    My 870 has an EPG series-link timer event set to record 'Not Going Out' on Fridays at 2130 on BBC1. A couple of minutes before the programme was due to start, I happened to see the display flash up "CANCEL" and I had to manually start the recording.

    Why might this have happened?

    Ooh blimey, I'm not sure. V1.63 seems to ring a bell. Remind me how to find out.

    What firmware is recommended this week? ;)

    Edited: OK, found the instructions thread and checked. Unfortunately I'm already on 1.65.
