Nice job COMCAST. I just messed the end of the Minnesota Saints playoff game I dvr'd when the auto extend did not work. You did not give the option to extend past one half hour.
Hmmm. I am able to extend 1-1/2 hours. Probably varies in different parts of the country. I think the auto-extend did kick in for me on one of the really long games this weekend. But I've been caught before in the same frustrating situation you found yourself in.
Until -- if ever -- Xfinity remedies this once and for all, the only solution I know of is to record a large block of shows following any important sports event that might go long.
Does auto extend always add at least 30 minutes to a sporting event scheduled time? I have noticed several events that have ended on time but significant time was added to the recordings. It is taking up lots of extra space on the DVR with events I may want to keep for a while.
Is is there any way to turn off the auto extend feature?
The latest examples were NCAA tournament basketball games.
