Tipy a triky

Television networks do not always start their shown exactly at the scheduled time.  To account for that, Media Center starts recording the channel of the show you want to record before the scheduled starting time.  Additionally, since some shows can run long, Media Center continues to record for a fixed amount of time after the scheduled end time. Some of you may like this convenience that Media Center offers.  However, I do not like how my hard drive is getting filled up with several minutes of other shows that I do not want to record.  Thankfully, it is possible to change the time intervals that MCE starts to record before and after a show by modifying values in the registry.  Follow the steps below to modify your values:

  1. Open up registry editor by clicking on the start button and selecting run.  Then type in regedit in the box and hit OK. 
  2. Once the Registry Editor is open, expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, SOFTWARE, Microsoft, Windows, CurrentVersion, Media Center, Settings, and VideoSettings.
  3. Next, to modify the amount of time MCE records after a show is over, right click on RecordingSoftPostPadding and select modify.
  4. Click on the Decimal radio button to convert the value into seconds.   Then, just key in the amount of time, in seconds, in the value box that you want MCE to use.
  5. If you want to change the amount of time before a show, just repeat the above instructions for the key named RecordingSoftPrePadding.

Once you have modified the values, close the Registry Editor and restart your computer so the new settings can take effect. 

Idea [I] While digging through the registry looking for tweaks, I noticed that Media Center uses a separate interval to stop recording if it is a sporting event.  Just follow the above instructions and modify the RecordingSportsHardPostPadding key. Since sporting events often go long, this is an excellent feature.  Way to go Media Center team!
