    Extending a recording in progress

    Is there any way to take a program that's already recording and change its' ending time?

    For instance if sporting event is going into overtime, could you change the ending time padding "on the fly" from 2 minutes to say, 32 minutes?

    If not, maybe a new feature request??

    There is currently no way to extend a recording that is in progress.

    That's why I put it in the wishlist

    The simplest way is to record the following programme and adjust accordingly but it would be nice to have an easy override.

    was this ever updated in a release? i.e. if a sports event like basketball goes into overtime, can u manually increase the recording duration, or can epg download info for the new slot every 5 minutes?
