channel time based recording

channel time based recording

Why (and when) was the ability to use the web to set a recording based on channel and time removed?

Sports on Sunday delays all of the CBS programs. I would be "satisifed" to set a recording from 6pm to 11pm

Any attempts to record 60 minutes delivers only part of the program.

Also removed without notice was the ability to stop recording up to 3 hours after scheduled time.

Also removed without notice was my SPIKE channel.

 

Anyone up to a class action suite for lack of commnunications?

Yep they took away long delayed stop recording feature. Now when I want to record a show that is scheduled after a sports event, I get around this problem by setting recordings for my show an a few shows after my show.

That's correct, it's a work around not a solution. By selecting a number of shows after the one I want that airs after a show that goes beyoud the scheduled time, I get my show recorded. It may be split into multiple recordings, but it's all there.
