"That's normal. Your STB obviously has two tuners and when both are recording channels on different MUX you can only watch another channel that is also on one of those two MUX. TV1 and 2 are on one MUX, Prime is on another and TV3 is on yet…"

"I am glad you asked this. I reported this to DIsh several years ago and they said that it was not being reported by anyone else. Perhaps we can get an answer to this now."

"Thanks for that, broadcasters are not always accurate with scheduled programmes and at times they can go overtime. unfortunately the broadcasters can't quickly update the EPG to allow extra time for recordings. RegardsJoshua "

"Yes the time is set automatically by the satellite. I know TV1 is quite often running late but most other channels are more up to advertised time. I would have thought 5 min would be plenty."

"The latest firmware for the  DishTV S7070R doubles up when recording consecutive programs in the same mux (group).  It records the end of first program and starts recording the next program at the same time. I assume the DishTV S7090PVR…"

"Yes. If you record consecutive programs that is normal due to timer overlap and a darned nuisance trying to record consecutive programs on one channel and another on a second channel that conflicts. For consecutive programs I always use timer record…"

"That's what I thought 7 min should cover any delay. Its hard to know how much we are missing but if we have recorded the programe following then we have to go to that programe to see the end before the next program starts. Can you understand…"

Biggles replied to Alan Stanton's discussion recording
"7 mins should be more than ample time to allow for overruns. Are you sure the 7 min setting has saved correctly? How much of each recording are you missing?"
