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?
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.
