Extend the Recording Time of a Live Broadcast

November 4, 2009

Programs that are broadcast live, such as sporting events, may run over their scheduled timeframe. To ensure you don’t miss an exciting finish, at the time of booking, we’ll ask if you’d like to extend the recording time for any program that’s broadcast live.

Here’s how it works:

  • Schedule a live broadcast recording
  • View on-screen message asking if you’d like to extend the recording time
  • The default setting extends recording by 30 minutes
  • Modify the extension to be 1 minute up to 3 hours

This feature is currently available on the DIRECTV Plus® HD DVR (models HR20 and up) and the DIRECTV Plus® DVR (model R22) receivers.
