Olympic Games PVR Strategy

The games are showing up in the Guide now and it's got me a bit frustrated. All the CBCHD early morning coverage is marked "Live" but not "New"; meanwhile the evening highlights are marked "New". So if I record New Episodes, I won't get the morning airings, but if I record All Episodes, I'll needlessly record the evening airings.

Anyone have advice or strategies?

Thanks,
Jake

Single recordings of the event(s) you wish to see, making sure to extend the time of any live programming.

you could always set up a manual recording to catch the early broadcast. Make it reoccurring and as 57 suggested extend the time.

You're best off recording it manually anyway, because the events will inevitably run longer than the coverage.

Update:
It turns out that anything marked "Live" in the Guide is also treated as "New" i.e. it records as if it were a new episode.
