Setting Up Input Capture To Measure Period and Duty Cycle of PWM

I'm using an STM32F405/STM32F4xx family Mcu and attempting to setup Input Capture to measure Period and Duty Cycle of a PWM. After some trial and error after following section 13.3.6 PWM Input Mode I was able to get some values in CCR1 and CCR2. First, the period seems to be CCR1+CCR2 where as the example says CCR1 is the period. Also, I seem to get incorrect results about 20% of the time, which makes me question the setup.

Specifically, I am using Timer 9, Input Channel 2 via PA3 to accomplish this.

Can someone please explain, step-by-step, with a little more detail how to setup the registers to get this to work correctly. Including any precursory register setup/clearing that may affect the result that may be a little outside of the Timer 9 registers. Bonus, if you can explain what's happening when the registers are set that would be helpful! Thanks!
