Manual Recording Nextbox 2.0

Just got the Nextbox 2.0 and am shocked to see that you cannot set record times manually!!!!

 

If I want to record a baseball game...the time slot is from 7PM-10PM.  Well, most games go well beyond 10 PM.  With the old PVR system...and with everything else that I have ever recorded on in my life...you could manually set the beginning and end times.

 

Am I missing something...I have gone through all of the settings and cannot find a way to get around this!

Re: Manual Recording Nextbox 2.0

I know that you can set the recording to terminate later in specified increments up to three hours if you preprogram the recording but I cannot figure out how you can do this if you start to record the program after it is already started.

 

Any idea if this can be done?

Re: Manual Recording Nextbox 2.0

As for the OP's problem.  That is something that has come up before.  Not much, as i guess its not a super common thing, but you are correct that you can not set up a manual recording like that per say (8:38 to 12:46 for example).

 

AT this time, the best you can do, if you are setting it before hand, is to set the X amount past the end.

This part i am not sure, i would have to test.. but say its already started.. just hit the record button, it will start recording the show in progress to the end of its slot.  Now, i am not sure if you can, but i would check to see if you can go in and edit it then, and change the end time X mins past the end afterwards.

Re: Manual Recording Nextbox 2.0

I just hope they add manual record function which allowed specifying exact start/end times to the next Enhanced Guide update. It's the feature I used most often with the old guide.

 

The guide layout also needs to allow 3 hour view of the schedule.

Re: Manual Recording Nextbox 2.0

I'm curious about how up to date that link is. It had been "coming soon" for about a year now. I just hope they fix the software before they release it for the 8642. My app still shows recordings I deleted months ago.
