As regular readers will know, I have had a poor experience with AR (Accurate Recording), others have reported it as the best thing since sliced bread, and some have difficulties which have been ascribed to multi-region reception. (Anybody who doesn't know what I'm talking about SEE HERE - click.) We know that some channels are suspect re AR, so anyone with AR set as default would presumably have to limit themselves to not recording from those channels - and conversely if you might want to record from suspect channels, then you need to have auto-padding set as default. This situation is considerably alleviated by the new developments in the custom software and remote scheduler web site, where whole channels or individual programmes can be selected for AR or padding. However, my personal experience remains tricky. The question is: how widespread is this problem, or is it just me? There are suspicions that some transmitter regions are worse than others. There is also a suggestion that somebody recording the same programme from the same transmitter succeeded on AR while I failed to track. What I propose is a survey: first stage get a gauge of the general experience with a questionnaire, then research the details in the responses. I'll be particularly interested in pairing up my experiences with somebody else on the same transmitter. So, if you are willing to take part, post answers to the following questions in the manner of my own response below. The questions apply to specifically the HDR-FOX T2 or HD-FOX T2 with a hard drive connected.
