Yes, you're absolutely right - poor wording on my part. I checked the media folders through the GUI last night, all the kiddie-channel recordings had valid thumbnails against them which the original failed BBC3 HD recordings didn't have. I haven't played them yet (got that to look forward to this evening!!), but at first glance it looks as though the problem is solved by 1.03.12, and the problem I reported in post #4 may well have been due to what MontysEvilTwin suggested. I'll keep an eye on things and report any further issues here, thanks for all the help!You should have already had CBBC HD, but not Cbeebies HD, or BBC FOUR HD.
