HD Nextbox 3.0 How can I record *only* a portion of a program?

Example: Local CBC news is scheduled from 5:00 pm to 6:30pm.  I only want to record from 6:00 pm to 6:30.

 

Problem:  The "Start: <On-Time>" only provides options of: <5 Minutes Before>, <15 Minutes Before> ... ❤️ Hours Before>.

 

Any ideas?  What am I missing (just got the new NextBox)?

Dont have the box infront of me.. so cant quote 100 %..

But going into the settings.. SOMEWHERE burried in there, is the way to do a MANUAL recording.. where i beleive you can 100% set the start time, etc..

 

Little pain to do it.. but SHOULD be doable, etc.

HappyHappy,
Try this:

- Press SETTINGS button on remote.
- Press RIGHT ARROW a few times until you highlight the "Recorded TV" tab.
- Press DOWN ARROW a few times until you highlight "Add a Recording". Select it by pressing "OK/Select" button.
- Pick "Set Recording Manually" and hit "OK/Select" button.
- Set up your recording, then hit "Save".

I hope this helps!

Thanks Gdkitty and robindp!  It works as advertised.

 

Now, how can I change that manual recording into a series?  Once again, I am stumped.  TIA.

The only problem with manual recordings is that they're only identified as "manual recording" and the date/time (at least on the 8300).

Is it possible to schedule a manual recording with the NextBox 3.0, as you could with the 8300HD?

I can't seem to find any way to do this.

@Ericmaginnis @HappyHappy  Rogers, in their infinite wisdom has decided that we no longer need to record just part of a program.  This feature was VERY useful when it was present in the SA 8300 PVR.  In fact - I used it with 3 or 4 programs that I recorded every day as series.

 

But with the introduction of the perfect NB 2 and NB 3 PVR's - the ability to simply select part of a program that we want to record is something Rogers knows we no longer want. 

 

I bow to Rogers great wisdom. 

 

The designers of the NB 2 and NB 3 must be wiser than me.

 

I guess I don't need that feature any more.
