Adding recording time
Posted 25 March 2012 - 11:16 AM
In checking, I found adding time now says one hour OR MORE, which apparently means until the end whenever that is. When did that happen and is it something I can rely on going forward? In other words, how does it know when the program actually ends so it can stop recording?

I would guess that the Guide Data would get Updated which would show the New End of the Program and the DVR would react accordingly to the Guide Data.
Yes, I agree.
The DVR doesn't actually know when a show ends or begins. It depends on only two things to make it's recording start/stop decisions: the guide data or the specific instructions of the user.
There was talk of having DVR's (and VCR's!) "know" when shows begin and end by analyzing the data sent in the vertical blanking interval but it never happened. Apparently, the software people were too busy developing apps for the iPhone.
