    this has happened 3 times so far this week
    ok try this scenario:

    tonight I set sky+ to record CSI miami on channel 5 (9pm to 10pm)
    I started watching the show from the beginning at around 9.30pm (playback from the sky menu, not rewound using the buffer)

    all was well, until around 10.05 when I decided to temporarily stop watching the recording and watch the news on BBC1, now by this time CSI has supposedly finished recording?

    the problem is, when I go to watch the rest of CSI the recording still shows up in the menu but has 0% used and will not pick up from where I got to before the news.

    the only time this 0% business happens is when I start to watch a program from the menu that is still recording and stop watching part way through, It just doesn't work when I later go to watch the rest of the show?

    very annoying

    did a full system reset (services 4-0-1 select) and the machine seems to be working ok now, interestingly it shows 100% free space now when the disk is empty, it was showing 83% before so must have been quite fragmented

    Its nothing to do with being fragmented, the disk had got corrupted somehow this is quite common with Sky+.
