There has been a few other threads about this, but who has the TV Pack working 100% (Without DVBSBRIDGE)

I can not get the recordings to schedule 100%, it either looses them or stopps recording half way thru the problem.
It looks like the problem doesnt exsist out side New Zealand, ive posted on the Green Button a few times and no one seems to have this problem.

Is our EPG changing each time its downloaded off the Sat?

If you have a working solution what did you do 2 get it going?

The guide does not work for recordings.  Either get 1 minute or it stops on the hour.  There's a few posts on the problem, and I even read one mentioning a Microsoft type person acknowledging that there seems to be an issue with NZ Freeview.

I am running dual HVR-4000s, but others have reported the issue with different cards.
