We have set our TIVO box to record the World Cup Rugby on series link.
Twice now one of the matches (on days when there have been three matches one after another) has recorded in a bizarre manner.
The recording time bar is only coloured red for about five minutes at the beginning of the recording and the rest is greyed out.
The recording is listed on the my shows screen as lasting for, in the first instance more than 10 days and the second instance more than 12 days!
The recording has not actually failed but cannot be played back in a normal manner. It has to be watched as if it is a live programme. For example it cannot be paused or fast forwarded. Pressing any key returns the recording back to the beginning again.
This is a bit of a pain since most games are preceded by a load of preamble which we are not interested in watching and, of course, pausing so that we might visit the loo or get some refreshment is not an option.
