Ignite TV - How to stop and save a currently taping show?

I've Been Here Awhile

I’m taping a show (Olympics) but want to stop it & save what’s been taped so far. Only option I can find is to stop taping and cancel/delete!
Not liking the features on Ignite TV.

It is possible to stop and save a recording by "simply" cancelling a recording that is in progress, but the process is VERY unintuitive.  You do this as follows:

  • Go into Saved / Recordings and select the show that is being recorded.
  • In the next step, do not select Delete; select Record Options
  • From the choices of Modify and Cancel, select Cancel.  (This is WEIRD because you are not cancelling this dialog; you will be Cancelling the recording.)
  • From the choices of Cancel Recording and Keep Recording, select Cancel Recording.  (This is also weird.  If you select Keep Recording, it will cancel the cancellation and keep (continue) recording the show.  When you select Cancel Recording, it will stop and save (keep) the recording.

 

Your partially-recorded program will now appear in Saved / Recordings.

 

What can I say.  This is just an example of REALLY bad UI design.  If anybody knows a better, simpler, easier way to Stop and Save a recording, I would love to hear it.
