I noticed yesterday that HIGNFY failed to record on Friday night. I thought series linking was designed to cope with this sort of eventuality? (One program delayed because of extended news coverage.)
I don't have experience of satellite, but with terrestrial I think if the recorder only wakes up in time for the programme (ie not on a prior occasion where the EPG has been updated) and the start flag does not occur within a certain window of the time it thinks it should be, then the recording is lost.
