Garfield69: Conclusion: The TBOX cannot currently record programs that are over 7.5 hours long!
TelstrClear, any feedback, news, response? Any suggestions on how to mitigate this problem?
Sounds like there might be a file size limit issue or something. 2GB file limits are not uncommon in file systems - it corresponds to 32 bits. The developers probably didn't think having to deal well with 8 hour recordings was a high priority. Given how rarely they happen.
I know it is annoying for you, but frankly I don't really blame them. There are much worse issues thy should prioritise first.
Like manual recordings. That would provide a workaround for your problem also. :-/
