This morning I have been having problems setting up recordings on Prime for next Sunday but get the error message "this programme cannot be booked at this time.  Please try again later. Code -2).  I do not have too many programmes recording, there is space on the hard drive.  What does this mean?  I have a panasonic hdd recorder.

Hi Susan

Try after 12pm and see if you can make a booking, as the guides get populated, Prime's data is actually a month advanced than the rest of the broadcasters through the Freeview System so may need to wait till the guides get populated throughout the day,

Let me know if you can make a booking then


This is usually a problem with the EPG affecting the booking process which will eventually be corrected in EPG updates.

Use Timer Record instead until the problem is resolved. The EPG is only a guide and not always entirely accurate. Timer record always works.

Thanks, working now.  The other problem I have noticed is that when the red light blinks for a few minutes before recording starts, sometimes it never goes into record mode and unless I notice it I miss getting the program recorded.  Any thoughts?
