Is this possible and where do you access it?

I have a MySky+ but it should be in a similar place.  For some reason it is under the setup options.  If you go to the setup menu and choose system setup you will (should) see the option of 'manual recording'.

Hope that helps.

Yep that's right for MySkyHDI aswell. Setup then System Setup then Manual Recording. Then you can set a channel and time instead of a whole program. I've found it useful for things like tennis overnight when I've wanted to record one particular match but not the whole day etc.

Another useful setting is the Recording Setup in the same menu. Here you can set how much to add to the start and end of recordings. Sometimes things are running early or delayed so sticking by the guide you may occasionally miss the start of the end of something. So I have mine set to add 5 minutes to the start (ie start recording 5 minutes early) and 10 minutes to the end (ie, stop 10 minutes after it's supposed to finish.
