My number one frustration with the FIOS TV is the fact that the units can't seem to adjust like a TIVO to the time a program is running. For example, with my old Direct TV Tivo system, if the game ran 15 minutes long, everything programmed to record, including the game, got recorded correctly. Not so with the FIOS. Am I missing something? It's getting a little wasteful to start recording everything I want to watch PLUS the show after....
Don't know of any other method other than adding 15 minutes (or whatever) to the recording. Heck, considering the number of times the guide is flat out wrong it's a miracle anything records correctly
How do you add time to a recording?
Once the recording has started, unforunately you can't. If you scheduled a recording (that hasn't started yet) goto the DVR menu, select scheduled recordings, then select the recording you want to add time on. There is an option menu to modify the start / end time. This allows you to starte early (in preset increments) or end late (also in preset increments).
Is that what you are looking for? Hopefully yes
Just to make sure I understand. If i want to record a show im watching and want to include what ive seen so far, then i wont be able to continue to record after show ends to make somewhat of a block of a show. A recording that includes many shows.
