My HR10 died last week and now I have an HR20. I have poked around and found that padding a recording has issues. I use that feature a lot. I know some people record their program along with the following one to get their overtime. I think this would be a pain in the neck since you would have to remember what was scheduled after the show you wanted to watch. My idea is to use the manual mode for sports events and just set it for the total amount of time I want. Any issues with manual record?
