Sports or live special?

Post by skipfire »

Is there a flag or flags that will help me identify programs that are likely to run long? I'm thinking of programs such as sports and things like presidential addresses. I want to make my DVR extend the end time of programs following things that may unexpected run long, but I am having trouble identifying them. I do see that there is a genre list taht might include things such as "Golf", but having to list every possible sport type is not very maintainable.

That only tells me if a sports program is done at that time, that does nothing if the program I'm interested in is 2 hours later. It also is only 4 sports, Sunday night April 9th NCIS LA follows 60 Minutes which is after the Masters. The feature you mention does not catch golf, nor does it catch things like a Presidential Address.
