    the last two weeks ive set sky+ to record "medium" on bbc1 and both times the recording stops at 47min and misses off the normally important ending

    i know about manual recording and adding on to the begining and end of recordings.

    as far as i know bbc didnt overun , and on the same programme exactly the same amount of time recorded in two weeks what are the chances of that

    any ideas anyone

    DO you have any padding set be a defined amount or AUTO?


    Either way the EPG can be over ridden by the now&next data, it may be that the BBC were running slightly behind and therefore the SKY+ stopped recording as the next show was triggered.

    I went to check my sky plus to see whether mine also stopped at 47 mins but last weeks was overiden (yes I'm that short of space!!) However on checking digiguide to see whether its repeated at all I notice that the episodes listed are ep 2, 4 (last weeks) 6 (next weeks) and then 10!!! Whats happened to the ones in between??

    I hate it when they do this - there is absoulutely no point in trying to watch the series as you miss half of it!!! :mad:

    Rant over :D
