    This is what we want since we NEVER watch any sports, but we do have our other recordings ruined by sporting events delaying the lineup. When we are home we usually remember to check and pad as needed, but sometimes we forget or are not home. Why not just create a function that slips all subsequent shows after a football delay? That doesn't seem all that hard to achieve since they claim the new funtion will auto-pad sports recording.

    Do all networks simply push out the schedule? My recollection is that the different networks have different approaches in handling sports overruns.

    Just making sure for all those Man U/Chelsea/Arsenal games where the ref mysteriously adds loads of stoppage time when they're behind . . .

    Am I allowed to be skeptical that a company who can't even get the schedule info correct for ordinary programming will somehow miraculously integrate real time updates of live events?

    Seems like that would be a natural byproduct of the extension feature. A problem area might be when a game runs long, but rather than time shift the following program, the network joins in progress. Definitely sounds promising, though.

    Is this getting added soon? I'm really excited about this feature. The only downside is the fact that the recording is over could prove to be a spoiler as to whether the game goes into overtime or not.

    most matches run an extra 10-20 of added time (injury, delay, etc) over the 90

    Though most broadcast windows are 2 hours, which almost always covers halftime and a reasonable amount of added time (and no extra time in EPL matches). (2x45' halves, 15' halftime, leaving 15' padding for stoppage time).

    Not so sure that it is far, far. They’ve identified that they will be using Thuuz data to do it and already have a Thuuz connection.

    1.5 hours then. I don’t have all of the options memorized, but I make sure it is more than 1 hour.

    I wish they had 2 hour padding, 3 hours in most cases is too much but 2 is often close.

    FOR many years now since the year 2000 i have been padding all my nba and nfl games for an extra hour and a half for overtime. i think only once or twice was it not long enough,but you can always just add 3 hours to be safe. If i know i'll be home to catch up to the game i add 1 and a half hours ,if i know i wont be able to be home that day i just add 3 hours extra time !

    i do an extra hour on nfl games. They reduced overtime to 10 minutes for regular season so now more than ever no need to go over an hour. Also can't recall having a problem with just doing an extra hour on NFL games. But it probably happened on some really long overtime game(s) over the years for all I remember.

    PLayoffs are different. Superbowl is its own beast. I still only did an hour for those though.
