    (MCE) How can I record all of a show I've been watching after it's already started?

    Using XP Media Center 2005 and watching a live broadcast... MCE clearly has a live tv buffer, because I can rewind back over half an hour, but when I decide I want to record the whole show, and hit record, it instead dumps everything before I clicked record and begins recording from the point when I clicked record! WTF?!

    Is there any way in MCE to have it save everything in the buffer up to that point?

    When you tune in to a program, your Media Center PC automatically starts recording a buffer of up to 30 minutes of live TV, even if you have not scheduled the program to record. This allows you to rewind and fast forward through the last 30 minutes of a show.
    Isn't there some way to have it include the buffer in the recording?

    That's cause it's always already recording, as I recall.
