    Matthew, Graham already explained that if you change briefly to another channel, and back again, it will clear the buffer. However, have a look at my post from a few minutes ago, it makes life so much easier.

    Thanks for getting back to me, is there a way to clear the buffer out ?
    Can you let me know.

    No the buffer file isn't like a normal file. When it gets to the end it starts over recording the existing contents so in effect a circular buffer and therefore the file is a fixed size. When you change to a new channel a the box maintains a pointer to this location. Pressing instant recording creates a new recording starting from this point which continues to the end of the programme. You can watch this recording in chasing playback like any other scheduled recording.
