BBC1 recordings / schedule unreliable

I know this is probably due to the BBC messing around with the schedule and news programs overrunning but a mate who records on Freeview is not having the problems that I'm getting with my Virgin box.

I've tried to record a few things late on BBC1 and it's either not been that scheduled program or the program has started late and so ruined the recording of films which are missing the endings. Saturday night seems to be the worst but maybe that's the only night I'm recording late programs on BBC1.

As the schedules for BBC1 are quite often unusable, is it possible to set a manual recording starting at a particular time for a specified length?

Re: BBC1 recordings / schedule unreliable

Hi , 

if you look in the settings, there should be some options you can play around to make sure it will still record if a show over runs if I’m not mistaken.

Re: BBC1 recordings / schedule unreliable

I’ve not seen any such settings. There is a setting where you can set live recordings to extend if they overrun but nothing about the current problems I have with BBC 1 listings which are quite often incorrect due to previous programs overrunning. You can only add a few minutes padding to the end of the normal recordings as well and I’ve had a few recordings which are missing half an hour or more.

Re: BBC1 recordings / schedule unreliable

Isn’t that what your issue is ? If it starts late then it would over run and in that setting , the run over bit would be recorded. Correct me if I’m mistaken. 

thanks

Yes - the "manual recording" is the last option in "My Shows and Recordings" and you select the channel and time slot.

You can also add padding automatically to all recordings, and/or series links.

Re: BBC1 recordings / schedule unreliable

Yes I've already got the maximum padding added but with the latest schedule messups it was nowhere near long enough 🙂
