Pressing the record button from Live TV does the correct thing in that it
records the show you are watching from now until it ends.
It would be nice though to have a way to extend past the end time of a given
show. This comes up fairly often when watching sports programs. After being
burned by this I now always record the show after the game I want to watch
just in case we go into overtime...
