Recording sports that run long - DirecTV

When will the DVR software be modified to accommodate sports that run beyond their normal alotted of time? I missed the 10th Inning of game 7 of the 2016 World Series because the DVR couldn't add the extra time needed to capture the entire game. I had even recorded the following show, but the game ran even longer than that.

In the absence of a fix, that won't happen in my lifetime, how can I watch the 10th inning of the World Series?
