Since the update to freeview on the Waltham Transmittter I have been having a problem when I set a timer for series record for the six o'clock news on BBC SD. To give you an example.
Today Saturday 24th February I set a timer on my Sony HDD Recorder for the BBC News which today is 19.00 hrs. I set it at around 5.45 am and immediately the box started recording BBC TW0 SD BBC News and the timer said 3.55 am to 6.00 am. This has happened every day since the update. I usually use a Panasonic DMR HW100 box and I have noticed that it usually records that same day's Six o'clock News but later in evening it deletes the next day's timer for BBC One BBC News and replaces it with above timer on BBC TWO and records it to the HDD the next mornnig. The times do vary but are around 2 hrs. Interestingly on two occasions the timer has been cancelled by the box part way through. I know it may be the EPG updates around that time. A complete mystery, How can a box record something it has no timer set for it. Thought it was the Panasonic problem but now know it is nothing to do with my equipment. It cwertainly needs sorting as it si a real pain having to reset the timer each day.
