Re: recording not recording full programme

If you press the play button your remote during the programme, does the red progress bar fill the whole status bar left-right?

If no... the recording is incomplete and there may be a reason for that.

If yes.... the programme started or finished at a different time to whatever was in the TV Guide at the time of broadcast.

Re: recording not recording full programme

If the red bar is full, then the programme is recording as per the schedule and it's the broadcaster at fault for the show running late or early. You'll need to increase your before & after padding.

Out of interest, what's the programme/series?
