Last night at 9:00pm, in the Eastern time zone, there was a special news report that lasted about 30 minutes. This not only screwed up my 9:00pm recordings but every one after that as well. I have 2 5040's and when I noticed that my shows would be delayed I went into the record options and extended the recordings by 30 minutes. However this didn't seem to work the shows had already started to record when I changed the record time length.


Anyway I thought I would start this thread to see what other people do when this happens, maybe we can discover the best way to handle this issue.


Thanks

I noticed this also and had recordings to "save" as well. We record CSI ands then Without a Trace, which are back to back. Since WAT would get the second half of CSI, I just set it to one time record the local news after WAT, and I was all set.


If I didn't already have the back to back shows on the same channel, I would have had to scramble and use one of the other Replays upstairs.

When I started this thread I was careful to say that my shows were preempted by a Special News Report to try to keep this topic from getting Political. I guess that was to much to expect.

known-bug going way back...you can't pad shows that have already started recording, you have to record the next show


would be nice if the replay would tell you after you pad it that this won't apply to the show that is currently recording...but no dice so far


all you can do when you know delays are coming is to pad the s*** out of all your shows and check for conflicts
