    A friend who has just got Sky+ was asking me if I knew the reason why when he has set a recording of e.g. a film on CH5 through Sky.........if there is a break for the 3min Ch5 news his recording stops at that point!
    Is there maybe something he's doing wrong?

    Yes there is, Five lists their 9pm movies in two sections with the news break having it's own EPG entry.
    You will need to manually selct both parts of the movie OR use the series link function which is provided on the first half to autmatically record the second. Barring that you can also use the manual recording option to record everything (including the news) in a single block.
