    I'm using the new Sony RDR-HX900 dvd recorder with Sony 32DX100 idtv. With smartlink, and using the EPG, the tv tells the recorder when to start - but it is not stopping it.

    What experiences are others having with similar setups. I am trying to identify if the problem is due to the tv's software or the design of the recorder.

    Check your recorder and make sure you haven't got it set to record for an extra X minutes (on a sony its in the options or bonus menu i think). Actually I like to leave this on - my humax often stops recording too soon so its nice my vcr has extra padding ...

    on the 800 its meant to run on for about 5 mins after programme end signal is given. Assuming the vcr was turned on by smartlink.
