    While you can record for longer than the program, you can not record for shorter. While you can start earlier for a program you can't start later.

    For instance, what do I do with ER which starts at 9:59 and goes to 11:00? How can I record the show that runs just before ER from 9:00-10:00?

    Doing it manually doesn;t help with the season pass.

    Activate "Overlap Protection". Your DVR needs the most updated software for this feature.

    I have a HD-250 HD TIVO. Doesn't it automatically have the latest software downloaded? How do I tell.

    And, where would I find "overlap protection" to activate?

    The current software version for the HD-250 is pretty far behind in terms of features compared to the current software version for standalone TiVos.

    The most recent HD-250 software doesn't support "overlap protection". Sorry.

    Just another example of why HD is VERY hard to do.....everyone involved with HD should be ashamed of how they have handled this terrific medium.

    It's not an HD problem, it's a Directv problem. They won't even release newer software for the SD Directivos, let alone the HD models.
