I have a JC Matthew DVR-320T. It seems unable to record Saturday night's episode of American Idol (the one that spans Lotto). Has anyone successfully recording this using a MyFreeview PVR? I'm trying to figure out if it's JC Matthew's issue or an EPG (i.e. all MyFreeview PVRs) thing?
I'm sure I've recorded movies before with Lotto in the middle, and I vaguely recall having this problem before but that it fixed itself up. The problem is that the episode in the EPG is split as two series linked recordings. I have the PVR set to record 10 minutes after the show, but it will only record until 8.10 (ie 10 minutes after Lotto starts), so we miss the last 25 minutes or so.
It seems like after Lotto it figures the program is already recording so doesn't bother starting the new one and then that one eventually ends.
Obviously, I'm only interested in MyFreeview boxes, so it doesn't matter if your Tivo, PC, DVB-S or whatever records it OK.
