Advertisements So I'm recording an hour and 7 minute program. 60 minutes in a program starts on another channel that I'd like to record. Problem is this is 2 minutes longer than the 5 minute overlap allows. I'm SOL. Why isn't there a way I can let my tivo know that I would like it to record the program even though I'd be missing 7 or more minutes. Take a football game. I'm watching one game - my home team. They happen to be tied with a team that starts play half way through the game. I want my home teams full game recorded as well as the second half of the rival teams game (Remember Oakland... It's not over 'til it's over!). Tivo won't allow that... I ask why not?
