Accurate recording

The one amazing feature that makes European DVRs so much better than American DVRs.

Our digital recorders cut off the last minutes of sporting events and our favorite shows. That doesn’t happen in Europe.  They have a feature that records the show itself, not a block of time.  The broadcaster sends a signal designating the show begin and end.

There's no reason it won't work, and our existing DVR's already support it.  The reason we don't already have it is because the cable companies won't implement it unless we demand it.  We can have the same feature if we make enough noise about it.
