    Not sure which channels. Adjust your recordings accordingly (expected to be a 12-14 minute speech).

    Most likely all of them.

    This is a pain. I think what I will try and do is assume about 15 minutes of air. Then, I can pad America's Got Talent and Criminal Minds (grabbing 90210 during its encore this week) and let the clipping functionality account for "starting" Lipstick Jungle late, and then pad the end of that. What a pain.

    Thanks W for choosing to speak in the middle of premiere week. But I guess this is important.

    This is one of those rare occasions where the extra start/stop times of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 15, 30 etc. need to be more granular.

    [EDIT: I just realized, what makes more sense for me, and would be a lot easier, since AGT and LJ are on the same network, I'll just block record ABC for 2.5 hours and then pad Criminal Minds by 30 minutes, and pick up 90210 on the weekend]

    Oh $crew.....I just realized tonight is the encore night for 90210. I don't know if I got it last night. I'll forego it if I didn't to make sure I get AGT for my daughter and Criminal Minds...or just forego AGT since it will be synopsized at the beginning of the next episode.


    Damn you George.


    [Edit]: Thanks to the futoncritic's ability to look at the schedule for past dates, I confirmed that I would have recorded 90210 last night at 8, along with NCIS. So it's just back to passing criminal minds, leaving AGT as is (on the SD channel and not bothering to move it to the HD channel prior to LJ), and padding LJ.

    I am obviously having a slow day at work in that I am worrying about this way tooooooooo much.

    Why don't you just pad Lipstick Jungle for 30 minutes?

    A: You only need to modify 1 recording, instead of deleting 2 and creating 1.
    B: When you're finished watching the part of America's Got Talent that recorded between 9 and 10PM, you can delete the recording, thus freeing up space on your DVR...

    Oh right, doh. While I record AGT on the SD feed and LJ on the HD feed, the HD feed will still have the end of AGT.

    So, yes, my final needs would thus be

    Pad Criminal Minds 30 minutes
    Pad Lipstick Jungle 30 minutes

    That.

    I just wish I could adjust this stuff from work. Now I have to choose between hitting the bar after work, going home to fix this first, or missing a couple of premieres I actually kinda care about. Thanks George.

    While AFAIK you can't adjust recordings over the Net, you can create new recordings, can't you? Why not just add new 30 minute recordings on the appropriate channels instead of padding the existing scheduled recordings?

    (And not to get political, but it hardly makes sense to blame Bush---Congressional Democrats have berated him for not speaking to the public about the financial situation...)

    I guess that would be one use of a slingbox, right? It gives you the ability to adjust things remotely....in addition to being able to watch stuff.

    One question, when setting up a recording via TiVo Central Online, doesn't it aask you if you want to pad? If so, I guess you could choose the programs you would need to pad, add the padding in your request, and then tell it to record no matter what (instead of "only if no conflicts". Shouldn't that work????

    You beat me there by a hair. I think my idea works a little smoother. Assuming I understand the functionality correctly.

    I'm not sure that the new recording request will override the existing recording for the same channel at the same time...

    We've just received two of the official updates (FOX and ABC). Times displayed are Eastern. Adjust as necessary locally. Of course, it's a live event so we can't even guarantee that the speech will last 15 minutes or less.

    Mostly because I have 4 tuners and don't know which box is recording which channels. So I might end up having to watch the last 15-20 minutes of something on the other TiVo. Which is even more annoying. I may try to do this, though.

    I live in the West so it may mess up my news, no big deal for me. I may miss the speech though because I will be out at that time but I always can catch it later on the interwebs. :)

    (I cannot complain about this one, I was one of the screaming Democrats.) :)

    It never ceases to amaze me the number of people who ***** about a presidential speech disturbing their TV schedules, especially in a situation like this where the economy's in shambles and it's not ridiculous to have the president speaking in prime time.

    Maybe it's because we have strong odds he's not going to say anything to us

    a) we don't already know if we care enough to be informed
    b) we don't want to hear
    c) that isn't 100% spin

    and we'd prefer he not posture to the public just to do that.

    (and for the record, I'd be just as ticked if he were a Democrat, an Indy, or an Aardvark)

    I try to stay out of political discussions, but I've been having a real problem with the Aardvarkian positions as of late. They only seem to focus on the small stuff right in front of them....:p
