Instant recording of Live TV Shows

Instant recording of Live TV Shows

When I'm watching a program I would like to save the program and use the Instant record feature, I thought it had the capability to record the entire program, but looking at my recorded programs, it looks like it is only recording from the time you hit the red record button to the end of the program.  Even in your old system, instant record would pick up the entire program on the DVR.  Is there any plan to fix that, so if I want to save a program, and recording using instant record, it would be able to save the entire program.

Not possible with X1.  If the program is also available in On Demand, you can record it from there.
