Automatic extention

If a live event such as football or Daytona 500 or golf, etc goes overtime is there a way you can tell? If so automatically changing any recordings on those channels to correct time would be cool

There is no real way to extend through the guide data. Even with cable boxes that have a continuous connection, it can take hours for programming changes to trickle through all the services.

Not sure about Gen4, but legacy add 50% to live and season finales. You could also deliberately tag a following show to record.

On the 4th gen, “Extend Live Recordings” only adds 30 minutes to the end. So I do recommend adding more time to the end if it is an event that you care about.

All I ever do is to set up to record shows 2 hours after my event . When I reach the end of the original, I open the next show to continue. It’s a habit I’ve had since the old VCR days.
