I have had a number of failed recordings of late both on my EX78 and Sky+ and the culprit in every case is the BBC. The latest cock up was last night "not going out" BBC 9.30pm. I noticed the recording pause light start to flash around 9.28 in readiness for the recording to start. When I looked again at 9.50 the light was still flashing. Obviously despite the fact that I have it set for series recordings the beeb had not sent the signal. The wife has complained the exact same thing had happened on her Sky+ box. Why can't the BBC get this recording signal sorted? When I tried to access the EX78 at 9.50 I was denied access as it warned a recording was in progress - I wish!
