On any live sports, click Info for the program on the Scheduled Recordings page.  Then choose Record Options and add 1 hour to the Scheduled End Time and Save.

 

No provider can do what you want and you have to be proactive to see all the game.  If it's especially long, you may have to go to 2 hours after.  You can change while it is recording. 😉

Can't the providers (ESPN, etc.) tell that the football game shouldn't be scheduled for 3 hours?  I always add 30 minutes to an hour to games.

Recorded a game yesterday and added 30 minutes.  Unfortunately, it was a close game and needed about 5 more minutes.  Not AT&T's fault.  The fault is between me and ESPN.

Stupid broadcasters.  How DARE they allow teams to take more than their scheduled time?

Extra innings?  Nonsense... 

Overtime?  Un-necessary....  

Stop a race because there's an accident or a game because there's an injury?  Shake it off!

 

What we need is a psychic to predict the future and change the schedule.  Add time onto a scheduled sporting event?  .....pssshhhh....Makes perfect sense but that's too difficult (or easy?).  Woman Frustrated

Same principle applies to recording a show that airs after a sporting event, even if there are shows airing after the sports event but before the show to be recorded.  An example is "The Good Wife" on Sunday nights, almost always with a football game earlier.  This should also be obvious, but that psychic can only do so much!

Hey, doc, have you noticed a few times CBS scheduled The Good Wife at 9:30pm due to the football game and it worked last Sunday? 

 

Had to go in and change CSI back to Scheduled end time as I record the whole block from 60 Minutes to CSI. Smiley Very Happy

Yes, Chris, I noticed it after the fact since I was so used to the 9:00pm time.  But I don't think I would have trusted it to start on time, even at 9:30--it was probably just dumb luck that the football game ended at that time.  Since skeeter's psychic never calls me,  I'll just keep adding time at the end. Smiley Happy

I agree, have 1 hour extra built into the series info until football season is over.  I always check 60 Minutes to see when it started and was surprised I heard the tick-tick-tick 1 minute in. Smiley Very Happy

Strangely, I've noticed also that when there is a football game on Fox that is scheduled to end at 6:30, the "OT" show follows.  But if the game runs over, the OT is cut short and "The Simpsons" almost always starts on time at 7:00.  Hard to understand why the time management is so different from network to network, but it seems to work OK in some cases.

A time or two, I missed the last little bit of The Amazing Race when they eliminate a team.  I finally got in the habit of adding an hour (at least) during football season. 

 

CBS has since moved AR to Fridays so it's not an issue anymore.

Actually that's just the post game show that can go 10 or 30 minutes depending on when the game ends.  Then they can start the Simpsons on time. 

 

Totally different w/CBS as it's regular programming after football.  If they had a post game show instead of 60 Minutes, they would just do the same thing as Fox. 😉
