Sometimes, you may want to record only part of a program. You may want to record a program on a channel that does not include individual program listings in the On-Screen Guide. Or, you may want to record everything being broadcast on a channel during a particular timeframe.
With the XFINITY on the X1 Entertainment Operating System guide, you can set a manual recording when you need to manage the length of time that a specific channel is recorded. You can also record only part of a program, record a program on a channel that does not include individual program listings or record everything broadcast on a channel during a particular timeframe.
Note: If you only need the recording to begin a few minutes early or end a few minutes late (including extended end times for live sporting events), the easiest way to do this is to set up a standard recording and then extend the recording time. For more details please see X1: Modify the Recording Time of a Program.
