Suggestion for Sports team record options on X1 DVR

Suggestion for Sports team record options on X1 DVR

Having my team in the playoffs has sent my DVR off the ledge.  It is recording any and all programming related to my team, in multiple languages.  DVR was at 70% capacity this morning, but by the end of the game, there was over 10 hours of HD programming recorded today and old recordings that were marked 'save until space is needed' are now deleted.   At 70% I had no thought that this would be a problem.

My only current choice to solve this is to turn off the auto-record option for my favorite teams, and only record the actual games.  This may be a necessary evil in the playoffs since there is so much more coverage but hoping there's a solve for this.

 

The option of "record only once a day" doesn't solve this problem as there's no way to predict exactly what that one thing will be recording (i.e. DVR might only record the pre-game show and not the actual game).

 

Can you please add a way to only record actual games 1x/day?  Any other suggestions?

I record the timeslot and channel that the game is being broadcasted from.  I deleted all the extras that were either SD or some other channel that I will watch.
