On The DVR Learning Curve

Well, I learned an important lesson with DVR today. A scheduled recording will NOT go beyond the scheduled time and if you want to allow for a show running over you have to adjust the recording time longer.

The Giants were down by 10 with 4:07 remaining in regulation when my three hours were up. Ordinarily it wouldn't have made much of a difference except that the Giants went on to WIN the game in overtime:

Manning tossed a 22-yard TD pass to Amani Toomer with 3:28 left in regulation to cut the deficit to 24-21.

After New York got the ball at its 20 with 56 seconds left and no timeouts remaining, Manning quickly drove the Giants to the Eagles 32. A personal foul penalty on defensive end Trent Cole moved the Giants 15 yards closer and set up Feely's tying kick.

Great. As spectacular a comeback as you could hope for and I missed it.

Crap. Lesson learned.

At least the Giants beat Philly. I hate Philly. And they just saved their season. On to Seattle!

1 Yup, but you should know that if you adjust the recording time, it will screw up whether you can record something else. CBS football, of course, then it also made Cold Case run late. I tried the adjust the recording time thing, but it screws up what you can record, plus sometimes Cold Case would run a whole hour late. So I set TiVO up to record the hour after Cold Case. That works a lot better than adjusting the recording time does. Thought I'd pass it on.
