I don’t think its the recording more programs than there are tuners to cope as its quite rare to find more than 2 things worth recording on Freeview HD at the same time.
If no one else gets this then may be one of my tuners is not working as it should as I often record 2 channels but rarely 3 and only HD channels at that.
Any thing thats an hour or more always gets 10 minutes padding at the end but I might try reducing the padding to 5 mintues to see if that works as 10 minutes is a bit of overkill and not really need when there’s no big sports events on.
Thanks for the reply.
Because the 5000T has 3 tuners capable of recording up to 4 from up t o to 3 mux and the main PSB channels are on a single mux, there is no need to use padding at all. You can set up to 4 from the HD channels 101, 102, 103 104 and 105 all at the same time. The only exception is if you have COM 7 and COM8. Record up to 4 from the above. If you want to record from other channels then post what they are, Without knowing this no way to know if you are using more tuners than you have. It all depends on the Freeview Mux you are trying to record. Stick to t he HD mux you are unlikely
to get any issues.
If you want more simply set the 5th from the the SD channel, Ditch the padding it's causing your problems, The 5000T UI might be slow for the main HD channels it's the most capable box there is,
Despite a load of recordings from PSB1 (over 600) not had any issues other than broadcasts never made. Think your issues are down to not trusting the box and using padding for the few channels that do not implement accurate recordings. . Set start time and end time to auto and post any failed recordings details in future,
