When I record smiting that I am watching live I use 2 procedures. If I want to record something that I just saw then I press record and "record at best" which picks up the buffer to record what I just watched. There are occasions that I want to record the rest of the program but not what I just watched. For example I am watching the Today show and they mention what is up coming in the next segment.
In this case press record and then select "season pass and other options" then select record this program. Now you get a choice to either record the buffer and the rest of the program at best. Or only the rest of the program in basic or what ever your options are set to.

A quirk to watch out for when pressing record while watching live TV. If the 30 minute buffer crosses 2 programs (buffer is from 7:45 to 8:15 and the program changed at 8:00) and what you want to record is between 7:45 and 8:00 you will get the current program 8:00 to 8:15 and the recording drops the 7:45 to 8:00 part of the buffer. That has hit me a couple of times. There is no way to record the last of the previous program.
