Broken Repeat Recording

Black Hole

May contain traces of nut
How would I identify a rogue recording?
I've done it by binary sieve (divide and conquer) - move half the recordings into My Music (where they don't get indexed) and see if that improves things; if not the rogue one must be in the other half... and so on.

However, I reckon in your case you have worse problems which may account for it. Tried a disk check lately?

Thought I'd come back to this thread rather than start a new one.

On average, once a month my T2 is non-responsive to the remote and doesn't record the schedule.

Could it possibly have anything to do with having BBC Red Button FreeView 250 as its default channel?

To actually address the post

Unlikely, Random hangs are an unfortunate fact of life

Using a simple timeswitch to force a daily reboot while away from home is a precaution against loosing more than a days worth of recordings

You're right.

The title isn't relevant to my new issue.

Apologies.

@MymsMan - Thanks for the advice. I shall probably hard reboot it once a week to try to forestall frequent freezes.

There is no clear evidence that rebooting forestalls freezes, it could freeze shortly after a reboot.
A timer switch reboot is a means of minimizing the impact of a freeze on unattended recordings
