I just thought it might be relevant in adding cleverness to the settings in the AR controls if there was any kind of logic behind how the device handled overlaps and/or conflicts (without deliberately clashing late night weatherview recordings with roulette on ITV to stumble across what's going on). The bit about the type of AR data (time or Event ID) could also add something to the decision process when deciding whether AR is kept on a schedule or not i.e. if the AR type is only on time alone and not Event ID then that might help us decide one way versus the AR type being Event ID (on it's own or combined with time) could give us different reliability. But if not? Well like I said if it's no help, never mind - better to mention it and not need it than need it and not mention it.I always like more info, but I'm not sure if it matters exactly how a broadcast buggers up the AR (presuming it does).
Crucial:- to try and clear up some of your 'Don't Knows / NAs. For Q6 in the Menu >> Settings >> Preferencies >> Recording >> if both Start and End padding are set to OFF then padding is OFF, This means that Accurate Recording or AR is ON. For Q10 have you had many recordings that are not viewable? they may be marked as 'Failed to track' or some similar comment
Great, we have a match. Now I just have to see if Crucial records any programmes which fail for me. If you can give me a clue on your habits, I'll set up some tests.
Climber, the first few questions are designed to weed out people who might be receiving from multiple regions, because the common suspicion when AR fails is mixed-region EPG confusion. Question 2 says you are sure you are not receiving from more than one transmitter, 3 says you could receive from more than one, but 4 says you took no measures to ensure you are not tuned to more than one, and 5 says you have stations in the 800's which implies you are receiving from more than one transmitter (i'm not sure where 795 comes into it).1.

5. Yes (795 Challenge - No programme currently being broadcast..)
Don't think so, I've done it anyway. Something in the EPG says one is an alternative for the other and offers you a choice when you ask to record either, but it doesn't stop you recording both if you choose.I thought I read somewhere that you couldn't set the same programme to record on SD and HD using the same box, but may be mistaken.
Have you done it with a series link in both SD and HD, I thought that I had read that it would drop one of the recordings although I'm not sure which.Don't think so, I've done it anyway.
