Little More On New/Live

Postby AllenDB » Mon Oct 12, 2009 9:35 am

Record_This scans Category to see if it is a 'Sports Event'. If it finds a sports event it wants to know if it is live. But there is nothing for a football game (or other sports?) to indicate 'Live'. There is no date or nothing. Am I missing anything?
Thanks.

What prompted this was some Bull Riding on CBS a month or so back. It caused all recordings on CBS those nights to be extended/shifted. It looked like it was recorded material because it always ended on the hour, not past. I'll think I'll go back to checking for NFL Football and the like and stop using Sports Event. Next time I see Bull Riding I'll look closely to see whats what.

Thanks, Allen
