I discovered another semi-related feature that is gone from the Hopper. On the 622/722 when you were watching a show if you pressed record you were presented with several options. One of which was to record until manually stopped. This is not present on the Hopper. I was watching WSOP Main Event on ESPN last night and it went hours past the allotted time. All it would allow me to do is record the current show then add time to it, which is limited to 90 minutes. I needed more than 90 minutes.
BTW, this show ended up going for TWELVE hours. Only ten hours over the scheduled time. I watched most of it later on ESPN3.com
