    Hi,

    A couple of questions before I get my credit card out!

    1) Can you automatically pad recordings, for example 5 mins to start and finish of scheduled time. If this isn't a standard feature is there a TAP that does this?

    2) Has the "jump to the end of recording" bug been fixed when recording finishes during playback?

    Thanks,

    Rob.

    1) With a TAP (Jags EPG is popular and includes this)
    2) Reduced but not yet removed - technically it doesn't jump to the end of the recdording, rather drops to live tv.

    Okay thanks.... One more question....

    Can you trim or divide recordings? Can you partially erase a recording (for example removing the ads)? I can do all this on my Panny DVD recorder.

    Anything I record with the Toppy that I really wanted to keep I would edit on PC using VideoReDo, but to reclaim lost/wasted space it would be handy to be able to do these operations on the PVR?

    Thanks in advance.

    Rob.

    Yes, you can cut out sections and keep them (makes it easy to keep a bit and drop the rest), or cut and loose. However it's only acurate to the disk sector so you have to leave a few seconds as you can't tell exactly where the cut will be.

    That sounds fine.
