BBC Red Button recording not playing

Hi

I recorded a 5 hour programme on BBC red button circa channel 862 when the 2014 Commonwealth Games was on. I was at the event and wanted to watch it back and possible back it up to DVD.

Unfortunately it was near the end of the competition and the red button service was deactivated before I could view the content.

Is it possible the content will 'play' when the BBC presumably uses the same channel during this years Olympics? I still have it showing in my list of recordings.

The error code is Ref 2042.

Thanks

Re: BBC Red Button recording not playing

I'm afraid you have lost the recording. Once the metadata stream from the channel is removed from the network, the recording will no longer play, even if additional EPG streams are added to the channel number again at a later date. Excluding Sky channels (who insist on the metadata being removed immediately a channel closes or is no longer subscribed too), metadata is normally maintained for 3 to 4 months after a channel ceases broadcasting on the network.
