Not recording full programmes.

Most programmes I try and record such as Celebrity Big Brother, South Park or Match of the day it will only record the first 10-20 minutes if I'm lucky so I can't watch these programmes when I wish and instead have to find them on catch up or on demand which is a lot more inconvenient.

Re: Not recording full programmes.

What settings have you got for each of the Series Links?

In the box settings, do you have Overlap Protection set to Clip, or Cancel?

Re: Not recording full programmes.

Hi I've just checked and it's set to 'Yes, clip the lower priority programme' Most of the programmes I have recorded are on different channels and usually different times?

Re: Not recording full programmes.

Change that to Cancel.

What about the Series Links, do they have any padding?

Re: Not recording full programmes.

How do I find out if the series links I have are padded?

Re: Not recording full programmes.

Go into the Series Link setting, and it should say something akin to 1 min before, 4 mins afterwards.

Re: Not recording full programmes.

I would change Clip to Cancel, and see if that improves things.
