no "NEW" tag for the episode. If the information in the Guide is correct, this is a "repeat".

Look on CTV on May 31 for "Season 4 - Episode 5".
