    Both sporting events extended perfectly last night, including the 15 minute postgame. Thanks again for all your help on this.

    Martin,

    Does the minimum two-minute post padding apply to all events, like NASCAR, not just MLB?

    I am not sure that padding has an impact at all but I need to check the code out more carefully especially as it applies to providing enough post game time for any events that finish before the scheduled time.

    Martin.

    Post padding is not an issue if postgame padding is greater 2 minutes. NextEnd checks if an event is running every two mintues and if it less than two minutes from the current end time it will add the postgame time to the end time.

    There could be scenarios the full postgame time is not recorded though so I am waiting for sub to answer a developer's question.

    I also see a scenario where is *no* post-padding. What happens then? Is the two-minute test "hard-wired," or can it be changed? Maybe driven by config.xml? I thought that NextEnd started testing about twenty minutes before schedules end time?

    I am not talking sub's post padding I am talking the postgame parameter in NextEnd. NextEnd does start checking well before the scheduled end. I guess there could be problems with negative padding but I'm not going to worry about that.
