To do this, in the HDUI go to "TiVo Central > Manage Recordings & Downloads > Set Up a Manual Recording." After you enter the recording and press select, select "Modify Recording Options" to change the start time to 4 minutes early.
Forgive a TiVo newbie for getting confused.
I thought I understood the overlap thing, but maybe not.
If I have two programs that both start at 10PM on channels A & B, and also want to record a program on channel C that runs from 8-10:01
PM, will the TiVo clip the last minute from that program as long as it has the lowest priority? Or will it clip the 1st minute from one of the other two that have higher priority?
The Sony DHG made this so easy because you could edit a program to end early!
