After more than a year recording length still does not match guide
This has been an ongoing issue for more than a year and multiple people have mentioned it on this forum. When I record a sporting event such as a football game like today that runs from 9am to noon, it records the program from 4 to as much as 6 hours by default.
This causes multiple conflicts with future recordings as it exceeds the total number of simultaneous recordings my DVR can handle. This results in skipping scheduled recordings.
There is no way of reducing the amount of time a recording is set to by default. I'm sure some software developer thought this was a great idea in case the game ran long but its caused more problems than it solved.
