I so hope that next year NBC gets their sh*t together with consistency in program labeling, channels, etc.
I had strange happenings on my DirecTV DVR. I manually set which sessions I want to record in the week before the next race. Got practice and qualifying down OK, they recorded as expected. Set the pre-race to record, declined the added 30 minute extension that comes with live events, set the race to record with an added hour.
When I opened up the recordings list, it showed no pre-race and 2 recordings - full length - of the race. But I couldn't click on one of them, it just rolled me to the next one. And that was the entire pre-race/race/extra hour. So I didn't miss anything, but the DVR sure had a strange way of getting there.
