Recording the second half of a programme

If I get half way through a football match for example and want to record the second half when I record on my TiVo box it automatically records the whole programme which means when I want to watch the match back I have to fast forward the whole fo the first half.  Is there any way I can record from a certain point of a programme ?

Re: Recording the second half of a programme

What you have seen is a TiVo feature.

There are two possible ways to do what you want.

A manual recording for the time and duration of the second half.

Swap to another channel and then swap back. Check the buffer has purged and, if so, press record.

Re: Recording the second half of a programme

Thanks for your help. How do I check the buffer has purged because I have tried switching channels before with no success

Re: Recording the second half of a programme

Hit the start button and you will see the red bar that shows the amount in the buffer. If there is no red bar the buffer is empty.

This won't work if you swap to a channel which is already using one of the tuners. You can find that by pressing the Info button and then pressing down arrow several times.
