    Set the Good Wife to record : Start on Time, End on Time = 1 Hour of Recording
    Set the Mentalist to record : Start on Time, End 1 Hour Later = 2 Hours of Recording and makes a total of 3 Hours.

    Just try that and see how it works.

    I lost the last 10 minutes of Unforgettable Sunday from not adding now that football is on again.

    I have never seen that before.
    Of course it does not apply to what I do. Today I watched what I recorded last night and when it got to the end I deleted it.

    Totally depends on how much over the scheduled time that the ball game runs over.
    What if a game runs into overtime for one quarter ? What if it goes into a second quarter of overtime ?

    I have seen football games run over an hour or more long, so if you want to guarantee you wont miss your shows after the football games, you need to extend the second shows recording to cover it. I choose to extend the second show 1.5 hours....there is nothing worse than watching a show and 10 minutes before the cliff hanger ending, you recording ends....if you are so worried about space, add a larger external drive. Dont forget if all you do is record and never watch anything, you'll never get it watched and then one day in the future, after you have stored up 100's of hours of shows, the dvr breaks...and poof, all of those recordings are gone.

    Just experiment with it and you will come up with a plan that suits what you want to do.

    I really gotta wonder what this is all about. It's so simple to pad a recording. I can't believe that we're wasting time even discussing this for as long as we have. I'm gone.

    I just went thru the Genie Manual and Searched for Series and that chart was not there or I just could not find it ?
    Searched for Season and did not find it.
    Searched for Episode and did not find it.
    Where are you getting this information from ?
