Suppose Program A runs 9-930 and Program B from 930-10. I am watching Program A but have paused it so it is not live. It is now 940 and I am watching Program A on delay. I now decide to record Program A. However, starting a recording results in a recording of Program B from the beginning (930) and none of Program A is available for me to watch. Program A gets wiped out from the rolling 30 min memory.
When I first started with Tivo (Series 2) these circumstances would have given me an option to record the remaining part of Program A along with B. But that option doesn't seem to be there anymore.
AFAIK that has never worked once the program was over. IIRC if you want to record something in the buffer which has finished recording you need to create a manual recording for that channel starting from the beginning of the buffer.
I've always used the rule that if it's something I am watching, I always hit record. that way there are never ay issues. If I don't want it later I can always delete it. Otherwise it will be there for me to watch if I want. Sometimes you pause a program and don't get back to it for an hour or even days. By hitting record you don't have the issue of missing the programming.
