Add extra recordint time

Post by Kottan » Fri Dec 30, 2016 9:52 pm

Hi folks,
this has probably been discussed already, however, it's a hassle I would like to get solved and could not find a solution:
Is there a way to add some extra recording time? It happened that a recording ended a few minutes before the actual movie ended - which is a pain in the neck, really.
Any help is appreciated!

I tried to find some wiki information for this, you'd think it would be a FAQ, but haven't found anything :(

Anyway for individual recording rules you can when adding/editing the recording rule select 'Recording Options' there is an option on there to 'End Recording X minutes late'.

There are also a couple of global settings "Time to record before start of show (in seconds)" and "Time to record past end of show (in seconds)" which will affect all recordings. I think the first method is preferred though.

The first method uses multirec for back-to-back recordings, the second method ignores the extra time in that case.
