Recording Time Extended for Sports Events

Every time I record a sports event, Contour automatically extends the recording time by 1 1/2 hours.

I've already changed "Set Pad Recordings: to the OFF position.

How can I stop this extended recording of sports events?

  • Hi Rjd2633, our video engineers are investigating an issue where Contour 2 adds inconsistent amounts of time to live events and regular TV shows even when the Auto-Pad function is disabled. I replicated an example provided by another Forums member where a Contour 2 series recording of The Simpsons recorded for 2 hours each week instead of only 30 minutes. We will let you know as soon as we have a fix or workaround for this issue. -Becky, Cox Support Forums Moderator

      My husband has the same problem when recording his soccer games. It records for over 4 hours. Any idea when this will be fixed? It's very annoying. Thanks
