    Mine has only done that once...

    It was perfectly recording items I had put on the manual timer, but recently, after the first download, I set the Timer function in the Menu to record from "1 minute before scheduled time" and to "1 minute after scheduled time". The first recording I tried to make after setting this didn't record, so I changed it back to just "at scheduled time", and now it works perfectly again!

    Have you changed your timer settings?

    I have had both successful and missed recordings. I have had my timer set to -1 and +5 minutes ever since the May download. I have used both manual and epg techniques to start recordings. I have had a mixture of successful and missed recordings from a 'repeat' timer item, as well as from individual items.

    I have not yet managed to work out a pattern which will tell me what, exactly, causes a recording to not happen. For the moment, anything 'important' on the analog channels is also being recorded on my VCR, just in case.

    I have to agree with Nigel, I get mixed results, with no obvious reason for failed recordings. It's a bit sad really, because if I wanted to record something very important to me, then I'll set the Video too.

    got this reply from pace:-

    Hello
    The next download has a number of improvements, some of which effect the
    recording feature.
    I hope this helps.
    Best Regards
