When I set to record a programme, why does it sometimes only partially record it instead of the full programme. I set it to record a minute before the start and 4 minutes after the programme finishes?
Can you give us some examples?
have you looked at your recording hiccoughs? That should say what's gone wrong.
Home-my shows-recording hiccoughs
Set to record Sex and the City on Saturday, it recorded 1hr 27 mins. Puss in Boots last night it recorded 23mins. That the two most recent incidents.
And recording hiccoughs? That'll give you the best clue as to what's gone wrong.
Power lost! on some programmes but not all.
Mm. Check all your cables in the back especially the power cable. If that doesn't sort it you'll need an engineer to sort it out.
Im assuming you're not prone to power cuts where you live?!
Welcome to the forum community
I'm sorry to hear that some of your recordings have not been recording fully for you. I'll be happy to help check this out with you.
I have taken a look at your box remotely and all looks great signal and power level wise. The hard drive status is also looking great from here.
How are things looking today? If you have had any further instances of this, let me know the details and I can help further.
Keep me posted.

I set to record Birds of a Feather on ITV1 HD and set the series link for the programme about China on BBC2 HD last night, both have not recorded. 😞
Hi there carolsung,
I'm so sorry to hear that these shows failed to record on Thursday night, and really do hope you're able to watch these shows via our Catch Up on Demand service.
Could you please look at recording hiccups and let me know the reason why both of these shows did not record?
Many thanks and apologies once more.

Has this got to do with using only one remote control handset to operate tv and TiVo box?
