Recording program that's already begun

Can someone please explain to me why I cannot record the remainder of a program that has already begun? I used to do this all the time with DISH, and I miss having that option.

 

Thanks,

John

You can. 

 

If you use the "record" button on the remote OR the 'record' option via the info screen, it will start recording from the point that you started watching.  It will NOT record from the beginning if you weren't watching that channel.

Really? I've been trying for months and cannot get it to work. I do just as you say, the unit says that it's recording, but then nothing happens. Possibly a faulty DVR?

Must be.  I just did it.  It takes a moment for it to show the recording on the DVR screen but I was able to watch a recording of a show I turned to after it had started.

Okay, I got it going. I had to do a hard reset (unplug/replug) of the unit. It shows to be recording right now. I'll see if it shows up under Recorded Programs.

Thanks for your help.

When in doubt, reset.
