OK... now let's get to it!
Q&A > Why Are Some Tablo DVR Recordings Extra Long?
This week's question comes from April who says, "I recently noticed that some of my Tablo recordings are longer than they're supposed to be. I didn't add optional time so I don't know what's happening. Can you explain?"
Tablo Over-the-Air DVRs have an 'extend live recordings' option in SETTINGS which is on by default.
If a tuner is available, this Tablo setting will add an extra 50% of the runtime, up to 3 hours, to the recordings of live programs like sports or awards shows. So, for example, if a game goes into overtime you won't miss the final play.
What some Tablo owners may not realize, is this setting is also applied to season and series finale episodes like the Good Sam example above. The episode is an hour, but just in case, Tablo records an extra 30 minutes so you don't miss any big moments or cliffhangers.
