In the past I had trouble getting more than 30 to 60 seconds of Target, on TV3 to record at 7.30pm on tuesday nights. For the last few weeks I've been scheduling both Target and The Apprentice and all seemed to be going OK. Tonight, however, Target wasnt on so The Apprentice was the only show set to record at 7.30pm and for some reason I had the same problem with this show.
Error message in Event Log, logged at 8:33:04pm, was "Portions of The Apprentice New Zealand may not have been recorded. A signal loss occurred during the recording."
Interesting that it logged that message at the end of the recording window (set to record 3 mins after scheduled end) yet the recorded program contained only the first 56 seconds.
There was plenty of free space on the TV recording disk and no wind or rain that would cause 'signal loss' so not sure what has happened.
This timeslot - Tuesday 7.30pm - seems to be a problem one for me. Thats two shows, on two different channels that have failed to record in this timeslot. Seems to break if i'm only recording one channel, but work if two are scheduled to record.
To add insult to injury, tried to watch the show via TVNZ ondemand only to find out they butchered the video. Was ok until i got to the second chapter where they seemed to have dubbed the wrong audio track (think it was from following program segment).
