OTA Sports recording time not extended by 60 minutes

Several times I have been frustrated by missing the last part of a Sunday afternoon NFL game. I have found that if I record the OTA source rather than the satellite source, that's when I run into trouble. I like to use the OTA source to save tuners for all the stuff my wife records.

I remembered to check this afternoon and edited the timer, twice to be sure, and added 60 minutes to the recording time. The default was 0 minutes, even though it was a sports event. I could verify the extended time when I edited and saved the timer, but when I looked at the list of timers and highlighted the game, the end time listed on the right side of the window was unchanged. I think that's what happened, but I'm not real sure now.

At any rate, I missed the Jaguars comeback in the last two minutes today, and was not a happy camper. I'm going to use the satellite signal to record NFL games until I get this figured out.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
