    I have owned this bluray-hdd freesat recorder for a few years now, and every now and then timer recordings fail, the red recording light comes on a minute or so before the timed program starts, and it flashes until the program starts then the red is constant and recording is successful, but on occasion, the red light just keeps flashing all the way through to the end of the timed program, and the program fails to record.

    what could this problem be? is this common and it there a fix?

    I can only think that he broadcaster fails to send the start control code.

    The machine is sitting waiting for it - but it does not arrive.
    It would happen in the case of programme changes, or poor broadcasters.

    To this extent, note the channel involved when you get failures because the major broadcasters are very reliable but some secondary channels can be very poor.
