    Stuttering on copied video playback?

    Burn the file to a DVD Blank in DVD-Video format using DVD Authoring Software like DVDFlick. A DVD player or a PC should play it back OK http://www.dvdflick.net/

    Stuttering on copied video playback?

    Download MediaInfo and open the file. Select View - Tree and export the results to a txt file. Post the text here. https://mediaarea.net/en/MediaInfo At least we will have something concrete to work on. Guessing it was a ntsc based DVD with a frame rate of 29.97fps.

    FVP-5000T- Time Shifted Recording stops at program end

    One this is only an issue if 1 You are recording the programme at the same time as you decide to use chase play. 2 If you decide to wind the recorded content beyond the buffer beyond the point the recording has been made to which drops you back to the timeshift buffer (you are no longer...

    FVP-5000T- Time Shifted Recording stops at program end

    Don't you ever read and understand anything ? It's recording the programme and then using the time shift buffer to view rather than the actual recording, that creates the issue. I do what you want dozens of times every week and never lose the end.

    FVP-5000T- Time Shifted Recording stops at program end

    Trev does your LG or Panasonic if you see a programme that has already started and you fancy watching all of it record the complete programme from the beginning at a single button push ? It's only the box maintaining the time shift buffer so that the start pointer is maintained to point to the...

    FVP-5000T- Time Shifted Recording stops at program end

    The only way to fix this is remove the instant record capability. As the issue is easily avoided that at least for me and I suspect most sensible owners would be a definite downgrade. The latter is a feature that I use quite a lot. For heavens sake I did exactly what the op asked, made a...

    FVP-5000T- Time Shifted Recording stops at program end

    I wasn't expecting you to use the view reservation it was an attempt to explain why it happens, it's not a bug the same thing happens on a HDR-1000S simply because of the instant recording capability. I have just set a recording for Ainsley Herriot ITV1 HD today 11:30. I started watching the...

    FVP-5000T- Time Shifted Recording stops at program end

    It wasn't a workaround, merely checking if your box works as it should. Without doing this there is no way to guarantee which programme will be in the time shift buffer Your recording could be scheduled to use tuner 2 on say BBC 1 and tuner 1 is currently showing say ITV. The reservation...

    FVP-5000T- Time Shifted Recording stops at program end

    Try this - instead of setting a recording set a watch reservation which ensures the box is tuned to the channel at the time the programme starts. After say 10 mins press the instant record button. Find the recording and watch this and avoid skipping past the end of the buffer by using the...

    BBC Scotland HD

    Only a factory reset or Freesat re-tune will bring it back. As our Scottish Members will be getting duplicate recordings from BBC1-HD England they might be doing the Highland fling :) They can of course resolve this by reciprocating and deleting BBC1-HD England (And Wales as well if they...

    BBC Scotland HD

    This a copy of the post I made on MY Humax under the thread BBC HD recording debacle. This was also copied to the BBC as a formal complaint Posting here because the problem is affecting both Freesat and Freeview Kit. It's causing issues in different ways both in the way that BBC1-HD is codeing...

    BBC Scotland HD

    I reported this to the BBC. It's down to the BBC using identical series and programme CRID's for BBC1-HD England and BBC 1 HD Scotland rather than giving Scotland a seperate Series CRID. It's also causing issues with BBC1-SD recordings picking other regions to record from rather than your...

    Humax FoxSat-HDR fault - am I correct in my diagnosis?

    The on screen menus and epg are actually 720p so not surprised they look a bit fuzzy when scaled to 4K.

    Humax FoxSat-HDR fault - am I correct in my diagnosis?

    1080i is already 1920 x 1080. Your TV will likely be de-interlacing and frame doubling to 1080p50. Check the AVR settings are set to simply pass through the Foxsat output rather than add video processing of it's own.
