Can you record BBCi?


Established Member

I am wondering if any of the Freeview DVRs can record BBCi?

Specifically the African Nations games that are being shown on it.

Most of the BBCi stuff appears on channels ~300. My Topfiled PVR has no problem recording this, the only issue is that there is no guide for when things start, so I have only ever manually recorded stuff (as opposed to timed recording)

The Humax will also record channels 301 and 302 - no guide for these though, Its a matter of pressing the RED interactive button then using manual record.

I recorded some of the BBC Four Pop on Trial from channel 301 this way.
