Sony Movies Action only recorded half of films

Hi - I recorded 2 films yesterday, both on Sony Movies Action channel.  Both of them cut off after 58 minutes.  I was not pleased when i came to watch them.

That's because they insert a 5 minute "movie news" half way through the film. It's an advertising loophole that some channels including ITV2/3/4, Sony and the Channel 5 group use. You will need to set both parts of the film to record.

It used to be that recording the 1st half automatically selected the 2nd half of the film after the Movie News. 

Whoever is entering the TV Guide data at the moment isn't doing these linkages, it's doing it on all the Sony Movies channels, and maybe others I haven't noticed.

Re: Sony Movies Action only recorded half of films

Just wanted to point out that in addition to recording both halves of the film, you also need to record the movie news; this is because even though that section is listed as lasting 5 minutes, really it’s only 1 or 2 minutes long, then the film resumes. This means that if you merely record both halves of the film, you will still miss a few minutes which played during the “movie news”! Highly annoying!
