I think my last two VCRs had this. Been a while. But it makes sense. Good feature.jbernardis said:If two of you programs to record overlap by 5 minutes or less, it will partially record the lower priority one (as well as the entire higher priority one), only cutting off the overlap, instead of not recording anything at all as it did prior to having this feature.
If I recall correctly the HR20 will overlap as long as the recordings are on the same channel or am I mistaken?Billy66 said:The HR20 does not have it xtc.
One thing that helps with padding on the HR20 is that if your shows are back to back on the same channel, it will use only one tuner and place the padded part on both recordings instead of using both tuners to get it done.
Actually, according to my understanding, it wont record the first hour because the 1 hour overlap is too large. I think the overlap has to be 5 minutes or less.guins said:This is a feature I've wished it had for years....It really bugged me when it wouldn't record say a 2 hour show when in the 2nd hour there were two shows to be recorded. FINE THEN JUST RECORD THE FIRST HOUR THEN STOP....well it will now. :up: Oops, no it won't, my tivos are zippered.....damn!
Well, technically, two shows on the same channel can't possibly overlap.If I recall correctly the HR20 will overlap as long as the recordings are on the same channel or am I mistaken?
