Question about extending recordings on DVR

Hello.  Try to figure out my new Countour 2 DVR and confused about something.  The site said these DVR can go up to 15 minutes early and I think 100 minutes late.  Yet the only option I see so far is 3 minutes early and 30 minutes late.  The old version had this ability to record late way past scheduled end.  Is there a setting to change or is there a box that actually does this

Whoever figure these times aren't sports fans because everyone know you need to record an hour extra all live stuff

    Record the next program on the channel after the sports event.  It's not a perfect solution, but at least you won't miss the end of the game.

    A Contour 1 will record from 30 minutes early to 3 hours late, if you can still get a Contour 1.

      If I am understanding this right, if the program is live you can record up to 2 hours later.  But all other recordings are going to limited to 30 minutes.   Which should be fine

      Still wish they could start earlier than 2 minutes but small issue.
