For all those wanting to record 'Downton' on Prime tonight. I was setting up my PC to record 'Manners of Downton Abbey' on Prime tonight and noticed the record time set itself from 2030 to 0605. Thought I had a problem in my NextPVR software but got the same result after updating the EPG. Also got the same result on my Panasonic Recorder. There is currently an error in the EPG for Prime and all the Programs between 2130 and 0605 tonight are missing.
I'll look into it now
I reset my recorder manually via Timer record so I don't get several hours of unwanted recording.
I have identified the fault, unfortunately this cannot be easily fixed as the Freeview EPG was last updated around 6pm on a rotated schedule, next one I think is at 12 or 6am to load the next week listings for Christmas Day.
Manual Timers are the only option, Have just set this on my Mums PVR for Poldark
I've let the team know
Pressing the Stop button usually works on most recorders.
I used Timer Record for last nights episode as it was obvious when setting and checking the setup that the finish time was wrong and I didn't want to record several hours.
It always pay to check settings after setting the recorder. The EPG is only a Guide so don't rely on it being accurate.
Interestingly both the last episode and this weeks episode seem to have started before the scheduled time too. Even with my recorder set to start 1 min early I still missed the beginning.
I always add 6 minutes before and after the recording as the networks are becoming a little silly with the delayed starts and series not running to schedule.
tv programmes starting early are almost unheard of except for choice occasionally
The stop button won't stop while programme is recording
It does on my Panasonic.
