I have terrestrial. Haven't noticed stuff not recording. My problem is it wont stop! We recorded hairy bikers last night and at lunch today i found the recording was still going, 13hrs of choice. I sent them an email yesterday about this, so far no reply. It is only happening with choice no other channel

What PVR are you using?

Also, the thread title 'Choice TV' doesn't describe your issue all that well.

A full EPG for Choice TV is available via Freeview satellite and I have recorded some programmes without any problems. Very pleased to see they are showing Coast which was one of my favourites on SBS before the plug got pulled in May.

Yeah, so obviously it's the software in the T1020 which is at fault, not Choice TV's EPG.

I have both a T1020 and a T1050 that are having issues with ChoiceTV EPG. Seems strange that it would be a software glitch with them when it is the only channel effected. I am getting all sorts of issues. After one episode being recorded the booked list will then say "awaiting" like the program is finnished but if you look at the guide it will still show the next episode as booked. Other  times as I have already stated, the episode starts to record but never actually turns off. will send an email To dishTV I think

I have noticed this once... IIRC the first episode of 'Walking the Amazon' was not recordable via the EPG. (Of course, you could set a manual time record) ... The second episode of the series was fine however.

Other than that, I've successfully recorded many other program on that channel however
