Yes I have tried on catch up and it works fine. But not all programs are on catch up that I watch. Hollyoaks on e4, Geordie shore mtv, made in Chelsea e4, some films and others that I can’t think of right now skip on record but not every time. I even took them of hd recording to see if it made a difference but no.
Welcome to the Community, I'm sorry for the problems you've been experiencing with your TV service recently.
I've taken a look at this from our end to run some tests on the set top box, we're detecting some errors with the hard drive and I'd like to arrange for an engineer to come and take a closer look, if you're available?
