x1 record options are inconsistent



This is more of a complaint than a quesion. Here goes:

- When setting the stop time in "Record Options", supposedly "regular" programs have add 3, or 5 minutes. And live programs have 30, 60 or 90 minutes. However, the distinction between "regular" and "live" is not consistently coded by the channels. We have seen what we would call "live" programs, but we could not add 30 minutes. I suggest the same option for all programs: 3, 5, 30, 60 or 90. Then you can make your own choices.

- Today we tired to setup a recording for a 7:30-hour program on channel 790 (Mueller testifies). This is a "live" program and we expected to see the 30, 60, 90 options, but no. Instead we saw a completely different format. Instead of start and stop time options, there is a "Duration" option.

IT DEFAULTED TO 1 HOUR. FOR A 7:30 BLOCK. THIS IS WRONG. If we had not gone and checked the record options, we would have lost the last 6:30.

- And again, why the change in format? You should be consistent. Make it easy, not hard.

- Also, the default dould be for the FULL time.
