I am not sure if this post is in the right forum. For a Disk recorder - can one with all types of recorders specify, station start and end time. In the US there is a "Tivo" where a friend gives say CBS and Tennis and it will record that for the time specified by the station. Since sports such as tennis, end-times will very and a friend gets the beginning but not the end. I ask, can one specify the station and the start-time and the end-time for ALL recorders in the US/Canada regardless whether it is a Tivo or not?
