Yes, it really does keep recording. Last night it recorded Buffy The
Vampire Slayer. It says it was on from 4:00am - 4:04am, but the
recording length is 2:00:27 and I can watch the show immediately
following it in the recording. When it was time to record another
show at 5am, it used another tuner.
One thing I forgot to mention is that I have it set to recording 15
seconds before a program and 30 seconds after a program. Maybe that
broke at some point?
I'm trying a reboot only because I haven't done it in a while and
I'll keep my fingers crossed.
