ChristineNZL: I just meant I record the next programme on straight afterwards the one I want to record. Not an ideal solution but it works.OIC. My expensive (at the time of purchase) HDD/DVD recorder is now only good for playing DVDs. I miss my old Digital Decoder. I also miss not being able to see in the T-Box the TV channel as on the old box. Not being able to adjust the length of 'padding' before and at the end of a programme is also a pain. Otherwise quite happy. LOL.
As for recording programmes playing through the TV Box on my HDD recorder - have not had any success with that. I used to have no problems with the old Telstra box but now I get a copy protection message which annoys me as you can tape channel 2 via Freeview and it's the same channel so why the copy protection?
