Recording shows that follow extended sports events

Is there a way to accurately schedule the beginning and ending of a recording when a sports even may run long?  I lost the last half of "The Orville" the other night because the football game before it lasted long.

 

Is there a setting to actually begin when the show begins and not base it solely on the time?

 

Thanks

No there isn't. But you can record the channel itself over a certain amount of time to ensure you catch everything when a sports event runs over

Often you cannot extend a sports recording beyond 30 minutes which is not enough time.  DirecTv allows up to 1 1/2 hours extension.

Record the next show that normally airs after the orvile.
