Lashams: Does the Magic box switch from the channel you are watching to the one you have set to start recording from time to time? My JC Matthew box does this occassionally, and I am wondering if it to would be caused by the muxes, although I was able to switch back to the original programme being watched so this probably isn't the case. It really anoys my wife when she is watching Shortland Street and the channel suddenly switches to TV3 when the recorder kicks in 2 minutes prior to 7:30pm, and right at the point Shortland Street is spinning up to its climatic end (yeah right, I don't share the same enthusiasm for the programme myself, but I do suffer the frustration of the wife growling about the box). The same problem is in the Homecast box, which I had for a short while.
No it doesn't .
The only reason I could think it might do that is if you were recording 2 shows and the program you were watching was on a different mux i.e. If you were watching TV2 (TVNZ Mux) and then started recording TV3 (TV3 Mux) and Prime (Kordia Mux).
