Two years ago, Superbowl Sunday 2013, the game went into overtime, and as a result, a new episode of the drama "Elementary", which followed the game, was truncated by my HTPC/DVR. I had given that particular scheduled item the maximum "end padding" possible, which was 60 minutes... but the overtime was just too great for that provision to be effective.
After that event, I whined my displeasure in this thread with these words:
I configured the capture settings for "Elementary" to add as much padding as CW_EPG would allow, 15 minutes prior to and 60 minutes following the show. Unfortunately, due to a significant time overrun of the Super Bowl telecast, 60 minutes was not enough, and my resulting capture of "Elementary" is incomplete.
This is my first ever feature request. If possible, I hope a future version of CW_EPG will be configurable enough to allow >60 minutes of post-program padding to a scheduled capture item.
Well, today, I noted that a new episode of "The Black List" follows the Superbowl telecast on NBC tonight. So I manually set that program to have the maximum end padding -- and to my surprise, the latest version of CW_EPG (which I installed a few months back) now allows up to 120 minutes of end padding! (The maximum start padding is still 15 minutes, as before.)
I did not want this feature update -- or my appreciation -- to go unnoticed. Thank you so much for listening to the users of your excellent software. From the bottom of my heart: thank you, thank you, thank you to the awesome CW_EPG Development Team!
