I'm having a strange new problem lately. Some of my recordings (maybe about 1 in 5) record for longer than the scheduled duration.

Say, a recording was supposed to be 1 hour 8 minutes total, including padding. Instead, it will record for nearly 2 hours.

I can't see any pattern to why it does it sometimes and not other times. I'm also not sure if this is a MyStuff issue or not, so posting here.

The Extend tap's function is to "extend recordings based on the programme transitions signalled by the broadcaster (known as "Accurate Recording" signals in the UK)."

Some channels aren't very accurate with their signals, so this is the likely cause of your issues.

There is an Extend.log file which will tell you what's happening, assuming you're using the Extend tap, of course.

Thanks CCS. It seems I do have the Extend tap installed, though I don't know much about it. I'll take a look at the log file next time I've got it hooked up to my PC. Cheers Smile

The extend.log file will be very long!

Assuming you use TopManager, your best bet is to use Display| Extend.log| Delete to delete historic entries

Then, when you want to investigate it, use Display| Extend.log| Display
