Absolutely!! Standard practice to pad games on YES by at least an hour!! Even spring training games (yes i like watching the kids with jersey numbers in the 80's and 90's play) run long... As 4 sun nite, major brain fart on my part!! I was watching the bball games. I didn't record them; just let the buffer build up. Never occurred to me 2 pad The Unit.....d'oh!!! I did have a pad built into the S/L, but removed it after football. Gonna have 2 watch it online or d/l it.
