Posting here because the problem is affecting both Freesat and Freeview Kit. It's causing issues in different ways both in the way that BBC1-HD is codeing the series CRID's and total failure of the Accurate recording start and stop recording signals
Freesat Platform (G2 - HDR-1000S)
BBC1-HD England and BBC1-HD Scotland have identical Series and Programme CRID Codes. I have seen this in the past causing issues with the odd recording. G2 Humax boxes at least generate two recordings when set from either BBC1-HD England or BBC1-HD Scotland.
From reading Luke's posts I think that this should not cause issues, but clearly does on Humax G2 boxes Luke if you read this please confirm this is correct. In the past when the BBC have used a different series CRID for Scotland from England the dual recordings do not happen.
This is impacting on recording reservations for other broadcasters simply because one programme is tying up both tuners.
Deleting BBC1- Scotland from your epg will resolve this but of course will not help if the AR codes are not at the correct times.
Humax G2 Boxes and likely the FVP 5000/4000T insist on the same tuner being used for consecutive recordings (despite the FVP units being able to record 4 at once from the same MUX). This only works if the first recording is terminated before the second one should start.

Generally this box has proved very reliable in recording everything set. No longer the BBC has totally screwed up virtually all recordings on BBC1-HD especially with consecutive recordings made on BBC1-HD.
I have recorded BBC1-HD Shakespeare and Hathaway with the recording sandwiched between Doctors and Escape to The Country
Every single recording of Shakespeare And Hathaway has lost enough content at the start to make iplayer the only way to view.
This culminated in Last Fridays episode chopping a whole 10 mins off the beginning of the programme.
Interestingly I haven't seen any postings from owners of Youview boxes, a box that totally relies on accurate recordings. Anyone know if these are immune or no owners have reported similar.
In a double whammy the recent prolonged High Pressure conditions has caused channel dropouts for many.
