dvr recordings

You use to be able to extend the recording time by an hour or more - now the max is 30 minutes.  With football season upon us it would be good to allow for an extended recording time.

Anyway we can get Comcast to go back to allowing more time?

When recording sporting events, you should set them manually just in case the time goes over. Max length is 7 hrs.

Do not use auto extend because it's been reported not to be reliable.
