I'm wondering if anyone experienced any problem with recording from C4 (satellite freeview)? Trying to record South Park on weekly basis, using "Record this title every week" option in MythTV but can not record the full episode. The episodes somehow are shifted from the C4 EPG. Something wrong either with the C4 schedule or with my setup. Though having no problem with other channels.

I'm not experiencing any problems although I'm using HD not satellite
the only thing I can think off of the top of my head, are you viewing something on the same frequency round that time,
have you set a delay recording time for that channel.

have you tried the mythtv NZ mailing list you might find more help there

No I'm not viewing anything on the same freq at that time. Good idea about delay, though not sure if it is possible just for one channel. Anyway I will check. Thanks a lot.

you can set a delay in epg for each channel in the back end
datadirect time offset (in minutes default 0 )

check your recording settings in mythweb
for C4 south park   click on advanced options (display)
check time stretch is 1 (default)
and start early=0  end late  = 0 (default)
