I don't know how hard it would be, but the first keypress 
could be record to the end of this show, and subsequent 
presses would extend by either 30 minutes or to the end 
of the next show.  This might be bad if you overshoot your 
intended end time and have to go through 14 days of guide 
data to get back to the beginning...

Pressing the record button from Live TV does the correct thing in that
records the show you are watching from now until it ends.

It would be nice though to have a way to extend past the end time of a
show.  This comes up fairly often when watching sports programs.  After
burned by this I now always record the show after the game I want to
just in case we go into overtime...
