Question Does Sky Q have a Manual Record Option?

Hi Guys,
I've got my first 4K TV, so Sky Q could be my next step.
Is it true that there is no option to set up a Manual Recording on a Sky Q box?
To me this is an important function, as we watch NASCAR on Premier Sports.
Premier can NEVER get the timing right and without manual record, we would miss the end of most races.
Looking forward to hearing your comments.
Regards,
Paul

No, you can only set a program to be recorded (or series record) on the Program Guide. There is however a setting (in minutes) of how long it will record at start and end of a program, so that you don't miss the start or end but I do not recall the max setting (will need to check).

Hi Russ,
Thanks for the info.
With cautions (for crashes) and rain delays (they use slick tyres) some of the NASCAR races overrun by an hour (or more), so I don't think that will work for us.

Actually I just checked my Q settings and it is no longer there, I must have been thinking of old HD+ box. You could always set the program following the race to also be recorded which may work but never had this problem.

Hi Russ,
Thanks for checking, I guess recording the following program is the solution. I guess manual record is not often used.
