Not quite sure what you mean? Do you mean hit Record and have it keep recording until you press Stop rather than it stopping at the end of the current programme? If so, I know that you can adjust the end time of Instant Recordings (can't remember how though as I've never done it).is there a workaround for time-shifting live TV?
i know you could hit record for one program, but if you wanted to time shift the entire evenings schedule for that channel, can you do it?
we used to do this most nights with the old sky+box - we have a baby!
Well I don't seem to get this. If I pause and restart a few minutes later the machine plays out the rest of the program to its end. However, I've not had the need to run a whole evening's programs under timeshifting. I would expect many owners of this machine to want the time shift facility, so I would have thought that if this were a general problem we would have heard a lot more about it. Perhaps others could help you by reporting if they are suffering as you do?yes, I mean time shifting.
It's the time shifting function that has the problem I described in the opening post (e.g. you just hit pause and then play again 5 mins later).
So although it has 2 hour buffer, it just chucks you out to live broadcast before you've finished watching it.
It's such a big flaw that I don't whether I have a faulty box or most people don't time shift so aren't that bothered about it.
Well thank goodness for that! Pleased that you are now in sync with the rest of us.Just wanted to update this thread in case anyone had similar complaints.
It turns out my T2 was not working properly. Not sure what corrected it. I did resets, hard re-boots and of course the recent software update.
Live pause now works.
I must admit I couldn't understand why the forums weren't littered with live pause complaints and a huge return rate on these boxes.
