Unable to play recorded programs when recording extends beyond scheduled end-time
I record all of the sports I watch… There is a major flaw with DirectTV’s DVR playback and Auto-Extend functionality…
if the program being recorded extends beyond the regularly scheduled broadcast, you cannot play the recording until after the program concludes.
so for example today I recorded the Florida State vs Clemson football game. At 3:15 I try to start the recording, however because the games broadcast time was scheduled to end at 3pm and at 3:15 the game was still in progress, my only options in my DVR are to cancel the recording. I am unable to watch the recording if it’s in “extended recording time” until after the live sporting event does finally conclude. This is a HUGE flaw and it needs to be addressed ASAP.
