Today I was trying to use Microsoft Media Center to record a program right at 4pm. It was on Windows 7.
So when it was 3:59:45pm, the TV station already started playing an "intro" or a summary of the following program, which I also want to record, to serve as a summary for the whole program.
So I pressed
Record (update: the red record icon) on the program, and the smart Media Center recorded 3:59:45 to 3:59:59 as 1 program, thinking that the task is complete -- that the intention of the user is to record from 3:59:45 to 3:59:59.
I know the common explanation is: Media Center thought you want to record the program from 3pm to 4pm, and you start at 3:59:45, which is (yes, technically to an idiot's brain), in fact 3pm still.
So it intelligently recorded the mere 14 seconds. So how can it be accomplished, when I see a program I didn't schedule earlier and want to record from 3:59:45 to 5:01 as 1 continuous program? I can press
Record again, except on the screen, there is no apparent way to tell whether recording is going on. Are there solutions to solve these issues for the genius Media Center app?
