I am new to Sky TV MySky+

What is the best practice for recording on a MySky+ sporting events that may go to extra time, such as the current FIFA World Cup? A few elimination games have gone to Extra Time and then to a Penalty Shootout.

Will the program auto extend or do I just record the next segment just in case?

Thanks

My experience of two games was they automatically extended.

For normal tv I'd add extra minutes to recording as tvnz and tv3 went through phase of starting early to try to make changing channels more of hassle.


But if it was a game that you _must_ catch all off I'd record the next slot too.
With a new mysky box you won't have space issues..

When it is a actual SKY sports channel it does autoextend. The one channel to watch out for is ESPN which occasionally doesn't

Yeah with Sky Sports channels they auto-extend, but I have missed Champions League and FA Cup penalty shootouts on ESPN as that doesn't seem to auto-extend (presumably because it's not controlled by Sky).

There is an option to add 20 minutes to the recording in the planner just in case.
